Davis is out of the lineup Monday against the Astros, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Davis will take a seat for the first time since his Opening Day suspension. It's likely just a well-deserved day off, with Steve Pearce playing first and Jimmy Paredes serving as the designated hitter. He should return to the lineup Tuesday, but more concern should arise if he's held out again for some reason.

Davis had a forgettable night Saturday, going 0-for-6 with four strikeouts in a 13-inning loss to Miami.

The strikeouts continue to pile up for Davis; he now has 61 in just 143 at-bats this season. This game lowered his average to .210, but fantasy owners should know what they're getting with the slugger at this point. He'll get his homers, but the strikeouts will keep his batting average in Adam Dunn territory.

Davis went 1-for-3 Saturday with a solo home run, his seventh jack of the season.

He's keeping his batting average at a semi-respectable .253, and Saturday's home was Davis' fourth in his last 10 games. He's also struck out an incredible 46 times in 99 at-bats, however, so that batting average could take a big tumble at any moment.

Davis went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in the first inning Wednesday against the White Sox.

He's gone yard three times in the last four games now, racking up nine RBI in that span. All of a sudden, we're seeing the Davis fantasy owners signed up for -- the league's purest power hitter, with a batting average that doesn't hurt. However, he's still striking out prolifically -- with 29 whiffs in 81 plate appearances, his 35.8 percent strikeout rate is even worse than last year's.

Davis went 2-for-5 Saturday with a two-run home run, his second blast of the season.

He also struck out in his other three at-bats, giving him 18 K's in 39 at-bats on the season. His .256 batting average is solid, but Davis will have trouble staying at even that modest level unless he starts putting more balls in play.

Davis went 2-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a run -- but also three strikeouts -- in Wednesday's win over the Yankees.

Davis continues to whiff at a spectacular rate -- 15 times in 31 at-bats so far, and he hasn't drawn a walk. Worse, he's only managed a single homer through eight games. Davis still is a legitimate threat to hit 30 homers, but it doesn't look like his average is going to bounce back to a respectable level.

Davis went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Davis now has 10 strikeouts in 23 at-bats. He needed 199 strikeouts to hit his 53 home runs in 2013 and only injury and suspension kept him from topping that pace last year. The 2013 season looks like a career year considering he hit .286, while his .196 average in 2014 is probably going to wind up closer to his career norm. Teams usually put on a defensive shift against Davis, and coupled with his high strikeout rate it will be difficult for him to be a batting average asset.

Davis went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's loss to Toronto.

The hits were Davis' first two of the young season. In the three games he's played since missing Opening Day due to suspension, Davis has gone 2-for-10 with a run scored and three strikeouts.

Davis will bat fifth as the designated hitter in Tuesday's game in Tampa Bay, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

After serving the final game of his suspension on Opening Day, Davis will make his season debut against Rays right-hander Nate Karns, who has just five big-league starts to his name. Davis had a mediocre spring in the wake of his disappointing 2014 campaign, slashing .250/.313/.450 over 60 at-bats. He's been durable over the past few seasons, and he was approved for an exemption to take Adderall again.

Davis is eligible to return from his suspension for Tuesday's game against the Rays.

Assuming he's in the starting lineup, Davis will have a favorable matchup against Rays right-hander Nate Karns. Coming off a miserable 2014, the lefty slugger slashed .250/.313/.450 in the Grapefruit League, with three home runs and 20 strikeouts in 60 at-bats.
