Davis went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in the 5-2 victory during the nightcap of a double header against the Athletics on Saturday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The first baseman went 1-for-7 in the double header. He's been in a major slump recently, going just 1-for-18 (.056) in the last five games, including Saturday. Davis has eight homers this season, but he has just one since April 28.

Davis (thumb) is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Yankees, MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis was spotted with a wrap on his thumb following Wednesday's game, but his presence in Thursday's lineup indicates he is not dealing with any sort of serious setback. Davis will man first base like he has done in every game this season and hit third against Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka.

Davis was spotted with his left thumb heavily wrapped following Wednesday's game, Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Davis hardly seemed concerned about the status of his thumb, but it would be the explanation if he was held out of Thursday's lineup. The Orioles figure to confirm Davis' status for Thursday's game several hours before first pitch.

Davis went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in the third inning of Thursday's lopsided win over the White Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

His seventh homer of the season was the front side of a back-to-back job with Mark Trumbo. Through the first month of 2016, Davis' production has been fairly typical for his career (low average and high power). However, there are a couple of encouraging peripherals in that his walk rate is continuing to climb and his strikeout rate is continuing to decline.

Davis went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer and two more strikeouts Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

While the slugger's settled into a nice power routine -- he's homered in every even-numbered game so far -- he's also on track to strike out in more than 30 percent of his at-bats yet again. But that's no big news to his fantasy owners, who may as well settle in and enjoy the ride.

Davis went 2-for-4 with his first homer of the season in Wednesday's win over Minnesota.

Competitive Edge Analysis

We can expect to see a lot more of the same from Davis, who's got 53- and 47-homer campaigns to his credit in each of his last two full seasons. Unless your fantasy league docks you for strikeouts, he's an incredible asset who should clear 40 homers again this year, health permitting, while racking up plenty of counting stats. Although Davis does have that tough 2014 season in which he hit .196 on his permanent record, he's hit at least .262 (last year's average) in three of the last four campaigns, so there's not as much risk here as that bad year would imply.

Davis is 3-for-27 with one home run, two RBI, three walks and 11 strikeouts through 10 spring games.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He hit one out in his first at-bat of the spring, but hasn't had an extra-base hit since. Of course, spring stats don't really matter, and Davis still has a couple weeks to work out the kinks in his swing before the games start to count. Davis, who signed a seven-year, $161 million deal in the offseason, is expected to be the everyday first baseman even with the additions of Mark Trumbo and Pedro Alvarez.

Davis will return to the Orioles on a seven-year, $161 million deal, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It appeared Davis had spurned the Orioles and their previous $150 million offer, but the magic of Scott Boras and the Orioles lack of left-handed hitters and power without Davis was enough to get the deal done. Davis will remain in the home run haven of Camden Yards, which was the second most homer friendly park in MLB last season going by park factors. There is a very real, and possibly even inevitable, chance that this deal eventually sours, considering Davis' high strikeout rates and defense that is questionable even at first base. The deal is the largest in Orioles history and positions Davis firmly as one of their franchise players.
