Davis is out of the lineup Friday against the Astros.

Davis will receive a night off with the left-handed Dallas Keuchel on the mound for the Astros. Billy Butler will start at first place in his place Friday, with Ben Zobrist serving as the DH. Given Davis' hot start to the season, it's hard to believe he worn't rejoin the lineup Saturday.

Davis was feeling better today.

Davis was almost put into the game for "an out or so," but his manager ultimately decided otherwise. He has not played a game since last Friday, but should be ready to get back out there soon.

Davis is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Davis has not started against a left-hander all season, so it comes as little surprise that he will sit out Tuesday against Angels starter Hector Santiago. Stephen Vogt, who hits left-handed but currently leads the A's with a 1.215 OPS, will get the start at first base Tuesday night.

Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

Davis will take a seat with southpaw Danny Duffy on the hill, giving way for Mark Canha to play first base and Cody Ross to take over in left field. Over his career, Davis owns an OPS that is 234 points lower against left-handed pitching, so the move makes sense from a matchup standpoint.

Davis was 2-for-4 on Friday night, including his first homer of the season.

Davis has had an excellent start to his first season with the A's, hitting .353 with a .995 OPS through 34 at-bats. Davis will hit in the middle of the lineup and start at first whenever the A's face a right-handed pitcher. He makes a nice corner infield bat in deeper leagues, especially those with daily or mid-week roster moves.

Davis is out of the lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

Davis was a big part of the A's offensive outburst Friday night, going 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and four RBI in the team's 12-0 thrashing of Seattle. However, manager Bob Melvin will stick to his various platoons and remove the likes of Davis, Sam Fuld and Stephen Vogt from his lineup with lefty J.A. Happ on the hill for the Mariners. Mark Canha will man first base and bat second.

Davis is out of the lineup Wednesday.

With a lefty (Ross Detwiler) on the mound for the Rangers, Mark Canha will get the start at first base. This is a trend that could continue, at least in the short term, with Davis getting the starts versus righties.

Davis went 1-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Davis dealt with back spasms throughout the spring, but he appears to be over the issue and back to full health. He's just 1-for-6 through the team's first two games, but he's found a way to get on base as he's drawn three walks. The lefty figures to serve as the team's everyday first baseman.
