Davis is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees.

Davis routinely sits against left-handed pitching, so it's not a big surprise that he'll sit against southpaw CC Sabathia on Wednesday. Stephen Vogt will come out from behind the plate to replace him at first base, while Josh Phegley will start behind the dish.

Davis was 2-for-4 on Monday night and hit his third homer.

The homer was the first for Davis in Oakland this year and also his first since returning from the DL 10 days ago. Now healthy, Davis will be the A's first baseman in almost every game when they face a right-handed pitcher and could be a nice play in daily leagues (or full-season leagues with daily moves) at a very cheap price on those days.

Davis (quadriceps) was activated from the DL on Friday and will get the start at first base while hitting sixth against the Angels.

Davis has been out for more than a month with the quad injury, but now that he is healthy he should start to see somewhat regular starts at first base for the A's. Mark Canha and Stephen Vogt will also probably remain in the mix occasionally starting at first base, but Davis should play enough to be useful in mid-to-deeper sized leagues.

Davis (quad) could be activated as early as Friday, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Davis has been rehabbing at Triple-A Nashville, where he played Wednesday night. The A's have not yet made an official decision on when he'll join the team, but it sounds like there's a decent chance he could be recalled efore Friday's game against the Angels.

Davis (quadriceps) will play another game at Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday before going to Oakland where the Athletics will decide whether or not to activate him, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

Wednesday was the early target date for Davis' return to the Athletics, but owners will have to wait at least another day for his activation from the disabled list. The decision on Davis' possible activation should come down before the end of the weekend.
