Davis (quad) will likely miss more than the minimum 15 days as he has not started any baseball activity as of yet, reports Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Davis had a decent start to the year for the A's, hitting .282 with two homers and 11 RBI over his first 103 at-bats. He will return to his role as the A's first baseman against right handed pitchers upon his return.

Davis, who was placed on the 15-day DL on Sunday, has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 quad strain, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

Grade 2 is the medium level of such quad strains, which suggests Davis could be at risk of missing beyond the 15-day minimum. Manager Bob Melvin suggested the Athletics would likely use Max Muncy and Mark Canha as their primary first basemen while Davis remains sidelined.

Davis (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, MLB.com reports.

The Athletics initially said the injury would keep Davis out for the entirety of the weekend series with the White Sox, and with the first baseman failing to show much improvement while resting, the team elected to push his return date back further with the DL move. Max Muncy will replace him at first base in Sunday's game, but look for Mark Canha to factor into the timeshare as well during Davis' absence.

Davis (quad) remains out of the lineup Saturday.

A healthy Davis likely would have been held out Saturday with left-hander John Danks on the mound for the opposing White Sox, but he will get at least one more day to rest his sore quad. Mark Canha will get the start at first base Saturday.

Davis (quadriceps) is out of the lineup Friday against the White Sox.

Davis strained his left quad muscle during Monday's game, and with three opposing lefties conveniently due up Wednesday through Saturday, the decision was made to give Davis an extended rest. It's no lock that Davis will return Sunday to face right-hander Jeff Samardzija, but he appears safe from the DL.

Davis (quad) will likely get three games off -- including Wednesday -- with the A's scheduled to face a left-handed starter for three straight games, John Hickey of the Oakland Tribune reports.

The matchups will allow the A's to safely rest Davis' quad injury without missing his bat from the lineup. As a result, there's an increasingly likely chance that he will be able to avoid a stint on the disabled list. Mark Canha will likely handle first base for the A's over the next three games.

Davis (quad) is out of the lineup again Wednesday against the Red Sox.

While Davis isn't expected to require a stint on the disabled list, it's not surprising that he'll at least miss a couple games. Mark Canha will start at first base again Wednesday, batting sixth for the Athletics.

Davis (quad) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, CSN's Casey Pratt reports.

Davis suffered the injury during Monday's loss to the Red Sox, and while he isn't expected to require a stint on the disabled list, he will still be out of the lineup for at least one game. Max Muncy is starting at first base and batting sixth.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin does not expect Davis (quad) to require a stint on the disabled list, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports.

Davis was removed from Monday's game against the Red Sox in the fourth inning due to a strained left quad. If he misses time beyond Monday, the A's will likely divide his at-bats between some combination of Mark Canha, Max Muncy and Sam Fuld.

Davis exited Monday's game against the Red Sox in the fourth inning with a strained left quad, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Davis was running the bases when he suffered the strain and the severity of the injury is still unknown. As a result, the 28-year-old should be considered day-to-day until further news is released on his status. Fellow first baseman Max Muncy took over for Davis on Monday but Mark Canha could also see some reps on the field moving forward if Davis is forced to miss extended time.
