Davis did not receive a qualifying offer from the Indians and is now a free agent, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is not at all surprising, as Davis would have surely accepted a $17.2 million qualifying offer, which would have cost the Indians a draft pick. The 36-year-old was worth two wins last year, according to Fangraphs, producing arguably his best fantasy season to date. He hit a career high 12 home runs and stole 40-plus bases for the third time in the last five years. His fantasy value will really hinge on where he signs, because he needs a steady role in order to accumulate the counting stats that make him useful.

Davis is not in Monday's lineup for Game 3 of the ALDS against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

As is typically the case, Davis will take a seat with a right-hander on the mound and will yield the left field responsibilities to the switch-hitting Coco Crisp. Davis is 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts through the first two games of the ALDS and will likely work his way back into the lineup the next time Cleveland squares off against a southpaw.

Davis is not in the lineup Monday against Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Davis will sit for the second time in four games, as the Indians go with an outfield of Lonnie Chisenhall in right, Tyler Naquin in center and Coco Crisp in left. Davis is hitting just .184 with two RBI in the month of September.

Davis finished 2-for-4 with a stolen base an RBI in Saturday night's 8-1 loss to the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old collected his 41st stolen base of the season and was responsible for Cleveland's lone run in the loss, knocking in Jose Ramirez on a single to right in the second inning to get his team within one of the lead. With only a handful of games remaining it's unlikely Davis will touch his 50 stolen-base season of 2010, but the veteran outfielder has a chance to reach his second-best career mark of 46 he achieved in 2012 with the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Davis went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three RBI and scored twice in Tuesday's game against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran entered the game riding a 3-for-27 slump dating back to Aug. 19, but broke out Tuesday with his first three-hit performance since July 2, and his sixth such effort of the season. Since the All-Star break, Davis' slash line has dropped significantly across the board, but there is hope entering the final month of the year. Throughout his career, Davis has been a strong finisher, slashing .293/.332/.419 in September and October, all of which are career-best marks for any month.

Davis was the offensive star on Monday, going 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and a stolen base against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder has been very strong this month, hitting .324 in August. On top of the lofty average, he has two homers, five RBI and seven stolen bases in that time frame. His 11 home runs is a career-high for the 35-year-old, and his 32 steals is far better than the 18 he managed a season ago.

Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Terry Francona has made a concerted effort to carve out more starts lately for Abraham Almonte, whose hot hitting is beginning to cost Davis some at-bats. The veteran speedster will now sit for the third time in six games and could be forced to occupy the small side of a platoon in left field with Almonte, a switch-hitter who finds himself in the lineup Sunday with righty Jered Weaver pitching for the Angels.

Davis is out of the lineup for Thursday's contest against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Davis will get a regular day off Thursday, with Abraham Almonte taking over in left as the team faces right-hander Jhoulys Chacin. Since the start of August, Davis is 7-for-24 with one home run and three RBI.

Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, two RBI, a walk and two runs in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder went deep in the seventh for his 10th homer of the season, which was preceded by a game-tying RBI single in the fifth. Davis has back-to-back two-hit efforts, and the round-tripper was his first since way back on July 2 against the Blue Jays.
