Davis is not in the lineup Monday against Detroit.

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.

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 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.

Davis is out of the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the fourth time in the past six games that Davis will be out of the lineup. Abraham Almonte will get the start in left field as the team faces right-hander Michael Pineda. It bears repeating that Davis has been having a good season to this point (.257/.317/.401 with nine home runs, 36 RBI and 52 runs) but it would be wise to watch his playing time over the next couple weeks.

Davis is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Davis will be held out for the third time in the last four games, which is a disturbing trend, given the fact that he is right-handed and could theoretically be headed for the short side of the platoon. He has had an excellent season, so it is too quick to pull the plug in most formats, but keep an eye on his playing time over the next week or two, as the good times could be coming to an end. Abraham Almonte is starting in left field and hitting eighth Wednesday.
