Davis is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Friday's absence will mark Davis' fourth in the team's last six games. The 35-year-old ranks second in the American League in stolen bases with 24 and he's already set a career high with nine home runs, but Tyler Naquin's emergence may lead to more days off for the veteran down the stretch.

Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Davis is sitting out for the second time in three games this series, and it only looks as though his playing time will begin to grow more scarce from here. With Tyler Naquin and Lonnie Chisenhall both owning on-base percentages over .340 for the season and star outfielder Michael Brantley (shoulder) closing in on a return from the DL, Davis may have to settle for only a couple starts per week.R

Davis is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis will take a seat after starting seven straight games for manager Terry Francona, giving way to Jose Ramirez in left field. The 35-year-old is just starting to head up again heading into the Midsummer Classic, as he owns a 1.142 OPS over that seven-game stretch.

Davis hit for the cycle despite the Indians seeing their 14-game winning streak snapped Saturday, going 4-for-5 with a two RBI, two runs and a stolen base.

EDGE Analysis

It was a banner afternoon that ironically came on a day when the Indians' memorable streak came to an end. Davis became only the eighth player in franchise history to hit for the cycle, leading off the game with a homer, and then tripling, doubling and singling in subsequent at-bats. The 35-year-old now has three multi-hit outings over his last four, going 8-for-19 with three doubles, two homers and three RBI over that span.

Davis went 2-for-4 with a home run and scored twice in Thursday's 4-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

After hitting his eighth homer of the season, the center fielder added his 13th double of the year in the ninth inning. Davis put the cherry on top of June with Thursday's performance. He finished the month with a .313 average, raising his season's average to .271, its highest mark since May 5. The 11th-year veteran is rolling right now, and owners shouldn't miss this opportunity to slot him into the lineup.

Davis isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Davis will sit in favor of left-handed hitter Tyler Naquin facing righty-starter Matt Wisler. Naquin, a rookie, has been hitting well against right-handed pitching, slashing .324/.372/.590 over 105 at-bats in 2016. Davis could lose more playing time against right-handed starters if Naquin continues his tear against them.

Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Davis started in the first two games of the series with his former team, going 3-for-8 with an RBI. The 35-year-old isn't in a hard platoon, but he'll still be asked to sit a few times a week with rookie Tyler Naquin proving himself as an equally capable option in the outfield.

Davis is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Davis collected five hits and a trio of steals over the last two games since receiving his last day off, but he'll be held out of the lineup Tuesday with the left-handed Blake Snell set to take the hill for the Rays. Taylor Naquin will get another start in center field in his place and bat ninth.

Davis went 4-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and two steals in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Amazingly both his steals were of third base and came after the doubles, as the veteran speedster tormented young pitcher Carlos Rodon on the basepaths. Davis now has 20 stolen bases on the year and is on pace for 47, which would be his highest total since he swiped 50 with the A's in 2010.

Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, his sixth, in Monday's win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Davis is now just two home runs away from tying his mark from each of the past two years, both seasons in which he appeared in at least 100 games. His power has historically come more in the form of doubles and triples than home runs, and that's probably what we should expect going forward. Still, Davis has an excellent chance to reach double-digit home runs for the first time in his career, and with 12 steals already as well, he has been a surprisingly valuable fantasy asset out of Cleveland's outfield.
