Chris Davis went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss and is 3-for-18 over his last six games.

Davis already had 30 homers by this time last year, so it's rather disappointing to see him stuck on one through 55 at-bats. Still, it's not a major concern just yet. Even after his recent slump, he's still batting .255, and there's no doubt the homers will come soon enough.

Chris Davis hit his first home run of the season in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

The homer was Davis' only hit in three at-bats in the game. After blasting 53 home runs a year ago, the first baseman needed 12 games to put one over the boards this season. He's one of the most powerful hitters in the game, so he's still a good bet to finish near the league lead by the time it's all said and done.

Steve Melewski of MASN Sports reports that the Orioles have yet to have advanced talks with Chris Davis regarding a long-term contract extension.

Davis is admittedly happy that he was able to avoid arbitration and agree to a deal with the team over the winter, and both sides appear to have interest in getting an extension worked out. He still has two season to go before hitting free agency, so there isn't urgency to get a deal done.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette confirmed Saturday that the team attempted to sign Chris Davis to a contract extension but were unable to get a deal done.

Instead, the two sides agreed to a one-year contract earlier in the month to avoid heading to arbitration. Duquette notes that the team will certainly try again to lock their preeminent slugger long-term, as he's not set to reach free agency for another two seasons.

Orioles avoided arbitration with 1B Chris Davis by agreeing to a one-year, $10.35 million contract.

Davis receives a bump in salary of over $7 million in his second year of arbitration eligibility. Of course, he earned every penny of it by mashing 53 homers and driving in 138 runs in 2013. "Crush" should be a fantasy stud again in 2014.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette announced that Baltimore will tender contract offers to all nine of its arbitration-eligible players.

"We are planning on tendering those guys," Duquette said. "Most of the guys we have there are real good players." Baltimore's nine arbitration-eligible players are: catcher Matt Wieters, first baseman Chris Davis, outfielders Nolan Reimold and Steve Pearce, relievers Troy Patton, Brian Matusz, Tommy Hunter and Jim Johnson and starter Bud Norris. Reimold and Pearce, particularly, were non-tender candidates. Duquette said Reimold was progressing well from a neck/spine condition that required multiple surgeries.

Chris Davis has been diagnosed with a sprained left wrist.

Davis suffered the injury in the fourth inning Sunday when Jacoby Ellsbury clipped the first baseman's glove hand while beating out an infield single. He was able to move the wrist around before leaving, indicating that the ailment probably isn't too serious. However, he'll surely undergo some tests just to be safe.
