Davis (oblique) received a platelet rich plasma injection Tuesday in an attempt to help speed up his recovery, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis, who has been on the disabled list since June 14 with an oblique strain, is hoping he'll now be able to return sometime before the All-Star break. There still has been no word of him resuming baseball activities, so he'll remain without a firm timetable until he is able to do so. Trey Mancini should continue to fill in at first base while Davis is sidelined.

Manager Buck Showalter said Saturday that Davis (oblique) is unlikely to return in the next three weeks, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Showalter's comments, it appears that Davis' absence could extend into the All-Star break. According to Kubatko, Davis will be shut down for at least a week before potentially resuming light baseball activities. Trey Mancini, who is slashing .303/.347/.549, figures to be the Orioles' regular first baseman until Davis is ready to return.

Davis (oblique) landed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

After Davis was diagnosed with a Grade 1 right oblique strain following Monday's game against the White Sox, manager Buck Showalter suggested the first baseman would likely miss multiple weeks, so the DL move was fully expected. The Orioles purchased the contract of David Washington from Triple-A Norfolk to provide another option at first base, but it's expected that Trey Mancini and Mark Trumbo will see most of the reps at the position while Davis is sidelined.

Manager Buck Showalter said Davis has a Grade 1 oblique strain and is probably going to need time on the disabled list, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Davis was diagnosed with the most mild form of a strain, oblique injuries tend to keep players out for an extended period of time. "I think I know it's potentially on the shorter side, but what's short," Showalter said when asked about a possible return date. "A month instead of two months?" At this point it's pretty unclear how long the injury will keep Davis sidelined, but more should be known once he gets back to Baltimore on Tuesday night and is further evaluated.

Davis (oblique) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The results of Davis' MRI results have not been disclosed yet, but given the fact that he's been diagnosed with a strained oblique certainly does not bode well for him. Trey Mancini will pick up a start at first base in his place, which could become the norm while Davis is sidelined.

Davis (oblique) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, but manager Buck Showalter suggested it isn't looking good, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis didn't want to talk about the oblique injury, which is definitely not a good sign. The initial diagnosis right now is a strained oblique. The MRI will determine the severity, and Davis could miss multiple months if it proves to be a high grade strain.

Davis left Monday's game with a right oblique strain, Rick Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis went 0-for-2 prior to exiting the game. The severity of the strain is uncertain, and thus the 31-year-old should be considered day-to-day for the time being, but this is the type of injury that typically threatens to push a player to the DL. Trey Mancini would presumably see the bulk of the work at first base in Davis' absence.

Davis is playing third base Thursday against the Nationals, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Manny Machado (wrist) sitting out and the game being played in a national league park, Davis will man the hot corner for the first time since 2014. This likely will only occur while the Orioles are in Washington for the night given that the team will head back to an American League park Friday, but in leagues with extra lenient positional eligibility rules, this could bolster the slugger's already solid value.

Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs in Tuesday's win over Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Davis is riding a modest seven-game hitting streak, amassing three bombs, seven RBI and five runs in the process. The slugger's strikeouts continue to be an issue, though, as he went down swinging again on Tuesday. Davis' 88 punch outs are most in MLB.

Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Thursday's win against Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Davis' second home run in as many games pushed his total to 12 on the season, putting him on pace to challenge 40 home runs. Unfortunately, his blasts haven't resulted in many RBI thus far. He's got just 22 RBI, putting him at risk of failing to reach 70 RBI for the first time since becoming a full-time Oriole in 2012.
