Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Davis had started the last five games for the Orioles dating back to prior to the All-Star break, but will take a seat for the series finale with lefty J.A. Happ on the mound for the opposing Blue Jays. The month of July hasn't been kind to Davis, as he's mustered a .169 batting average, but that is still somehow an improvement from the prior three months.

Davis is not in Thursday's starting lineup against the Phillies, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis went 2-for-10 with a double and two walks over Baltimore's last series with the Yankees. He'll get the day off with Trey Mancini penciled into the lineup at first base.

Davis is not starting the afternoon portion of Monday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Davis has homered in his last two games and four of his last 11. His .209 batting average and .756 OPS over that stretch are unremarkable at best, though it qualifies as a hot streak for Davis in a season in which he has a .157 average and a .510 OPS. Trey Mancini gets the call at first base Monday.

Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Davis recorded his ninth home run of the season in the ninth inning off Matt Magill. He has shown some signs of life since regaining his role as an everyday player by hitting five home runs, -- though he has gone just for 11-for-61 -- since June 22.

Davis was 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's 5-4 loss at Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Davis has continued to struggle since the extended absence to help fix his swing in mid-June, and is only 10-for-57 over 14 games, although he does have four home runs in that stretch. The 32-year-old still has significant work to do on his .155/.229/.269 slash line before becoming a reliable option, though the Orioles are likely to continue providing him opportunities.

Manager Buck Showalter said Davis will probably return to the starting lineup Friday against the Braves, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis has been working out some kinks in his swing and hasn't played since June 11 as a result, but it sounds like the first baseman is finally ready to rejoin the lineup. The 32-year-old struggled mightily before being benched -- hitting just .150 with a 37.6 percent strikeout rate -- but the hope is that the time off, which he spent working with hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh, will help Davis get back on track at the dish. Davis still has a significant amount of money remaining on his contract, so the Orioles figure to give him ample chances to prove himself. He may not immediate reclaim a starting role, but Davis should eventually work his way back into the lineup on a regular basis, especially if he shows some offensive improvement.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that Davis could rejoin the Baltimore lineup at some point during the club's three-game series with the Nationals that begins Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

After hitting .150 with a 37.6 percent strikeout rate over his first 57 appearances of the season, Davis has been on the bench for the past five games while he looks to retool his swing. The first baseman has been working extensively with hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh and vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson in the batting cage prior to games, but it's unclear if those sessions have actually been productive for Davis. With more than $80 million remaining on Davis' contract, the Orioles aren't willing to give up on him just yet, so expect the slugger to gradually work his way back into the lineup whether he deserves it or not.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter confirmed Friday that Davis is unlikely to rejoin the lineup in the near future, ESPN.com reports. "Chris is continuing with some things that he's working on, and when they come to me and say they think he's ready to get back in the lineup, I'll put him back in there, but it's nothing imminent," Showalter said.

EDGE Analysis

With a .150/.227/.227 batting line and 24 wRC+ across 229 plate appearances this season, Davis has been the majors' worst-performing regular. The 32-year-old's standing as one of the game's top power hitters in recent years in addition to his $161 million contract had prompted the Orioles to act patiently with Davis in the hope that he would break out of his season-long funk, but with no recent evidence of progress from the slugger, Showalter has decided to explore other options at first base. Trey Mancini has picked up three of the last four starts at the position and will likely continue to log most of the action there until the Orioles feel Davis is ready to rejoin the lineup.

Davis is out of the lineup yet again Saturday against the Marlins, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis has missed four games in a row, though three of those (including Saturday's game) have come against southpaws. Davis' ugly .150/.227/.227 line has given the Orioles very little reason to keep him in the lineup even against righties, though, so it would hardly be surprising to see him on the bench more frequently going forward. Trey Mancini starts at first base Saturday.

Davis is not in the lineup against Miami on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis will remain on the bench for a third straight game while Corban Joseph gets a start at first base. It's no secret that Davis has been struggling mightily at the plate throughout the course of this season but this marks the first time all year that he will sit for more than a pair of consecutive games.
