Davis started in right field Wednesday and went 2-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 10-7 win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Davis filled in for the injured Mookie Betts (wrist) on Wednesday after Chris Young started in right Tuesday night. Betts was available as a pinch hitter Wednesday, suggesting a return to the lineup is imminent. Until Betts is ready, you can expect Davis to start against right-handers and Young against lefties. The Red Sox will face Houston right-hander Brad Peacock on Thursday, so it could be a night for Davis.

Davis went 2-for-4 with a pair of steals and a pair of runs scored against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The swipes were his first since being traded to the Red Sox last week. Davis is seeing only spotty playing time in his new digs, and his usage will diminish further when Jackie Bradley (thumb) returns from the DL, which could happen as soon as this weekend. That reality doesn't offer much upside for fantasy purposes, though the speedster may see a good amount of pinch-running duty in September.

Davis was traded to the Red Sox in exchange for minor-league outfielder Rafael Rincones, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackie Bradley (thumb) is on the shelf with a thumb issue, so the Red Sox decided to bring in Davis to man center field in his absence. Davis has stepped it up recently after a slow start to the season, slashing .303/.361/.487 with 11 steals in 30 games since the All-Star break. He'll likely return to the bench when Bradley returns from the DL, but he'll still offer speed and a veteran bat off the bench for the Red Sox. The hope is that Davis will join the team in Cleveland on Thursday.

Davis is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles, Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jaycob Brugman was recently optioned down, but it doesn't look like that will result in Davis seeing more playing time, as Boog Powell seems to have taken over the large side of the platoon in center. Davis started Friday against a right-hander, but only after Powell was scratched due to illness.

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

EDGE Analysis

Jaycob Brugman will return to center field following back-to-back starts against lefties by Davis to close out the Giants series. The center-field platoon seems fairly well established at this point, with Davis starting almost exclusively against southpaws. Lefty Tyler Skaggs is due up for the Angels on Saturday.

Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 11-2 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Davis' eighth-inning blast was the most notable highlight on a forgettable night overall for the Oakland offense. The veteran outfielder's .232/.292/.358 line leaves plenty to be desired, but he's now hit safely in four of the last five games, a stretch in which he's also socked two of his five round trippers on the season.

Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davis ignited the Athletics on Saturday with a 4-for-5 showing that included a double and a home run, but it doesn't look like it will change his standing as a part-time player. Now that Jaycob Brugman has recovered from a neck injury, he looks poised to handle the larger side of a platoon with Davis in center field.

Davis will start in center field and bat ninth Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Davis will make his third consecutive start and second straight against right-handed pitching with Jaycob Brugman (neck) hurting. The Athletics are still labeling Brugman as day-to-day, so assuming he shows enough improvement to avoid a DL stint, Davis' run of regular playing time could be short lived. Davis should still remain a fixture in the lineup against left-handed pitching once Brugman is healthy.

Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

After picking up starts in five of the Athletics' first seven games out of the All-Star break, Davis will ride the bench for the second straight contest with rookie Jaycob Brugman manning center field. It's expected that Brugman will see most of the reps at the position in the second half as the Athletics evaluate their younger talent, but Davis should at least stick in the lineup against left-handed pitching.

Davis went 2-for-3 with with two walks, a stolen base and two runs in Friday's 7-5 loss to the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder was the embodiment of a top-of-the-order disruptor, setting up a pair of RBI opportunities for Marcus Semien while generating his third straight two-hit effort. Davis seems to have rediscovered his stroke at the plate in July, as he's already raised his average 19 points to .232 partly on the strength of five multi-hit efforts.
