Khris Davis not giving up on MLB return

It has been years since Khris Davis has been a viable major league option. The one time feared slugger for the Oakland A’s was not the same after crashing into a fence while chasing a foul ball in 2019. His power disappeared and Davis just seemed lost ever since.

Khris Davis hoping to resurrect career with Diablos Rojos del Mexico

It has been a long way down for Khris Davis. Once one of the more fearsome sluggers in the game, Davis had fallen off dramatically since 2018. He had been traded by the Oakland A’s to Texas as part of a swap of bad contracts, only for the Rangers to release him due to his lack of production. Although he ended up back in the A’s organization on a minor league deal, eventually returning to the majors, he just was not the same player.

2021 Year in Review: Khris Davis

With the 2021 season coming to a close, we are going to look back at the year that was for members of the Texas Rangers. The season isn’t over yet, of course, but there are a number of players who are on the injured list or otherwise won’t be playing the rest of the way, so we can start by looking at those guys whose seasons are done, and once the season is over we can include guys who are still in action.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Sitting Tuesday

Davis is not starting Tuesday against the Mariners, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Davis has been Oakland's primary DH against lefty starters since joining the major-league roster in early September, but he'll take a seat against southpaw Tyler Anderson on Tuesday. Yan Gomes will serve as the designated hitter as Sean Murphy catches for Chris Bassitt.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Continues producing Monday

Davis went 1-for-2 with an RBI double in a loss to the Mariners on Monday. The timely two-bagger plated Chad Pinder in the third inning for Oakland's first run of the night and helped push Davis' slash line over the last eight games to an impressive .353/.389/.471. The slugger has only logged 18 plate appearances over that span, but he's been making more contact than usual while striking out at a modest 16.7 percent clip in the sample. Davis has a solid .290 average overall across the 13 games he's seen action in during his current A's stint, although he's yet to leave the yard.

Khris Davis goes 2-for-3 in first game back with A’s

Seven months ago, the Oakland A’s traded away Khris Davis. But he returned this week, and Thursday afternoon he played his first game back with his old team. Davis left a powerful mark on the A’s during his first stint here. He ranks eighth in Oakland history in homers, including three straight years with 40 or more, and twice Athletics Nation voted him Team MVP. There was a time when he was the club’s biggest star, so seeing him back in a green-and-gold uniform (now wearing jersey No. 11) was exciting on its own.

A’s win a nail-biter to claim series against Tigers; Khris Davis gets two hits

In an ideal world for the A’s, Frankie Montas gets the third out in the seventh inning. Not only would that have secured Montas’ third straight seven-inning start at a time when Oakland’s rotation is collectively struggling to notch quality innings, but it could have prevented a sequence that required manager Bob Melvin to use his over-taxed, high-leverage bullpen arms in a game that could have been a laugher.
