    Advice: Davis gave the Orioles a 3-0 lead in the first inning when he took Jesse Chavez yard with a pair of ducks on the pond.

    Advice: Seager hit the first of back-to-back home runs with Nelson Cruz. He also scored runs in the first and seventh innings. The third baseman had been in a slump, batting .133 (4-for-30) in his previous seven games. Seager's numbers on the season are solid, hitting .270/.329/.447 with 16 home runs and 44 RBI.

  • Lonnie Chisenhall departs with whiplash
    Lonnie Chisenhall left Monday's game against the Angels due to a cervical strain.

    Advice: It's a fancy way of saying he had whiplash, which he suffered after making a diving attempt in right field. Consider Chisenhall day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Beltre hits for the cycle, Rangers top Astros
    Adrian Beltre hit for the cycle, going 4-for-5 as the Rangers fended off the Astros on Monday.

    Advice: Beltre achieved the cycle in his first four at-bats. He hit a two-run triple and later scored as part of a six-run first inning. Then he doubled in the second inning, singled and scored in the third, and drilled a solo home run in the fifth to complete the cycle. It's the third time in his career he's hit for the cycle. Beltre's OPS is back above .700 for the first time since the end of May. He's hitting .270/.312/.417 with nine home runs and 30 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Solarte's 2 HR, 4 RBI power Padres to a win
    Yangervis Solarte hit two home runs, knocked in four runs, and drew a walk in five plate appearances in Monday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Solarte put the Padres on the board early with a first-inning solo home run against Wily Peralta. He added a three-run home run to cap off a six-run seventh inning. The third baseman is on a nine-game hitting streak, the most recent four of which have included multiple hits. Solarte owns a productive .266/.319/.418 batting line with seven home runs and 40 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:30 pm
  • Garcia beats Giants with walk-off 2-run homer
    Adonis Garcia sent the Braves home happy with a walk-off two-run home run in the 12th inning against the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: The Braves had fallen behind 8-7 in the top half of the frame, but Garcia played hero when he drilled a two-run shot to right-center against Ryan Vogelsong. He finished 2-for-6 on the night with a double along with the homer. In 11 games in the majors this season, he has nine hits in 40 plate appearances. Six of those nine hits are extra-base hits (three doubles, three homers). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 pm

  • Josh Donaldson hits 27th home run of season
    Josh Donaldson went 2-for-4 with a home run Monday in the Blue Jays' victory over the Twins.

    Advice: Donaldson doubled in the bottom of the first inning and then cranked a two-run shot off Twins starter Ervin Santana in the bottom of the fifth. The 29-year-old third baseman is sporting a tremendous .916 OPS with 27 home runs and 77 RBI in 105 games this season for the Blue Jays, who are now tied with Minnesota for the second American League Wild Card spot.

  • Kris Bryant (head) in Cubs' lineup on Monday
    Kris Bryant (head) is in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday night against the Pirates.

  • Athletics pick up Danny Valencia off waivers
    Athletics claimed INF/OF Danny Valencia off waivers from the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Valencia was designated for assignment by Toronto in a somewhat surprising move after the July 31 trade deadline. He's having a very good season and drew interest from a range of teams (including the White Sox, Rangers, and Orioles) on the waiver wire. The 30-year-old probably isn't going to carry a ton of fantasy value in Oakland. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:06 pm

  • Rays promote Richie Shaffer from AAA level
    Rays purchased the contract of 1B/3B Richie Shaffer from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Shaffer has hit .265/.359/595 with 16 home runs in 55 games this season at the Triple-A level. He was the 25th overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft and could slide his way into semi-regular playing time if things go well out of the gate. The 24-year-old should be on fantasy watch lists. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:30 am
  • Sandoval (forearm) served as pinch-hitter
    Pablo Sandoval (forearm) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Sandoval hasn't started a game since taking a pitch off his left forearm last Thursday evening. He just has a bruise and should be good to go this week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:11 am
  • Anthony Rendon clubs first homer in loss
    Anthony Rendon clubbed his first home run of the season as the Nationals fell to the Mets on Sunday night in New York.

    Advice: Rendon got the Nationals on the board with a solo homer in the first inning off Noah Syndergaard. He also added a pair of singles in the contest, finishing the night 3-for-4 to raise his season slash to .286/.363/.388. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:54 pm

  • ChiSox, Rangers, O's interested in Valencia
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the White Sox, Rangers and Orioles have emerged as the most likely destinations for Danny Valencia.

    Advice: In a bit of a surprise move, Valencia was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Saturday. He is expected to be claimed off trade waivers on Monday, which will give the Jays an opportunity to deal him. Valencia is having a terrific season, slashing .296/.331/.506 with seven long balls and 29 RBI in his 162 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:16 pm

  • Rays to call up Richie Shaffer on Monday
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays are expected to call up 1B/3B Richie Shaffer on Monday.

    Advice: He's expected to take the roster spot of Matt Moore who will be optioned to Triple-A Durham. The 24-year-old is hitting .261/.357/.538 with 23 homers and 59 RBI in 93 games between Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham. He'll be counted on to add some much-needed punch to the Rays offense. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:18 pm
  • Kris Bryant to be re-evaluated on Monday
    Kris Bryant exited Sunday's game against the Brewers as a precautionary measure due to dizziness.

    Advice: Bryant injured himself when sliding headfirst into second base. He went through the concussion protocol without any issues and will be re-evaluated on Monday. He's considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:52 pm
  • Lamb doubles twice in losing effort
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Lamb doubled home a run against Astros starter Collin McHugh in the second inning. The Diamondbacks wouldn't score again in the game, though, as they fell by a score of 4-1. For the season, the Snakes' third baseman is hitting .279/.340/.425 with three homers and 24 RBI across 179 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:34 pm

  • Peterson's 3-run homer downs the Phillies
    Jace Peterson went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run, striking the big blow to defeat the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Peterson broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning when he belted an Adam Morgan offering to right field in the fifth inning. His effort helped the Braves avoid a four-game series sweep in Philadelphia. The second baseman isn't normally one for power, as he's batting .245/.322/.343 with 44 RBI and only four home runs.

  • Davis provides Orioles' only offense with HR
    Chris Davis went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Davis provided the only blemish on the afternoon for the Tigers' young lefty Daniel Norris, homering in the fourth inning. The 1B/OF has matched last year's home run total at 26, and has also knocked in 72 runs while hitting .245/.327/.504. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:18 pm

  • Amarista socks homer to tie MIA in ninth
    Alexi Amarista went 2-for-4 with a triple and a game-tying two-run home run in the ninth inning of Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Amarista's triple is notable for the fact that it was the only extra-base hit allowed by Marlins starter Jose Fernandez. After Fernandez left the game, the Padres looked dead in the water until the ninth inning, when Amarista struck like lightning, belting a two-run homer off reliever A.J. Ramos with one out to tie the proceedings at two-all. The big offensive showing is all the more surprising for the fact that Amarista was dealing with an 0-for-24 skid prior to his triple. He's batting just .201/.267/.293 with three home runs and 23 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:32 pm

  • Kris Bryant leaves game with head/neck injury
    Kris Bryant left Sunday's game against the Brewers with an apparent injury to his head/neck area.

    Advice: Bryant injured himself on a head-first slide into second base. He was able to walk off the field under his own power and looked to be OK, so perhaps the Cubs were just being cautious here. They should offer more on the third baseman's status later Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:55 pm
  • Cory Spangenberg (knee) ready for rehab
    Cory Spangenberg (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A San Antonio on Monday.

  • Mike Moustakas nursing sore knee
    Mike Moustakas is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday due to a sore knee.

    Advice: He was hit by a pitch in the knee on Saturday. Moose is expected to be fine, but the club wanted to give him a little rest just to be safe. Cheslor Cuthbert will start in Moustakas' place at third base. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:43 am
  • Pablo Sandoval (forearm) out again Sunday
    Pablo Sandoval (forearm) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since being hit on the left forearm by a pitch on Thursday. Sandoval remains day-to-day and should have a shot to return Tuesday after Monday's off day. Travis Shaw is at third base Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:06 am
  • Marcus Semien homers, walks against Indians
    Marcus Semien homered, walked and scored twice against the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Semien has more errors (29) than RBI (23) or walks (25) this year, yet he still has an OPS (.670) right at the league average for shortstops. It's about as weird of a bad season as one could dream up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:52 pm

  • Lonnie Chisenhall homers for Indians
    Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the Indians' only run Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: Chisenhall is 4-for-11 in three games since returning to the majors Thursday. Since he's likely to keep on starting in the outfield against righties, he should be a nice AL-only option the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:48 pm
  • Kang cracks solo home run in loss to Reds
    Jung Ho Kang went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Kang took a Raisel Iglesias offering for a ride with two outs and nobody on in the fourth inning. The homer was his eighth of the season. He hit a blistering .379/.443/.621 in July, a triple-slash that was buoyed by 13 extra-base hits over the course of the month. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:52 pm

  • Manny Machado homers for second straight game
    Manny Machado homered for the second game in a row Saturday in a win over the Tigers.

    Advice: He's hit .381 with four RBI over his five-game hitting streak. Among big league third basemen, Machado is fourth in slugging percentage (.525) and second in OPS (.890). The 23-year-old has emerged as a legitimate MVP candidate and is a big reason why the Orioles are only a half-game behind Minnesota in the AL Wild Card Race. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:56 pm
  • Jake Lamb getting the day off Saturday
    Jake Lamb is not in the Diamonbacks' starting lineup Saturday against the Astros.

    Advice: It's a routine day off for Lamb. Aaron Hill will grab the start at third base. Lamb has hit .248 since coming off the disabled list in early June. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:04 pm

  • Mike Moustakas not in Royals lineup Saturday
    Mike Moustakas is not in the Royals starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Ned Yost will use the matchup against opposing southpaw Mark Buehrle to give his third baseman a day of rest. Cheslor Cuthbert will start in his place at the hot corner and bat eighth for the Royals on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:23 am
  • Jays designate Danny Valencia for assignment
    Blue Jays designated INF/OF Danny Valencia for assignment.

    Advice: With all of the recent acquisitions that the Blue Jays have made, they were forced to make a few tough decisions on their roster and it appears that Valencia is the odd-man out. The lefty-masher was hitting .296/.331/.506 overall with seven homers and 29 RBI in 162 at-bats. He should attract interest from plenty of teams looking to upgrade their bench.

  • Blue Jays recall Kawasaki from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled INF Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The 34-year-old infielder and fan favorite is hitting just .200/.294/.333 in 15 at-bats with the Blue Jays this season. He'll provide infield depth and flexibility while Devon Travis is on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:11 am
  • Twins activate Plouffe from paternity list
    Twins activated 3B Trevor Plouffe from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Plouffe had been away from the club since Wednesday to witness the birth of his child. He's enjoying a solid season, hitting .257/.316/.456 with 14 homers and 55 RBI in 95 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:34 am
  • Lonnie Chisenhall goes 3-for-4, doubles
    Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

    Advice: Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. Ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:05 am
  • Matt Carpenter homers, doubles in win
    Matt Carpenter had another strong game from the leadoff spot Friday, going 2-for-4 with a homer, a double and a walk against the Rockies.

    Advice: With the way it's worked out the last two days, it looks like we'll be seeing Carpenter batting first and Kolten Wong hitting third for the foreseeable future. It should help the fantasy value of both. Wong went 2-fo-r5 with two runs scored and an RBI tonight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:37 pm
  • Beltre smacks two-run shot vs. Giants
    Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the Giants.

    Advice: Beltre's two-run shot off Madison Bumgarner gave the Rangers the lead in the bottom of the first inning and they never looked back. It was just his second home run in 32 games since returning from his thumb injury. He recently admitted that he's not getting better, so expectations should be tempered for him the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:52 pm
  • Escobar has RBI single in loss to Mets
    Yunel Escobar drove in the Nationals' only run of the night Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: His eighth-inning single off Matt Harvey tied the game, but the Mets eventually won in extras. Escobar went 1-for-5 on the night and has a .312/.360/.410 batting line on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:02 pm

  • Donaldson has four RBI, including walk-off
    Josh Donaldson drove in four runs in Friday's 7-6 win over the Royals, including a walk-off RBI single in the 11th.

    Advice: Donaldson had a two-run double in the third inning before knocking in another run with a double in the seventh. The game-winning rally in the 11th was set up after Troy Tulowitzki reached on a one-out single and moved over to second base on a balk by Franklin Morales. Donaldson then laced a single to left field to end it. The 29-year-old continues to have a monster year, batting .295/.358/.550 with 25 homers and 73 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:46 pm
  • Manny Machado powers Orioles past Tigers
    Manny Machado blasted his 22nd home run of the season on Friday, powering the Orioles to a come-from-behind 8-7 victory over the Tigers.

    Advice: The Orioles fell behind 6-0 after the first four innings, but never gave up. Adam Jones clobbered a three-run homer in the fifth inning to cut the deficit to two runs, then Machado's two-run shot in the sixth put the O's on top to stay. Machado finished the night 2-for-3 plus a walk with a pair of runs scored and two RBI. He is now slashing a mighty impressive .293/.364/.518 with 22 homers and 54 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:52 pm
  • Kang has three hits in win over Reds
    Jung Ho Kang went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Kang had two doubles on the night. He continues to swing and incredibly hot bat, hitting .435 (27-for-62) over his last 17 games. His batting average is now up to .299 on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:30 pm

  • Pablo Sandoval (forearm) not in lineup
    Pablo Sandoval (forearm) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Sandoval was hit on the left forearm by a pitch on Thursday. He merely has a bruise and should be fine in a day or two. Josh Rutledge is filling in at third base. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:22 pm
  • Matt Carpenter homers twice, scores four runs
    Moved back into the leadoff spot, Matt Carpenter went 4-for-5 with two homers, a double and four runs scored in the Cardinals' 9-8 win over the Rockies on Thursday.

    Advice: The Cardinals scored three in the bottom of the ninth to win it, with a Greg Garcia bases-loaded walk ending the game. Carpenter turned in far and away his best game since April. He hadn't had even three hits since May 22. The Cards will probably keep him in the leadoff spot for now, but that might not be bad news for Kolten Wong; Wong hit third with Matt Holliday out tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:30 pm
  • Josh Donaldson hits 25th homer in victory
    Josh Donaldson collected his 25th homer and his 26th double as the Jays beat the Royals 5-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: Donaldson has four homers in 12 games since the All-Star break. Mike Trout might end up running away from the crowd in the AL MVP race, but it'll be a surprise if Donaldson isn't in the top three or five when all is said and done. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:49 pm
  • Chris Davis homers, knocks in four runs
    Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, four RBI and a walk Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Davis has six homers in 13 games since the All-Star break and 25 overall. It's not nearly the same kind of season he had in 2013, not with his .244 average, but it's is a big improvement on what he did last year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:28 pm

  • Sandoval diagnosed with forearm contusion
    Pablo Sandoval is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a left forearm contusion.

    Advice: Sandoval was forced to leave Thursday's contest against the White Sox after being hit by a pitch. It appears as though he didn't sustain any structural damage though and should be ready to return to the lineup at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:53 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval leaves after hit by pitch
    Pablo Sandoval was removed from Thursday's game against the White Sox after being hit in the wrist/forearm area by a Chris Sale pitch.

    Advice: Sandoval actually struck out swinging at the pitch, literally adding insult to injury. He'll presumably head for X-rays to rule out any fractures. The Red Sox should have an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:17 pm
  • Indians recall Lonnie Chisenhall from AAA
    Indians recalled INF Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: With Brandon Moss shipped out of town, Chisenhall could see some action in the corner outfield, where he had been working in the minors. Unless he finds everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:00 pm
  • Plouffe not expected back until Saturday

  • Farrell admits Sandoval's weight is an issue
    Red Sox manager John Farrell acknowledged Wednesday that Pablo Sandoval's weight is an issue.

    Advice: It's the first time Farrell has addressed this topic since spring training, when he was in full support of Boston's new acquisition. The burly third baseman got thrown out at home on a ball he should have scored on Wednesday night against the White Sox and had to be lifted from the game two innings later due to dehydration. "There are ongoing efforts to support that, to try to get him in the best shape possible," said Farrell. "That's something Pablo has dealt with his entire career. It continues to be addressed." Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:37 am
  • Yangervis Solarte goes 4-for-5
    Yangervis Solarte finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored Wednesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Solarte is playing fairly regularly with Will Middlebrooks in the minors and Cory Spangenberg on the DH, and he's hit well this month, batting .284 with three homers in 74 at-bats. There's no mixed-league value here at all, but he's giving the Padres a lift. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:38 pm
  • Kang blasts game-winning homer against Twins
    Jung-Ho Kang went 2-for-4 with a game-winning home run as the Pirates outlasted the Twins 8-7 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kang was hit by a pitch and scored in the sixth inning and came up with the game tied in the top of the ninth. Against Twins closer Glen Perkins, Kang launched a solo homer to give the Pirates the lead and ultimately the win. The shortstop has seven multi-hit games in his last nine contests, raising his season line to .289/.367/.426 with six homers and 32 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:16 pm

  • Trevor Plouffe goes on paternity leave
    Twins placed 3B Trevor Plouffe on the paternity leave list.

  • Carpenter goes hitless, drops to .252 overall
    Matt Carpenter went hitless again Tuesday, dropping his average to .252 on the year.

    Advice: The third baseman went 0-for-4 and struck out twice against Reds starter Mike Leake, continuing his freefall since the end of May. Carpenter is now hitting .172 (15-for-87) with 19 strikeouts in July. He insists there's nothing physical going on, but there's certainly something wrong with the 29-year-old's swing right now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:08 pm
  • Sandoval hits eighth homer against White Sox
    Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Sandoval's two-run blast against White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija in the second inning was all the offense the Red Sox could muster until the ninth inning. The two-hit game was Sandoval's third in a row, raising his line to .263/.307/.382 with eight homers and 34 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:31 pm

He added a two-run shot in the second, with both blasts coming against Julio Teheran -- his only hits in four at-bats on the night. Davis is swinging a hot stick as he's homered five times in his last seven games, giving him 24 on the season with 65 RBI and a .243/.325/.497 line. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 pm

  • Bryant drills a walk-off 2-run homer vs. COL
    Kris Bryant delivered a walk-off two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to help the Cubs overtake the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Rafael Soriano blew the save in the top half of the ninth inning, allowing four runs to put the Cubs down 8-7. Kris Bryant picked up his teammate, victimizing Rockies closer John Axford for a two-run bomb to left-center. He hit an RBI single as part of a six-run fourth inning as well. The rookie has done well thus far, batting .254/.358/.453 with 14 home runs and 59 RBI. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:45 pm

  • Cards 'don't appear high' on O's Chris Davis
    According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Cardinals "don't appear to be high" on Chris Davis.

    Advice: St. Louis is known to be in search of an upgrade at first base, but the Cardinals' primary target seems to be the Brewers' Adam Lind. Crasnick says the Cards are "wary" of Davis' lofty strikeout totals, and it also probably helps that Lind carries a team-friendly option for 2016 whereas Davis is due to become a free agent.

    Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Lamb hit his triple off Brewers starter Matt Garza in the fourth inning. It was his fourth of the season. He also notched a double off Garza, his seventh.

  • Donaldson hits solo homer in loss to Mariners
    Josh Donaldson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 10-inning, 6-5 loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Donaldson launched the solo shot off Mariners starter Taijuan Walker in the first inning. It would be his only hit of the game, though he also knocked in a run with a sacrifice fly in the second. He's on the short-list of AL MVP candidates this season and is currently slashing .289/.351/.539 with 24 homers and 68 RBI. The slugger's even stolen three bases. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 4:55 pm
  • Plouffe knocks home run with single in ninth
    Trevor Plouffe went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Plouffe's RBI base knock off Yankees reliever Justin Wilson merely acted as cosmetic effect in the 7-2 loss. He's hitting .255/.315/.457 with 14 homers and 55 RBI and looks to be on his way to a 20+ homer season for the first time since 2012. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 2:24 pm
  • Anthony Rendon not in Sunday's lineup

  • Davis crushes grand slam in O's win
    Chris Davis launched a grand slam in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Davis unloaded on an Erasmo Ramirez offering with one out and the bases juiced in the third inning to give the Orioles a 4-0 lead. It was his 22nd homer of the season and pushed his RBI total to an even 60 on the year. The slugger has been in the zone of late, with three homers and two doubles in his last four games. That, on top of an ongoing eight-game hitting streak. He's currently hitting .242/.321/.487. On Friday, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reported that the Orioles were considering selling off some pieces at the trade deadline. Davis is one of those potential pieces, and with his recent hot stretch, he should draw interest as a rental from multiple teams if the team does, indeed, try to move him.
