Orioles’ Chris Davis predicting bounceback season

Chris Davis

The Baltimore Orioles signed Chris Davis to a seven-year, $161 million deal prior to the 2016 season, and ever since then his statistics have been on a downward slide.

Davis, however, believes that he can still be the player the Orioles invested in, and at the start of spring training, he feels like he’s found his swing again.

Davis never hit for an exceptionally high average, but he was a safe bet for 30 home runs at a minimum and hit 53 in 2013. In 2018, not only did he only hit .168, but he hit just 16 home runs, the worst power numbers of his career. That was enough to get him benched at one point.

This is a lot of early spring optimism at play. Davis turns 33 in March, and while it’s not impossible that he’s suddenly going to become a 40-homer guy again, it’s probably very unlikely.
