Jose Canseco offers his help to struggling Chris Davis
Jose Canseco has offered to help Chris Davis return to the form that once helped him finish third American League MVP voting.
Last season, Chris Davis struggled through a disappointing year that saw him post a .168 batting average in 128 games. Things got so bad the Baltimore Orioles benched the struggling first baseman indefinitely.
Although it’s a new season, the same struggles remain for Davis. On Tuesday, he reached an unwanted milestone by going hitless in 47 consecutive at-bats, dating back to last year.

In the wake of his struggles, former MLB slugger Jose Canseco reached out via Twitter to offer Davis help to regain his good form.
Chris Davis from the Baltimore Orioles let me help you with your swing and get back to that 50 Home Run play I told you where at also need to help you with the psychology of the game the psychology of a power hitter

Davis has reportedly tried seemingly everything to right the ship over the past two seasons. Who are we to rule out Canseco being able to help the two-time AL home run king?
