Khris Davis 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Who's the only player to hit over 40 Home Runs in both of the past 2 MLB seasons? Khris Davis. The often overlooked power source is looking to make it 3 years in a row. I see no reason why he shouldn't come close to hitting 40 Homers again... Thoughts?

I feel he should get close to that number as well. He’s an aggressive swinger so his average will be around .250 which won’t hurt too badly especially when he’s providing that kind of power.

This guy certainly scares me but the risk is built into his price. I’m just afraid he could implode like Todd Frazier and have a 200 average because of those K numbers.

 

He improved his walk rate at least. We could get lucky this year and see his average go up to .260. A stretch, I know, but I still believe he will be a very reliable OF2 or OF3.

Unless he has a really bad luck with his BABIP, I'm not worried about the AVG.

It's kind of mind-boggling how this guy can be underrated after what he's done the past couple of seasons. 42.5 HRs per season in a pitcher's park, just turned 30 y.o. and average has hovered around .250 which, while not great, won't kill you.

 

Sounds obvious, but there is a substantial difference between 30-32 HRs and 42.5 This guy is a STUD.

There's also a substantial difference between .250 and .300.  Add in a lack of bags and a below average Offense with the A's

Yes, so please share with us the long list of .300 avg hitters with 40 HRs. Last year there was exactly ONE. JD Martinez. But perhaps you can show us that they're more plentiful. Awaiting your reply.

I mean, yea, but you're not really drafting him over .300 hitters with 30+ HRs.  I don't think anyone's arguing you take him over JD Martinez or Freddie Freeman.

 

And he still drove in 110 & scored 91 in that lousy As lineup.

Any chance he can get his avg our or is he a lock for .240ish?

 

I'll look into my magic ball and get back to you....

 

In all seriousness, this seems to be who he is. He did increase his walk rate last year. He could still mature further as a hitter and up his avg. a little.

12 HR's, tied for 2nd, and 36 RBI, also tied for 2nd. BA is only .214, but I'll gladly take a player who carries a team in HR's and RBI's at a 7-9th round price tag. 

Right on cue today, 3/3 with 1 HR and 2 RBI's
