Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis will receive playing time in right field during spring training, according to manager Buck Showalter.
Fantasy Tip: Davis' 2014 showing may drive his fantasy stock into profit territory during drafts this spring. He launched 26 round trippers in an otherwise horrible season, so don't let him fall too far into the middle rounds on draft day. His 2012 numbers (75 runs, 33 home runs, 85 RBIs, .270/.326/.501 slash line) are likely his ceiling.

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis plans to change his approach at the plate, after finishing the 2014 season hitting just .196. He is considering bunting more often in order to take advantage of opponents increasingly using the shift against him. "There were times last year when I did lay a bunt down, but for me it's really a comfort thing," Davis said during a radio interview with 105.3 The Fan. "It's different going out there and working off a machine or even a BP arm and laying balls down the third base line and going into a game and doing it. For me, it was just a comfort thing and I have worked on it this offseason. I've probably worked on it more this offseason than I have in the past. If it's a one-run game, I'm probably not going to lay one down, but there are situations where unselfishly it's probably the best thing to do. It's definitely a weapon I can use against other teams."
