Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter said 1B Chris Davis (oblique) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of his oblique injury. Showalter indicated Davis will need around two weeks to recover from the injury.
Fantasy Tip: It does not sound like Davis will miss much more than the 15 days he will need to stay on the disabled list, so owners can keep him on the bench or place him on their disabled lists. Ryan Flaherty, Steve Lombardozzi and Nick Markakis could be options to play first base while Davis is out and could be short-term options in AL-only leagues.
