Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis is working with hitting coach Jim Presley as he tries to break out of a 10-for-80 slump that has dropped his average to .205 on the year. Davis explained that his hitting woes aren't related to teams employing a shift against him, since they did that last year also. As part of his hitting session Wednesday, July 2, a tee was placed on the outer half of the plate.
Fantasy Tip: Davis' 2013 outburst was a statistical outlier. He still has plenty of power, but he won't buoy you in batting average.
