It doesnt look good for Chris Davis

It doesnt look good for Chris Davis

Jul 23, 2014; Anaheim, CA, USA; Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman (30) gets out of the way as first baseman Chris Davis (19) scrambles to take the throw from second baseman Jonathan Schoop (6) to get Los Angeles Angels right fielder Efren Navarro (19) out at first base in the sixth inning of the game at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

In 2018,A Chris DavisA was just the worst. Not in a double-decker couch sense - which unlikeA Davisa€™ performance is a great way to make friends - but literally the worst full-time player in baseball, and possibly the worst ever. You have to give credit to theA OriolesA for rolling him out there every day and giving him the chance to set a record, and it worked out forA Davis. His -2.8 rWAR is the lowest since 1871 among those with at least 100 plate appearances. A legendary season.

This is a far cry from 2015, whenA DavisA posted a 5.3 rWAR (5.4 fWAR) season with a 149 wRC+ and knocking 47 home runs. even the year afterward he was at least effective, a 116 wRC+ and 2.6 rWAR (2.8 fWAR) giving the Oa€™s offense a bit of a boost. Certainly not ideal for the first year of a 7 year, $161 million deal.

The Orioles are on the hook for a ton of cash still, and just now entering a rebuild period. If he holds to what hea€™s been, hea€™ll at least help with their tanking for draft picks. The ideal would be he does improve though, and at least become tradeable for some asset. Problem is, age doesna€™t go backwards. Too many markers are trending the wrong way
