DateQuestionAnswer
2019-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)12-team NL Scoresheet League: What is the value of Khris Davis (2 XO slots per team). I inherited him on a rebuilding team and was offered (roughly) R30 and R32 picks for him.
(Homer from Springfield)
Man, Khris might take a bigger hit than anyone in NL scoresheet. That defense...woof. I'd try to squeeze a little more, maybe 28-30, but I always try to do that. His value just takes a hit clogging up LF and an XO. (Mark Barry)
2018-12-12 17:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Franmil Reyes? If given the playing time, can he be a star?
(cracker73 from Florida)
I love the raw power. I don't know if he's going to be a star because I don't trust the contact abilities enough to predict more than a .250 AVG but if Khris Davis is the ceiling that ain't bad. (Mike Gianella)
2018-07-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can Brent Rooker be Khris Davis?
(Mark from Chicago)
Probably not. Looks like he has less power but would hit for similarly low averages in the bigs. (Scooter Hotz)
2018-06-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Khris Davis? Yay or nay moving forward?
(OAK fan from California)
Legit 40-homer guy. The lower average hurts, but with a low LD% and so lower BABIP, that's to be expected. His HR/FB is down (27% to 22%), as is his HHFB% (54% to 45%). But he put up a .247 average for three seasons, so give him a mulligan if he is below that in 2018. He still helps a lot in the three roto counting categories. (Kevin Jebens)
2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)Saw a Khris Davis comp for myself recently. Does that fit?
(Christin Stewart from Not-yet-Detroit)
Hmm. I don't hate it from a statline production standpoint though I don't think he'll be the OBP drag that Davis was for a bit there. I am also curious to see how this reduction in strikeouts continues to play out, because it's a fair explanation for the better batting average thus far this year (and encouraging that his walk rates have remained stable thus far). (Craig Goldstein)
2018-05-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Obviously, things like price and number of years are key, but if you were the A's, would you sign Khris Davis to an extension? Can the A's, or any team really, afford to have a full-time DH in the age of eight men bullpens?
(Eric from San Francisco)
I think you hit the nail on the head. Guys with his skillset did not do well this past winter. He's just not versatile enough, and for all his power he's still not really a true impact player. Would you rather have him or someone like Barretto or Mateo on the roster? (Nicolas Stellini)
2018-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)The A's are hanging in there right now, but I highly doubt they are making a run as the season heads into summer. What are realistic returns for guys like Jed Lowrie, Blake Treinen, Matt Joyce, Jonathan Lucroy, and Khris Davis?
(John from Harrisonburg)
Man, this is tough. The four hitters you mentioned are all playing well now, same as Treinen ... but I think it all depends on perceived need by any acquiring team. Joyce probably pulls the least value of the five, in my opinion, because his role is filled by lots of other players out there on the open market. To me, he's probably a dude that pulls back a flyer-type prospect in that C+ range.

Lucroy could be a big upgrade over a team with a dire catching situation (read: the Nationals), so I could absolutely see a team dealing something from the bottom part of their Top 10 to acquire him on a short-term deal. If he punched a ball over the fence once or twice before the deadline, that'd help his cause.

Davis is an interesting case, as I think his market would be more limited to AL teams, and I think those front offices might see his low BABIP making him something of a buy-low candidate. But he's going to be very expensive in arbitration this offseason, so I'm not sure anyone would see him as a tremendous value, which will drive down his return. Maybe a Top 15 prospect in a strong system? Hard to say.

Treinen is probably the big-ticket item of this bunch, with two more years after this under inexpensive team control. A legitimate prospect could come back to the A's in exchange for his arm (and the rest of him, I guess), and probably 10-12 teams will be looking for a reliever at the deadline. I could see this deal looking like the Justin Wilson trade from the last deadline, with a Jeimer Candelario prospect coming back.

Finally, there's Lowrie. Jed! has been outrageous, and I think he remains underrated and undervalued across the board. The Indians, Cardinals, Diamondbacks, and others could be fun fits this season ... but I'd think the A's would be wise to try to pull the trigger on this deal ASAP. I think he could return a top-10 guy too, but more likely a close-to-the-majors or big-league piece that has more team control and a relatively low upside. (Bryan Grosnick)
2017-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Looking toward 2018, what is the A's optimal use of Matt Olson, Ryon Healy, Khris Davis, and Renato Nunez? Healy, Davis, and Nunez have no defensive value, while Olson plays first base well and right field less well. Olson has trouble hitting lefties, while Nunez and Healy hit them well. Davis is getting expensive, while Healy, Olson, and Nunez are all cheap.
(Tom from San Francisco)
My guess is that it shakes out in largely the same way in has this year. I guess they could try to trade Davis, but I'm not sure what all that profile gets them, and he's not that expensive. Healy is... limited defensively, you're not moving Chapman off third because he's actually good, and so to first it is for Olson. Renato Nunez hasn't shown he can really do stuff at the Major League level. Maybe next spring he shows something that changes the calculus; maybe you platoon first, but I don't think you plan around him. (Megan Rowley)
2017-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking toward next season for the A's, they've got a lot of guys who are DHs, or should be DHs. So of Khris Davis, Ryon Healy, Mark Canha, Matt Olson, and Renato Nunez, where would you put everyone?
(Dave from San Francisco)
Ooh, good question, and thanks for asking it in advance so I could look up some stuff. Let's look at age and contracts: Davis (29) arb eligible in 2018, Healy (25) 2020, Canha (28) 2018, Olson (23) 2020, Nunez (22) 2020. Ideally? Keep Davis in left, Healy at DH, Nunez and Olson backing up the corners, in that order, due to Nunez's flexibility. This being the A's, though, it's not hard to see Davis getting traded, which opens up left for, probably, Canha for the rest of this season and Olson for 2018. I don't see Canha sticking with the club. I should add that Beane seems to become more inscrutable every season, so I'll probably be wrong about everything. (Rob Mains)
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)would you trade Jason Heyward for Derek Fisher and Khris Davis in dynasty?
(Kenji Johjima from seattle)
No. Not a huge fan of Khris Davis for 2017 and beyond. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-05-18 19:00:00 (link to chat)Pick 2 (ROS): Khris Davis, Brandon Drury, Danny Valencia, and Yasmany Tomas
(AJ from Boston)
Danny Valencia and Khris Davis. It's funny Davis is tied for the AL lead in home runs. I've been in on Valencia all offseason, assuming that the hamstring doesn't flare up again, he's going to hit for a ton of power. The progress he's made against right-handed pitching isn't a fluke. (George Bissell)
2016-04-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Oswaldo Arcia finally going to pan out?
(Eddy from Ohio)
He could, but I still believe he needs a change of scenery. The Twins don't believe in his defense and aren't enamored with his lack of patience at the plate. I could see him panning out as a poor man's Khris Davis somewhere, but with the Twins locked up at DH with Mauer/Park, he's going to have a hard time getting a fair shot imo. (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looks like the Tribe is going to roll with an initial OF of Cowgill-Davis-Chisenhall. Yeesh. Why weren't they willing to outbid the White Sox for Austin Jackson? Are they that optimistic on Brantley's return? I fear the Tribe are going to waste some really good pitching.....
(Chief Wahoo from Cleveland)
That is horrible. Just horrible. I wrote the Indians comments for the BP Annual this year (the editorial staff greatly improved them), and I was feeling pretty good. This, however? This is not good. Davis should not be a regular center fielder, and I think the team may be better served with Naquin there. They should have gotten Jackson, or traded for Khris Davis, or signed Rymer Liriano, or re-signed Ryan Raburn, or any of a dozen other things. The only saving grace is that I do think they think that Brantley will be back sooner rather than later. (Bryan Grosnick)
2015-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on Hicks v Khris Davis in a dynasty league? I own hicks & have been offered Davis and must admit it has stumped me.
(markdavo4 from Australia )
I've always been a fan of Hicks, and the pop he's shown this year has been an interesting development. Davis kind of is what he is, and while his mediocre AVG/power combo has value I think I'd rather gamble on what a full year of Hicks might look like. (Wilson Karaman)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Pick two: Joe Mauer, Kolten Wong, Matt Holliday, Khris Davis, Brandon Phillips, Pedro Alvarez. These would be the last two keepers in a 5x5 roto league. (Keeping Panda, Shields, JZimm, Starlin already)
(Lior from MN)
Definitely not Phillips or Davis. I'd probably go Mauer and Holliday. (Ben Carsley)
2015-02-16 11:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of stats do you realistically expect from Yasmany Tomas this year ?
(Bob from Mesa, AZ)
Whoever wrote his Annual comment threw a 2014 Khris Davis comp on him. I haven't seen any of him, so at this point I can't disagree with that evaluation. Check back in a month or two. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)More HRs over the next five years: Chris Davis or Khris Davis?
(MN Joe from Brooklyn, NY)
Chris. Tell Will I say hey. (Ben Carsley)
2014-06-17 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the player you find yourself overvaluing (or just ending up with on your team) more than others?
(Kel from Goodburger)
Is it too cliche to say Adam Dunn? We went around the table on this one and here's what we got: Ben: "I have a soft spot for Evan Longoria that results in what we have come to call irrational affection." Ian: "In general, I'll overvalue prospects relative to my colleagues, or possibly sanity, would dictate. In particular, I'll remember prospect value even after the majors has gotten in the way, so I'll be one of the last off the Jason Heyward train, for example." Jared: "I tend to have a special fondness for guys who can mash the ball, without stopping to think too much about whether they can get on base. Like, say, Khris Davis. Or Chris Davis. Or any other variant thereof." Ben adds: "...like Mark Trumbo!" (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Khris Davis, big sleeper, only 2 homers so far. Overhyped, or possibly starting to breakout?
(Hank from LA)
On pace for 17 HRs (if he played all 162 games), but if he had 3 HRs already, it'd be 25 which is exactly what I was hoping for out of him. Sit tight with him. (Paul Sporer)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Khris Davis for Rizzo - which side do you like?
(Night Hawk from Illinois)
As down as I've been on Rizzo I think he's the far safer investment. I'll take him. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)RJ,who gets dropped in my H2H Brantley,Gattis,C.Johnson or k.Davis.Thanks for any help
(Chesty from New Bern NC)
Gattis or Khris Davis for me. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you like best as a 3rd OFer in 2014: Khris Davis, Oswaldo Arcia, Will Venable
(Alex from Chicago)
Venable, Davis, Arcia for me (Paul Sporer)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can Kris Davis hit 25 + HRs? Do you like him more than Abreau?
(Walker from Ohio)
I don't think so and no, I would go with Abreu over Khris Davis. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hello Mike With an OF J-Up Cargo Bruce who do you feel is the better for the 4 OF K,Davis or Oswaldo.? And what there upside.
(jim from tampa)
Of the two I feel like Oswaldo Arcia has more reliability but Khris Davis has more upside. I think I would go with the better prospect/long term player in Arcia and hope that Davis' hot numbers in a small sample size were fluky. The exception might be in a one-and-done (redraft league). (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)George Springer or Khris Davis will make a bigger splash in 2014?
(SCSC84 from PA)
Springer (Jason Parks)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you tell me who you expect to be better in the short-term and long-term: Khris Davis or Kole Calhoun?
(Jimbo from STL)
I don't expect a huge return from either over the long term, but I believe a tiny bit more in Davis' bat. (Mark Anderson)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you see in Khris Davis and Oswaldo Arcia are they the hitter everyone says he is we just have very little to go by?
(OB1quigon from Tampa)
I don't expect Davis to mash long term. I think he can be a useful piece for the Brewers, but not a centerpiece. Arcia can rake and I expect him to hit and hit a lot for a long time. (Mark Anderson)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which do you think will have the best career? Marcell Ozuna, Jake Marisnick, Michael Choice, Khris Davis? And can you rank the 4 for career? Thanks!
(TheKernel from Pasadena)
I would take Marisnick.

Marisnick, Choice, Ozuna, Davis (Jason Parks)
2013-11-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Khris Davis get a starting job this spring? If so, Milwaukee or elsewhere? Lastly, what kind of numbers is he likely to put up? Cheers...
(Brewin from Gasthaus)
Yes, in Milwaukee, and .234/.311/.477. He's going to be your favorite player at some point. (Sam Miller)

4th OF maybe (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)In an NL-only deep Ultra dynasty league, I was recently offered Cliff Lee for Michael Wacha, Luis Valbuena, Daniel Hudson, Jameson Taillon and Chris Heisey. I thought I was being asked tp give up too much, and asked for more in return. Lee's owner then turned around and traded Lee for Randall Delgado, Dave Sappelt, Tyler Cloyd, Francisco Peguero and Khris Davis. This deal struck me as either ludicrous or retaliatory: He gave up up top starter (Lee has had four excellent starts since then) for three fifth outfielders and two fifth starters. Am I wrong to think these two offers are not on the same planet?
(gerrybraun from san diego)
Hi Gerry.

Without knowing the salaries/contracts of the players involved, I'd agree that the two offers don't compare. Taillon and Wacha are both potentially #2 starters for your future team and Hudson is a good bounce back candidate assuming health. Even if I'm being generous, I don't see how Delgado and Cloyd are going to be better than Taillon and Wacha, and the hitters really seem like bench guys who maybe start at some point if they get really, really lucky. My guess is that the deal was ludicrous rather than retaliatory, but you have every right to be annoyed at your league mate. (Mike Gianella)
2011-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for answering the first question about Russell Wilson. He just committed to UW-Madison for football (in case you did not hear). One more question. Khristopher Davis is hitting well for the Brewers at Brevard County. Any chance he can become anything or does he need to do it at AA to get any actual attention? Age working against him?
(Kyle from Madison WI)
I did see that for Wilson, and I guess he's a pretty good QB, I wouldn't know. I actually kind of like Davis, but yes, he'll need to keep proving it. I still think he could get to the big leagues, which would exceed expectations. (Kevin Goldstein)
