Khris Davis Still Feeling Effects of Hip Injury, Leaves Game Vs. Indians

After missing Monday's game with lingering hip discomfort, Khris Davis only lasted one at-bat on Tuesday.

The A's designated hitter noticeably grimaced on a foul ball in the second inning and then grounded out weakly to shortstop on a tentative swing.

Davis suffered a left hip contusion more than two weeks ago in Pittsburgh when he collided with the left field side wall while making a catch.

Davis has been in and out of the lineup since suffering the injury. Both he and A's manager Bob Melvin have said they don't expect him to need a stint on the 10-day injured list, but clearly, he isn't right at the plate.

With a day off Thursday, Davis seems unlikely to play in Wednesday's series finale, and it remains to be seen if he'll be back on Friday when Oakland opens a nine-game homestand.

There was a silver lining for the A's in Tuesday's game, as Mark Canha hit a pinch-hit two-run home run in Davis' place in the third inning.
