Former Major League HR Champ Looking For a Job

With 221 career home runs under his belt, and still only 24 years old, former Oakland Athletics slugger Khris Davis is looking for another shot at the big leagues, and there is some interest out there according to one report.

MLB Insider Robert Murray says that Davis is drawing interest from multiple teams. 

Davis played about 20 games each for the A's and the Texas Rangers last season, but only managed a combined 3 home runs. In 2018, he led the major leagues with 48 dingers, his 3rd straight year with 40+ HR and 100+ RBIs, all for the A's.

His career was completely derailed by a string of injuries beginning in 2019, including problems with his hip, oblique and hand. 

In nearly 1,000 MLB games over a 9-year career, Davis has a .242 average and an .805 OPS to go with his 221 HR. Strikeouts have always been the problem with the slugger, however, as he's whiffed in 30% of his big league at-bats. 

No word yet on which teams might be interested in giving him a shot, though a return engagement with Oakland can't be ruled out.
