Milwaukee Brewers: Khris Davis Raising His Value


Yoenis Cespedes is on fire right now in New York. Carlos Gonzalez is killing the ball in Colorado. Kyle Schwarber is becoming a force in Chicago, but it can be argued that no one his hitting the ball harder than Khris Davis right now. While he often someone that the fans in Milwaukee attack for his throwing arm, Davis in “khrushing” the ball and raising his value in the process.

In 23 August games, Davis has homered 10 times to lead the National League to go along with a .911 OPS that has grown even more with tonight’s blast. As a day game machine, Davis has had three multi homer games and been the center piece of the Brewers’ up and down offense for much of the month. He he hits the ball it is simply launched and by hitting 10 in August he now is climbing up the team’s leader-board with 17 on the season, tying him with Adam Lind and trailing only Ryan Braun.

Even before he came up I have been gigantic fan of Davis, but with the wealth of outfielders on the way in the future and no real spot for Domingo Santana in the current configuration of the club (unless a player like Braun would move to first), moving Davis could bring real value to the Brewers.

Before the deadline, I thought that Jean Segura was possibly the most valuable piece on the roster that could net a big return, but as one of the most underrated power hitters in the NL and a player under control until after the 2019 season, a Davis trade could bring a big return this winter, especially to a team in the American League.
