Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is officially done for the 2013 season. Then again, so is every player who is not on a team that is headed for the playoffs.

The slugger was clipped on his glove hand by Jacoby Ellsbury on a bang-bang play at first base Sunday in the fourth inning and exited the game after a short meeting with the Orioles’ head trainer. Rich Dubroff of CSNBaltimore.com reports that Davis has been diagnosed with a sprained left wrist.

Davis, 27, will finish the year with an outstanding .286/.370/.634 batting line, 53 home runs and 138 RBI. That home run total is by far the best in the major leagues — Miguel Cabrera finished up at 44 — and the RBI total bested Cabrera by one.

Davis should be fully recovered from his wrist sprain by December.

    Remember when Cabrera was going to repeat the Triple Crown? Whoops.

    Nice season by Davis. Hopefully he gets to play in October next year.

    Great, now he’s definitely not gonna break the single season homerun record, so much for that.

    Gotta congratulate him on a great sason.

    Nothing a cycle of HGH can’t fix! I know, I know, thumbs down from all the people who thought at one time that A-Fraud was clean. Yes, yes, bring your anger with your thumbs. It’s not good to keep it inside.
