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.
