Celebrated as a great slugger when he was signed for that huge contract in 2016, Davis has proved to be the exact opposite for the Orioles and now stands only a few games away from MLB’s worst hitting slump, Baltimore’s CBS affiliate reports.

Unsurprisingly, Davis ended the 2018 season with the worst batting average in the whole league.
