Why A’s Bob Melvin, Billy Beane believe Khris Davis will bounce back

OAKLAND—For all of the positive developments in the A’s 2019 season, there still is one giant unsolved mystery.

What in the world happened to Khris Davis?

After recording at least 40 home runs and 100 RBI in each of his first three seasons with the A’s, while incredibly batting .247 all three years, Davis plummeted back to earth this year. The 31-year-old slashed just .220/.293/.387, all career-worsts, with only 23 homers and 73 RBI.

“I know it was frustrating for Khris,” A’s executive vice president Billy Beane said. “I think he probably put a lot of pressure on himself. Khris takes a lot of pride in his role on the team and being that guy who’s the 40-homer, middle-of-the-lineup guy. I think he was trying to find the answer as much as anybody, and it certainly wasn’t for a lack of effort on his part or the coaching staff’s.

Well, it sure beats believing in the alternative…..
