This season was a bit of a surprising one when it came to the American League Triple Crown. Everybody thought that Miguel Cabrera could repeat, but Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles posted some monster numbers and put an end to Cabrera’s Triple Crown reign.
Davis finished the season as the league’s home run leader as he launched a career high 53 home runs and drove in 138 RBI’s with 199 strike outs in 160 games this season. Davis who sprained his left wrist in the final game of the regular season put up a batting line of .286/.370/.634 which is also a career high.
Now according to Roch Kubatko on Twitter, Davis hasn’t reported any lingering issues with his wrist. Which is an amazing sign as they head into the off-season. Most players usually pick up Golf during the off-season to keep them active, so his swing should still be dangerous next season.
If he launched a career high in almost every category this season, imagine how far he’ll be able to drive a golf ball. Anyways, there are no questions marks regarding his health and this team should be adding more talent around him in hopes of a playoff run next season.
Depending on what the Boston Red Sox do with their current roster once the season ends, this Orioles team could be a favorite to win that American League East division.
Oh, here are some highlights.
