This move had been expected, but it still took some time. The Athletics announced today that slugger Khris Davis is going to the 10-day injured list, retroactive to May 22nd.
In the announcement, the club cited a “left hip/oblique contusion.” It still isn’t known just how long Davis will be down, but the hope remains it won’t be an exceedingly long absence.
In his stead, outfielder Skye Bolt will join the active roster. The 25-year-old came up briefly earlier this year. He has been turning in big numbers at Triple-A, with a .311/.379/.571 slash and six home runs through 132 plate appearances.
