Indians “talking” to outfielder Rajai Davis

Leave a comment

Michael Brantley‘s uncertain health status increases the Indians’ need for outfield depth and Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that they “are talking about a one-year deal” with free agent Rajai Davis.

Davis has been a semi-regular for most of the past decade, receiving at least 300 plate appearances every year since 2009 but getting more than 500 plate appearances just once during that time.

He hit .258 with eight homers and a .746 OPS in 112 games for the Tigers in 2015, adding more power than usual to help make up for a decline in speed at age 34.
