Seeing the quote about crushing arms and the hip issues, I wonder if he has the male weightlifting syndrome, where all he wants to do is biceps and chest, that would explain a lot. A lot of power is generated from the legs and hips. If his workouts were solely upper body based, that is going to lead to the aforementioned hip injuries and wear and tear. When I trained for a marathon I dropped my leg days because they were worn from all the running, but realized quickly I was hurting myself more in doing so. Hope he has a solid team.
As to the looking at pitches, I mean, dude has been worst player under scrutiny of massive contract with most striekouts and worst batting average in a season, I'd have a case of the freeze hitting too.
Either way, I will be rooting for him as he as always been a good guy, he's an Oriole, and I can't blame or get mad at him for the massive contract he received; having said all that, I hope he has the dignity to walk away from the game as he says he would if he has another terrible year.
We all want Davis to play well if he is on the team, but Davis hasn't been good enough to be a regular in the starting lineup since 2016. Davis is going to be 34 years and the odds are against him to turn it around. We'll see if a more muscular Chris Davis can hit better soon enough.
