His violation was his ADD meds and I'm pretty sure he currently has the exemption.

If he takes Adderall, for which he doesn't have a TUE, he could be suspended.

I dont think anyone's buying it this time. Davis is now admitting he's older which is an ominous sign of the season he's about to have. .

I guess it depends on the mindset.  If the big contract was the important thing to you I can see why you wouldn't want to risk losing money by testing positive.

I'd say there's a selection issue here, though. If all you care about is the money/contract, it's quite difficult to get to that level of a given sport, particularly a heavily skill-based sport (baseball). High internal desire to be good/great at the sport is somewhat necessary to get to that decision point in the first place.

The fact is that Davis can't hit MLB pitching anymore.  He can't catch up to a 95 mph fastball anymore.  Those are a dime a dozen in the modern bullpen and not uncommon in starters.  He is hitting ridiculously low against good fastballs.  It was around .100 or so, ok that's not much lower than his regular average.  He can't even hit mistake pitches from a pitcher with good velocity anymore.

I don't think Davis could hit .280 in the Independent baseball league.
