Why Khris Davis will be the DH for the A’s in the wild card game

Khris Davis’ numbers for the 2019 season aren’t too fun to look at.

Davis’ year was a down one in its own right, but it hit a little different knowing the 48 home run, 123 RBI, .549 slugging percentage and .874 OPS in 2018 might’ve been his ceiling instead of his floor.
