2014 FANTASY BASEBALL AROUND THE CAMPS: BALTIMORE ORIOLES

We continue again in the AL East as we visit all 30 major league camps and answer some prime fantasy baseball questions at each location.  Today we visit with the powerful Baltimore Orioles who have some thunderous bats led by 50 home run monster Chris Davis.
 
1.  Speaking of Davis that is a great place to start.  What can he possibly do as an encore to his ridiculous 2013 campaign?
Davis was the fantasy baseball hitting story of the year last season as he cracked 53 home runs and 139 RBI to place himself squarely into the first round of 2014 drafts.  Obviously no one should expect Davis to replicate the 53 home runs as that is a completely extreme number especially in today's game.  Opposing pitchers for one will be much more careful around Davis this season and not be as generous as far as giving him pitches to hit.  A slide back to 40-45 home runs is likely but that is still an incredibly high number and makes Davis worth a first round grab.  Another issue however to stay aware of is Davis' .286 average last season which was propped up big time by an unsustainable amount of BABIP luck.  Taking things even further, Davis struck out in 30 percent of his at-bats last season which is a rate that generally goes with around a .260 average.  Don't be shocked if Davis ends up in that neighborhood.
