A's Khris Davis: relaxed, confident and ready to turn page on 2019

Khris Davis' bat wasn't the same after he crashed into the side wall in left field at Pittsburgh in May 2019, injuring his hip and side. He was hit in the hand later in the season, and as the A's designated hitter — who led the majors in homers the season before — struggled to get on track, he wound up only deepening his slump. Though Davis said on a video call this week that he has “closed the chapter” on his rough 2019, he also absorbed a lot from that experience that might help him bounce back strong. “I think this team is good enough where I don't have to do all the work. They proved it last year,” he said. “They don't need me to go out there and hit a home run every night to win a ballgame.
