News: Davis will be on the bench for the fifth straight game Monday against the Cardinals, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Impact: With Pedro Alvarez transitioning over to first base in light of his ongoing defensive struggles at third base, Davis seems destined to see only pinch-hitting duty and the occasional spot start the rest of the season. In an ideal scenario for the Pirates, Davis would at least be one half of a platoon at first base, but even that's not possible since both he and Alvarez are left-handed batters.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis is not in the lineup Wednesday vs. the Braves, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Impact: Davis will sit for the second time in the series with a left-hander on the mound in Alex Wood. Pedro Alvarez, who started Monday's game at first base instead of his usual third base spot, will also sit out Wednesday, allowing Gaby Sanchez to pick up the rare starting nod.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis is out of the lineup Monday vs. the Braves, MLB.com reports. Impact: Davis will give way to Pedro Alvarez at first base Monday, a development that could become more of a trend given the latter's ongoing defensive struggles at third base, as well as Josh Harrison's ascension into an everyday role. Alvarez has offered better power numbers than Davis the last two seasons, but Davis' .354 on-base percentage and strong track record against right-handers may make him the superior option at first base.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis delivered his third straight solid start Wednesday, going 1-for-2 with a pair of walks. Impact: While the first baseman has struggled in the power category with Pittsburgh, he's put up a .351 on-base percentage in 2014. Davis has two hits in two career at-bats plus a walk against Thursday starter Max Scherzer.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis delivered a pinch-hit RBI double Tuesday against Detroit. Impact: He hit his eighth homer a game prior. Davis could lose playing time if the Pirates decide to give fellow left-handed hitter Pedro Alvarez a shot at first base, but Davis needs to right his own ship. He holds a healthy .347 on-base percentage but his .723 OPS in 334 plate appearances leaves much to be desired.(RotoWire, )
