NEW YORK (AP) Chris Davis is not in the lineup for the Baltimore Orioles for a game Monday night against the New York Yankees after spending the night in a hospital with an illness.
The slugger got IV fluid Sunday. Manager Buck Showalter said Monday his first baseman was ''pretty under the weather through this morning.''
Showalter says Davis might have the same bug that affected Zach Britton and Matt Wieters at the All-Star Game, which was ''about a 24-hour thing.'' Showalter was uncertain if Davis would be available to pinch hit Monday.
Davis was 0 for 4 in a 5-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday and is batting .236 with 22 homers and 58 RBIs this season. Ryan Flaherty was at first base for Baltimore.
