Orioles' Chris Davis has PRP injection

By on 4/30/2014 11:00:00 AM

The Baltimore Orioles enter tonight's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates following a rain out last night. At 12-12, the Orioles are just two games behind the New York Yankees in the American League East. They are staying close early on despite the absence of Chris Davis, who is out with an oblique injury. News on Davis is that he received a PRP injection yesterday to assist in the healing process.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on April 27 that Davis was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique after an MRI last Saturday revealed that the strain was worse than originally expected. 

Roch Kubatko, who covers the Orioles for, tweeted the following status update on Davis.
Nick Markakis has been playing first base in the absence of Davis. Markakis is batting .300 with four doubles, a triple and eight RBI this season.

Davis, who had a career season with 53 home runs and 138 RBI last year, is batting .250 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 74 at bats this season.  The seven-year Major League veteran has a career average of .265 with 132 home runs and 373 RBI.
