Oakland Athletics: A’s officially activate Khris Davis from disabled list

As expected, the Oakland A’s officially reinstated designated hitter Khris Davis from the 10-day disabled list, making room for him by optioning right-handed pitcher Carlos Ramirez to Triple-A Nashville, the club announced Thursday morning.

Before he went down with a Grade 1 groin strain on May 20, Davis was batting .235 with 13 home runs and 38 RBI and had started each of the A’s first 47 games.  He is tied for eighth in the American League in home runs and RBI and his 98 home runs over the last three years are the most in the majors.

Davis will start at designated hitter on Thursday, and bat fourth.

Before Davis went down, Oakland averaged 4.72 runs per game, and hit .252 as a team. In nine games with Davis on the disabled list, the A’s averaged just 1.67 runs per game and hit just .155.

Ramirez was recalled from Nashville on Saturday and made his A’s debut last night against Tampa Bay, throwing 2.0 scoreless innings of relief.  He was claimed off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays on May 20 and has a 2.08 ERA in three appearances overall in the majors.
