BALTIMORE (AP) - Orioles first baseman Chris Davis was held out of Saturday's game against Kansas City with a strained left oblique, but the slugger expects to avoid a trip to the disabled list.
Davis left Friday night's game against Kansas City after four innings. He received an MRI and treatment Saturday and said he felt much better.
Asked if expected to stay off the 15-day DL, Davis replied, ''Oh, yeah. As sore as I was yesterday, I don't think it was a DL thing.''
Nick Markakis was in the starting lineup at first base Saturday. The Orioles recalled infielder Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Norfolk to provide an extra bat after optioning reliever T.J. McFarland to Norfolk late Friday night.
Davis led the majors last season with 53 home runs and 138 RBIs.
