Chris Davis is coming to Sports Illustrated cover near you.

The Orioles' slugging first baseman is featured on one of SI's regional covers for the magazine's Aug. 26 issue.

(Some readers will receive a cover featuring Italian soccer star Mario Balotelli.)

Inside the magazine will be a feature story from Tom Verducci on Davis' rise to power.

The Orioles also graced one of SI's regional covers last October, and SI's Albert Chen profiled Manny Machado in April.
