At this point, he is the Opening Day starting first baseman (with Nolan Reimold, Wilson Betemit and Danny Valencia potentially filling Davis' primary DH role). Davis was supposed to be the main guy last year, but frankly, he did not play as well at first as he or the club would have liked. Eventually, Reynolds seized the job and Davis was moved all around the diamond (and to DH). Before Davis came to Baltimore, he had a reputation of being an above-average first baseman. Haven't seen that yet, but Davis -- and manager Buck Showalter -- believe he still has the potential defensively.
