Khris Davis, Oakland Athletics agree to $10.5 million, one-year contract


OAKLAND, Calif. — Slugger Khris Davis and the Oakland Athletics agreed to a one-year, $10.5 million contract, more than doubling Davis’ salary after he beat the team in arbitration last winter.

Davis won a $5 million salary during a hearing last February, when the club offered $4.65 million. The agreement announced Wednesday avoided another hearing next month.

Davis is Oakland’s slugging centerpiece. He hit a career-best 43 home runs, connecting on the season’s final day to surpass the season high he set the previous year for Oakland. The 30-year-old is the only A’s player aside from Jimmie Foxx (1932-34) with consecutive 40-homer seasons.

Davis’ 85 homers the past two seasons are second in the majors to Giancarlo Stanton‘s 86.

Davis batted .247 with a career-high 110 RBIs in 153 games last season.
