    Not sure if it`s a thing, but man does this guy suck. He is worse than Dan Uggla was for the Braves.


    BALTIMORE -- Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is nearing a record streak for futility.

    Davis was 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Sunday's 15-3 loss to the New York Yankees. He is 0-for-23 with 13 strikeouts this season and is hitless in 44 at-bats since a second-inning double off James Shields of the Chicago White Soxlast Sept. 14.

    Davis is two shy of the record for consecutive hitless at-bats by a position player, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Eugenio Velez went hitless in his final 46 at-bats of the 2011 season, one more than the previous mark shared by Bill Bergen of Pittsburgh (1909), Dave Campbell of San Diego and St. Louis (1973) and Craig Counsell of Milwaukee (earlier in 2011).

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde has tried to stay positive with Davis, who has two RBIs -- on a bases-loaded walk and a fielder's choice grounder. Most of the Orioles' lineup struggled Sunday against Yankees left-hander Domingo German, who gave up two runs, two hits and two walks over six-plus innings.
    "I haven't talked to him about it since, but he's facing a tough lefty there," Hyde said. "I hope that he feels like he's making progress. He took a couple decent passes on those fly balls. Just didn't happen."

    Davis is in the fourth season of a $161 million, seven-year contract.

    He hit .168 last year, the worst batting average in major league history for a qualified player, with 16 home runs, 49 RBIs and a .539 OPS.
