Athletics’ Slugger Khris Davis Inks Extension Through 2021
Khrush Davis is here to stay.
The Oakland Athletics announced on Thursday that they have reached an agreement with Khris Davis that will keep the slugger in green and gold through the 2021 season.
The new deal will pay Davis $16.75 million dollars per season over the next two years via Jeff Passan of ESPN.
The 31 year-old outfielder has been on a tear to start the 2019 season as he leads all of Major League Baseball with 10 home runs and has the fourth-most runs batted in with 20. Davis has been incredibly consistent for Oakland since he was acquired in 2016 with three straight seasons of 40+ home runs and 100+ RBI’s — the only person in Major League Baseball to do so in that time span.
Krush leads all of baseball in home runs and RBI’s since the beginning of the 2016 season, and is on pace for another monster year in 2019.
