If the designated hitter position becomes universal with this next Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Cardinals should definitely check on the availability of Khris Davis.
In 42 games in 2021 between the Oakland A’s and Texas Rangers, Davis had a pretty dismal season. He hit .206/.272/.363 with a 74+ wRC. Prior to his bad season in 2021, he had a slow Covid-19 shortened 2020 season, but prior to that he has had quite the bat. For his career spanning eight seasons, Davis has 164 doubles, nine triples, 221 home runs, 590 RBI and 18 stolen base. He has a 117+ wRC for his career as well.
Davis is hopefully using this time to get healthy and back to form. With loads of potential at the plate, Davis should be a hot target for teams this offseason if the designated hitter rule does become universal.
