Davis' recent 4-for-6 surge over two games against the Rangers came after making an adjustment to his hand positioning in the batter's box, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "It's just been helping me be more accurate to the ball. I'm finding less swings-and-misses and a little better contact," Davis said. "Just having them farther back, there's less room to go. They're already ready to fire. It's been working."
