Chris Davis' power outage?

Chris Davis looked like he was on pace to challenge Roger Maris' old home run record, but that was before he participated in the Home Run Derby. Davis has gone 31 plate appearances without a home run, and since June 1 has only put up a .320 OBP. He was a major reason why the Orioles were in the hunt in the first half, but a Davis without power isn't going to help Baltimore hold on to a playoff spot. Meanwhile, teammate Manny Machado (.271/.293/.397 with 41 strikeouts since June 1) isn't picking up Davis' slack.
