Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has started the season off 0-for-23. This combined with going hitless in his last 21 at-bats from last season, has him closing in on the record for consecutive hitless at-bats.
Davis is just two at-bats without a hit shy of the record for consecutive hitless at-bats by a position player. The record is currently held by Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Eugenio Velez, who went hitless in his final 46 at-bats of the 2011 season.
Davis is by far the highest paid player to go hitless for this long. He’s getting paid $17 million this season to something anyone reading this could do.
At what point do you start refusing your paychecks? Davis is in year four of a 7-year, $161 million contract and is coming off a season where he hit just .168.
