Yes, another Orioles free agent target for the Astros, but who wouldn’t want to see Davis hitting in the middle of the Astros’ batting order?

Davis is the best hitter on the free agent market in terms of power, and would easily be an upgrade at first base for the Astros. Davis could be lethal in hitter-friendly Minute Maid Park, as he possesses the ability to hit to the opposite field.

Not only can he play first base, but he could be an option in the outfield if need be, which could add flexibility to the Astros’ roster. Chris Carter has struggled as the club’s first baseman, so it definitely could be time the Astros address the situation.

His price tag will be high, but it’s worth a shot for the Astros to take a look at the 29-year-old. If the team could find a way to acquire him, the Astros’ lineup would instantly become one of the best in baseball.
