Athletics’ Slugger Davis Gets $33.5M Extension – Oakland Athletics slugger Khris Davis has signed a two-year extension that will keep him under contract through the 2021 season, the team announced Thursday. The A’s did not disclose financial terms, but sources told ESPN that the deal is for $33.5 million. Davis, 31, is batting .260 with a major-league-leading 10 home runs this season. He also has 20 RBIs. Davis led the majors with 48 home runs last season. He has belted 143 homers since joining Oakland before the 2016 season, the most in the majors over that span. His three seasons with at least 40 home runs are tied with Mark McGwire and Hall of Famer Jimmie Foxx for the most in A’s history.
