BALTIMORE -- Orioles slugger Chris Davis will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique, a development that came as a disappointing surprise to the first baseman after he expressed confidence he would soon return from the injury. Jayon Brown Jersey . Davis left Friday nights game against Kansas City after four innings. He received an MRI on Saturday, and the results indicated that rest would be the best course of action. "A little bit worse than what we thought it was going to be," Davis said Saturday night. "Its kind of crazy because I dont feel terrible. Ive never had anything like this before. I figured it would just be a few days and then wed forget about it." Davis led the majors last season with 53 home runs and 138 RBIs. He has only two homers this season, and it will be a while before he gets to add to that total. "I guess the DL is the best choice right now," he said. "Hopefully things will go well and Ill be able to bounce back quickly." Earlier in the day, Davis expressed confidence that he wouldnt miss more than a few games. "Its definitely disappointing, frustrating," he said. "I do a lot to try and take care of my body and prevent injuries. You play this game long enough eventually youre going to run into something like this. But Im going to stay positive." It is uncertain when the injury occurred, although Davis suspected the muscles in his left side might have been weakened when he dived for groundballs in Boston and Toronto before the Orioles returned home to face the Royals. On Friday night, Davis winced after hitting a flyball in the third inning. He played another inning before manager Buck Showalter removed him from the game. Now, it appears as if Showalter will have to adjust to being without Davis for at least the next two weeks. "Its something we think will take the DL period at a minimum, so well start with that (Sunday)," the manager said. Right fielder Nick Markakis was in the starting lineup at first base Saturday night. Before batting practice, three Baltimore coaches worked with Markakis at the position, going over throws and positioning. The Orioles recalled infielder Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday to provide an extra bat after optioning reliever T.J. McFarland to Norfolk late Friday night. Utility infielder Ryan Flaherty also is expected to get time at first base. Flaherty has been playing third base while the Orioles wait for Manny Machado to come off the disabled list following off-season knee surgery. Asked if subbing for Davis, an All-Star last season, will be imposing, Flaherty replied, "I got stuck trying to do that for Manny the first couple weeks." Machado could play in Class A Frederick or Norfolk on Monday. It appears the Minnesota series on May 2-4 could be the most likely time for him to return to the Orioles, Showalter confirmed. Wesley Woodyard Jersey . -- Theres nothing like winning to bring hope for a struggling team. Marcus Mariota Jersey .J. - Henrik Lundqvist has done more than set a couple of franchise records for the New York Rangers this week. http://www.titansstoreonline.com/Black-6-Brett-Kern-Womens-Jersey/ . It certainly isnt a coincidence that Dwight Howard has scored at least 20 points in each game of the winning streak.Perhaps already annoyed by the attention to his left elbow ahead of the Super Bowl, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman used a quip to answer one reporters question about that joints range of motion.If I had to slap my brother, Sherman replied, Id be able to do it.Seattles other All-Pro defensive back, safety Earl Thomas, is dealing with a bum shoulder and not only missed practices but also avoided the media, which is one way to avoid the question that so often becomes a big part of the buildup to the big game: How hurt are you?Ever since Sherman was injured in the NFC championship game, he has maintained he expects to play against the New England Patriots on Feb. 1. Hes been practicing and called the elbow a little sore, but not too bad.Thomas status is less certain.Whenever either is near a microphone or notepad over the next week, updates will be sought.While the NFLs investigation of the underinflated footballs used by the Patriots in the AFC championship game has been getting a ton of attention, there will be room for other topics. Fans of both teams want to know about injuries, as does anyone planning to place a wager on Super Sundays outcome.Over the years, key injuries to key players — including a couple of guys still with the Patriots — have been breathlessly charted in the days before kickoff.Heres a look at some famous examples, including a few involving Super Bowl MVPs:ROB GRONKOWSKI, PATRIOTS, 2012: After catching 17 touchdown passes, a record for a tight end, he sprained his left ankle in the AFC title game. The appetite for information was not helped by New England coach Bill Belichicks general reluctance to provide details on injuries. A Buffalo TV station cited Gronkowskis father as saying Rob would be fine. The only reason its getting so blown up is because its the Super Bowl, Gronk said at Media Day. THE GAME: He had only two catches for 26 yards in New Englands 21-17 loss to the New York Giants; a desperation heave on the final play fell just out of a lunging Gronkowskis reach.TOM BRADY, PATRIOTS, 2002: In his first season as an NFL starting quarterback, Brady sprained his left ankle in the AFC cchampionship game. Logan Ryan Jersey. It wasnt until the Wednesday before the Super Bowl that Belichick announced the youngster would start over Drew Bledsoe. Belichick even went so far as to ask a pool reporter not to identify who took the most snaps at QB in practice. THE GAME: Brady was voted MVP. He went 16 for 27 for just 145 yards but didnt throw an interception and led the drive to the winning field goal in New Englands 20-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams.EMMITT SMITH, COWBOYS, 1994: The leagues career leading rusher separated his right shoulder in the last game of the regular season; he wound up having off-season surgery. After the NFC title game, Smith was asked about his shoulder, and he joked that Dallas coach Jimmy Johnson said its healed, so I guess its healed. THE GAME: Smith was voted MVP. He ran for 132 yards and two second-half touchdowns in the Cowboys 30-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills.JERRY RICE, 49ERS, 1989: The man with by far the most yards receiving in NFL history sprained his right ankle during practice the Monday before the Super Bowl. After he showed up for interviews the next day with that ankle taped, folks starting discussion whether someone such as Mike Wilson would be able to fill in capably. THE GAME: Rice was voted MVP. He had 11 catches for 215 yards and one TD, and had three grabs for 51 yards on the winning drive in a 20-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.DON MAYNARD, JETS, 1969: Maynard — like Smith and Rice, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame — injured his hamstring in the AFL championship game. But it was, of course, a different era, without Twitter and 24-hour TV channels. According to lore, the Jets Super Bowl opponent didnt even know Maynard was hurt. THE GAME: Maynard was used as a decoy and wound up with zero catches, but Joe Namath and the Jets beat the NFLs Baltimore Colts 16-7.___AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner and AP Sports Writers Tim Booth and Jimmy Golen contributed to this report.___Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Stitched Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
