Davis takes over for Markakis in right field
BALTIMORE -- Chris Davis moved back to right field Sunday, taking over for the injured Nick Markakis.

Davis can play the corner positions, left or right field, first or third base. He played a lot at first base (38 games) earlier this year before manager Buck Showalter shifted Mark Reynolds from third to first, a move that's paid off.

This season, Davis has made 15 starts in right field, 11 in left and 51 at DH. But he said he'll be fine in the outfield.

"It's something that I was doing earlier this year when Nicky was hurt," he said. "I think it's something everybody's comfortable with, the fact that I've been out there this year and have played some games there."

Davis said that he's just going to do the best he can and help the Orioles keep rolling.

"Nobody's going to feel sorry for us," Davis said. "I'm in no way trying to fill his shoes."
