6. Chris Davis – 225 home runs

I’d say it’s no shock that Chris Davis would be on this list, if there’s one thing he does well, it’s hit home runs.

Davis came to the Baltimore Orioles in a trade with the Texas Rangers that saw Davis and Tommy Hunter come to Baltimore in exchange for Koji Uehara.

In 2013, Davis had his best season yet, slashing .286/.370/.634 with 53 home runs, 103 runs, and 138 RBIs, earning his only All-Star nomination yet as well as a Silver Slugger Award.

Davis has struggled since then, though he’s always hit plenty of home runs, leading the MLB once again in 2015 with 47. However, his batting average has suffered mightily, thanks mostly to the fact that he strikes out at an alarming rate (above 30% just about every year), as well as some other factors.

As of this writing, Davis is 31-years-old, so he’s got a few years left in him in which he could turn things around and move his way up the list.
