ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is out of the lineup at Tampa Bay because of an illness.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Monday night’s game that Davis would be checked by a Rays doctor.

Davis is hitting .217 with 17 homers and 35 RBIs in 71 games. The slugger was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list July 14 after sitting out a month with strained right oblique.
