Davis, who has played in all but one of the team’s games this season, wasn’t feeling well Sunday night.
“He was throwing up. He was sick on the plane last night,” manager Buck Showalter said.
Showalter thought it could have been a virus similar to the one that Zach Britton and Matt Wieters had at the All-Star Game. Coaches Dom Chiti and Wayne Kirby have also been ill, Showalter said.
“We took him to the hospital last night. He took some IV fluid. He’s pretty under the weather through this morning,” Showalter said.
“We’ll see if he’s available tonight to pinch hit or not.”
Ryan Flaherty starts at first base for the first time this season.
Meanwhile Hyun Soo Kim remains sidelined with a strained right hamstring.
Kim injured the hamstring on July 10, the final game before the All-Star break and missed the three games in Tampa Bay and isn’t in the lineup on Monday night.
Showalter reported that Kim exercised but didn’t run.
“I can’t say he’s any better, but he’s not any worse,” Showalter said.
He expects Kim to participate in Darren O’Day’s simulated game on Tuesday.
Wednesday is the last day the Orioles can backdate Kim to the disabled list.
“We’ll have a pretty good feel tomorrow. Hopefully we can’ dodge the DL. I think tomorrow we’ll probably make a decision which way we’re going to go on that,” Showalter said.
Through his translator, Kim said he’s not used to extended idleness.
“I agree that this is taking longer than I thought because I never have taken a long break in my career. I didn’t think it was going to be this long,” Kim said.
“The goal is to be ready by Wednesday, but nothing works in a perfect fashion. I’ll definitely try my best to get ready to play and we’ll see how it goes and decide by then.”
