The A's may not have to be without star slugger Khris Davis for much longer. 

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Tuesday the designated hitter could make his Cactus League debut by the end of the week, and as early as Thursday:

Davis has been out after suffering a mild left calf strain since the beginning of February. And while this wasn't a serious injury, it's nice to know he will not be missing any regular season games.

The 31-year-old enters his fourth season with the A's. He finished his last campaign with the Green and Gold in 2018 boasting a .247/.326/.549 line with a league-leading and career-high 48 home runs.

The A's take on the Giants on Thursday and the Padres on Friday as spring training continues.
