Remember Eugenio Velez? Of course you do.
Going into Tuesday's slate of games, Davis is 0-for-28 to start the 2019 season. Dating back to 2018, it gets even worse. Historically worse.
Davis is now hitless in his last 49 at-bats, the longest streak in MLB history. How is he connected to Velez? The record of futility breaks the former Giants utility player's streak of 46-straight hitless at-bats.
Velez began his streak at the end of the 2010 season as a member of the Giants. He went hitless in his final nine at-bats that year and then continued the streak for 37 more at-bats in 2011 as a Dodger.
He never recorded a hit with the Dodgers and never made it back to the major leagues.
Velez last played in the majors in 2011, finishing the season 0-for-37. He hit .256 over four years as a Giant and made $1,210,000 in his major league career.
Davis, on the other hand, is making $23 million in this season alone. He signed a seven-year, $161 million contract with the Orioles before the 2016 season.
Since signing his megadeal, Davis has hit .199 with 621 strikeouts in 422 games.
Eugenio Velez, #ForeverGiant.
