As of right now, the Orioles starting first baseman is Chris Davis. Although the Orioles and many fans alike would probably rather see him as the everyday DH.
The 26-year-old has shown tremendous power as a hitter, leading the O's in both RBI and homers in 2012. His bat will keep him in the lineup, day-in and day-out barring injury. His glove, however, leaves much to be desired.
At 6'3", 232 lbs, Davis is a big target at first. He also has a solid .995 fielding percentage in 261 games at first throughout his career.
That being said, he's not going to be making many run-saving plays. His size may provide a big target, but it also makes him less agile. Davis' range isn't spectacular, and he has struggled to pick out anything from the dirt when at first as an Oriole.
There's little doubt that Davis will see some time at first this year. However, he will probably see just as much time, if not more, as a designated hitter.
