Orioles slugger Chris Davis won’t be part of the ALCS roster, Showalter confirmed on Thursday. Davis has five games remaining on his 25-game suspension for Adderall, a banned substance in baseball. If Davis were on the postseason roster, the Orioles would have to play with 24 until game six. Davis has 26 home runs this season after hitting a major-league best 53 last year.
