Orioles veteran Chris Davis restrained from going after his own manager

Baltimore Orioles veteran Chris Davis has been doing plenty of whiffing in the batter’s box this season.

Davis tried to change that in the home dugout during Wednesday night’s game — but he never got a chance.

The struggling slugger had to be restrained from going after — and potentially taking swings — at his own manager, Brandon Hyde.

It’s unclear exactly what caused tensions to escalate. The incident occurred in the fifth inning.

Davis struck out in his only at-bat before being pulled from the game. He is hitting a paltry .182 with 111 strikeouts in 247 ABs.

The 33-year-old signed a seven-year, $161 million contract to remain in Baltimore in 2016.

Safe to say things aren’t exactly going well.
