On February 13, 2020, Davis signed with the Acereros de Monclova of the Mexican League.
He was designated for assignment on May 26. After clearing waivers, Davis accepted an assignment to the minor leagues, and was outrighted off the major league roster on May 28, 2019. On August 20, the Mets selected Davis' contract. On September 14, after Jacob deGrom and Hyun-Jin Ryu both went seven scoreless innings, Davis hit a pinch-hit bases-clearing 3-run double in the bottom of the 8th against Julio Urias to give the Mets a 3-0 lead, which they would hold to even the series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. In 2019 he batted .200/.231/.400 with one home run in 25 at bats.
On February 17, 2018, Davis signed a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians that included an invitation to the Indians' spring training camp. The Indians purchased Davis's contract on March 29, 2018. For the season with the Indians, he batted .224/.278/.281 in 196 at bats.
On December 17, 2018, Davis signed a minor-league contract with the New York Mets, the team for which he rooted as a child growing up in Connecticut. On May 22, 2019, Davis was informed during batting practice for the AAA Syracuse Mets, before their road game in Pennsylvania, that he had been called up to the big league club. He took a two-hour Uber ride to Citi Field, arriving in the third inning, and stopped to take a photo with his Uber driver outside the stadium. He only met manager Mickey Callaway in the fifth; he entered the game in the eighth as a pinch-hitter and hit a three-run home run, extending the Mets' lead to 6-1. The entire story captured national media attention.
In January 2017, Davis signed a one-year deal with the Athletics. During his time with Oakland during the 2017 season, Davis appeared in 100 games, batting .233./.294/.353 with 18 RBIs, 5 home runs, and 26 stolen bases. He primarily played center field, along with some games at the other outfield positions.
The Boston Red Sox acquired Davis from the A's for minor league outfielder Rafael Rincones on August 23, 2017. In 36 at bats with Boston he hit .250/.289/.306.
On July 2, 2016, Davis hit for the cycle in a game against the Toronto Blue Jays. It was the eighth cycle in Cleveland Indians franchise history, the first since Travis Hafner in 2003, and the sixth player in Major League history to hit for a reverse cycle. He led off the game with a home run, hit a triple in the third inning, a double in the sixth inning, and finished the cycle with a single in the ninth inning.
On November 2, 2016, during Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, Davis hit a game tying, two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning off of Cubs closer Aroldis Chapman. It was the first home run allowed by Chapman since June 18th, when he was with the Yankees. The Indians, however, went on to lose the game (and thus the series) to the Cubs in extra innings.

On August 30, 2014, Davis recorded his 32nd stolen base of the season, and his 300th stolen base of his career. Davis became just the second active player to record a 30-steal season for three different teams. Davis' 300 stolen bases ranks him 12th among active players.

Davis was placed on the disabled list on May 11, 2013, with a strained left oblique. After a brief two game rehab assignment with the Dunedin Blue Jays, Davis was activated from the disabled list on June 4. On June 8, in the bottom of the 18th inning against the Texas Rangers, Davis hit a single that scored Emilio Bonifacio in the longest Blue Jays game in franchise history. In a game against the Houston Astros on July 28, Davis tied a Blue Jays franchise record by stealing four bases, joining Damaso Garcia, Dave Collins, Roberto Alomar, and Otis Nixon.
On December 11, 2013, the Tigers signed Davis to a two-year, $10 million contract. On June 30, 2014, he hit a walk-off grand slam home run against Oakland Athletics closer Sean Doolittle to win the game 5–4. It was the first walk-off homer of Davis' career, and the 28th documented ultimate grand slam in MLB history.
Davis and his wife, Marissa, have two children: a daughter, Jada (born 2013); and a son, Jordan (born 2015). Davis is a Christian.
On May 18, 2012, in a home game against the New York Mets, Davis had the first multi home run game of his career, hitting two home runs and four RBIs in a 14–5 win.

Davis finished second in stolen bases, with 46, for the 2012 campaign (Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim led the league with 49).
In a game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on August 14, 2011, Davis tore his hamstring running to first base. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list after the game. Prior to the injury, Davis ranked third in the American League in stolen bases with 34.
Following the acquisition of David DeJesus, the Athletics traded Davis to the Toronto Blue Jays for Trystan Magnuson and Daniel Farquhar on November 17, 2010.
On April 23, 2008, Davis was claimed off waivers by the Oakland Athletics and was added to the active roster. With Oakland in 2008, he stole 25 bases in 196 at-bats. In 2009, Davis became the primary center fielder for the A's, hitting .305 with 41 stolen bases in 125 games, primarily in center field. In 2010, he also started for most of the season hitting .284 with 52 RBIs and 50 stolen bases. When Coco Crisp came back from injury, Davis switched from center field to playing both left and right field for the remainder of the season.
Davis was traded to the San Francisco Giants with pitcher Stephen MacFarland on July 31, 2007, for Matt Morris. He made his Giants debut the next night against the Los Angeles Dodgers, stealing a base and throwing out a runner from center field.

Davis made his major league debut for the Pirates on August 14, 2006, going 0-for-1 in a pinch hit appearance against the Milwaukee Brewers. He stole his first base two days later, but did not get his first Major League hit for another two weeks. It came on August 29, in the form of a pinch hit double off Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano. He made his first and only defensive appearance of 2006 the next day, playing three innings in right field.
Davis began his career as a switch-hitter, but became a full-time right-handed hitter prior to the 2004 season. He also throws right-handed.
After borrowing gas money to drive himself from Connecticut to Pittsburgh for a pre-draft open workout at PNC Park, Davis was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 38th round (1,134th overall) of the 2001 Major League Baseball Draft as a second baseman. Davis chose to sign with the Pirates instead of accepting a scholarship offer to continue his college baseball career at UConn. He played six full minor league seasons before making his major league debut. He had a .305 career minor league batting average to go along with 251 stolen bases in 322 attempts. In addition, Davis made three consecutive All-Star appearances at three different levels of play from 2002 to 2004.
