Reds' Rookie Davis: Four innings in return from injury
Davis (ankle) pitched four innings against the Royals on Monday, allowing a run on four hits and a walk while striking out three.
Davis remains in line to contend for a rotation spot for the Reds, though even with the slew of injuries that they've had, it's still a pretty crowded battle. The contenders with Davis for the bottom three spots in the rotation include Bronson Arroyo, Cody Reed, Sal Romano, Amir Garrett and Robert Stephenson. Reed, Romano and Garrett have all made good impressions, while Arroyo has a built-in experience advantage, so Davis still has tough odds to overcome.
