Davis was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports. The catcher appeared in two games in the majors after having his contract purchased by Pittsburgh on Sept. 20. He went 2-for-5 with a walk in those contests. Jacob Stallings was reinstated from the 7-day injured list Tuesday following a concussion that caused him to miss over a week of action.
Davis went 2-for-3 in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Phillies. The 31-year-old, who collected a pair of singles Saturday, could work his way into a platoon with Michael Perez while starter Jacob Stallings (concussion) remains sidelined. Davis has slashed .253/.347/.331 at Triple-A with two homers in 176 plate appearances in 2021.
Davis had his contract selected by the Pirates on Monday. Davis was acquired by the Pirates in June and will receive his first big-league opportunity with the organization since Jacob Stallings (concussion) landed on the injured list. Davis should operate as the No. 2 backstop while Michael Perez handles primary catching duties with Stallings out.
The Orioles traded Davis to the Pirates in exchange for Jose Berroa on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Davis joins the Pirates organization in the midst of a solid offensive season, as he's hit .289 across 43 Triple-A at-bats so far in 2021.
Davis joined the Orioles' player pool Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Davis will provide the Orioles with extra depth behind the plate, but he's unlikely to play a significant role. The 30-year-old has only received 39 big-league plate appearances in his career.
