Davis entered Saturday's game against the Mets in the eighth inning as a pinch runner for Joe Panik and stole second base. Blue Jays.manager Charlie Montoyo opted to sub in Davis as a pinch runner in the eighth and then utilize his speed in the outfield to finish out the game. Davis should continue to serve as an outfield depth option and speed specialist for the Blue Jays while receiving an occasional start.
Davis went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Yankees. Davis took J.A. Happ deep in the second inning, providing the Blue Jays with the only offense they'd need to secure a win. It was his first home run of the season and third of his career. Davis will get a chance for some playing time with Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) sidelined, but it will likely come primarily against southpaws in relief of Derek Fisher.
Davis was recalled by the Blue Jays on Monday. Davis spent the start of the season at alternate camp after missing a portion of camp for an undisclosed reason. He should fill a depth role in the outfield after Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Davis (undisclosed) was activated off the injured list and optioned to the Blue Jays' alternate training site Sunday. Davis missed the start of summer camp with an undisclosed issue, but he reported during the second week of July and is now fully clear of the issue. The 28-year-old could join the Blue Jays later in the season if they need some outfield depth.
The Blue Jays placed Davis on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to an unspecified issue. Davis was one of four Blue Jays placed on the IL, with no explanation given for any of the transactions. The move is retroactive to June 30, so if deemed healthy, Davis would be eligible to return from the IL before the Blue Jays begin their season July 23 or 24. The 28-year-old is expected to serve as a backup outfielder for Toronto in 2020 after spending the bulk of the 2019 campaign at Triple-A Buffalo, with whom he slashed .262/.382/.449 with 10 home runs and 13 steals over 352 plate appearances.
