Davis (knee) has reported to Triple-A Sacramento to begin a rehab assignment, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports. Davis has been out since the start of the regular season due to left knee tendinitis, but he appears to be nearing his return to full health. The 26-year-old may remain with the Triple-A club once his rehab assignment is complete, but he should rejoin the major-league roster at some point this year if he performs well in the minors.
Davis (knee) was recalled and placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The 26-year-old was ruled out 4-to-6 weeks at the start of April with left knee tendinitis, and he'll now likely be sidelined until June. Davis was recalled as a procedural move so he could be shifted to the 60-day IL in order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Thairo Estrada.
Davis has left knee tendinitis and will be out 4-to-6 weeks, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Davis was sent to the minors in mid-March after hitting .200 with 12 strikeouts in 22 spring plate appearances. He hits the ball hard and has impressive raw power, but Davis has been unable to break through with a significant big-league role. Look for him to get another look sometime this summer if he is performing well at Triple-A once fully healthy.
The Giants optioned Davis to their minor-league camp Monday. Since being acquired from the Twins at the 2019 trade deadline, Davis has struggled in his limited opportunities at the big-league level, slashing a collective .167/.237/.278 in 59 plate appearances across the past two seasons. All of Mike Yastrzemski, Alex Dickerson, Mauricio Dubon and Austin Slater were clearly ahead of Davis for playing time in the San Francisco outfield, so the 26-year-old will likely head to Triple-A Sacramento pick up regular work.
Davis (knee) is expected to start Saturday's spring game against the Royals, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Davis has yet to appear in a Cactus League game this season due to a sore knee, but he's slated to play right field and bat ninth against Kansas City on Saturday. The 26-year-old ran the bases Thursday, and the Giants didn't sound too concerned about his injury. Assuming he's fully healthy, Davis should now compete for a spot on the major-league roster heading into the regular season.
