Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Could be fixture in lineup
Davis will start in center field and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Pirates.
After Hunter Renfroe (calf) landed on the 10-day injured list June 26, Davis appeared to settle into a short-side platoon role in the outfield with Jace Peterson, but both Davis and Peterson look as though they'll have an opportunity to play on a near-everyday basis in the short term. Tyrone Taylor (concussion) joined Renfroe on the IL on Sunday, creating openings in center and right field that will most likely be filled by Davis and Peterson until one of the two injured outfielders is activated. Davis is a strong defender with good speed, but a weak bat and an expected placement near the bottom of the Milwaukee lineup likely won't lend itself to much fantasy value.... See More ... See Less

Davis (back/ribs) is starting in center field and batting ninth in Friday's series opener against the Pirates.
After crashing into the outfield wall Wednesday, Davis was forced to miss the remainder of that contest and was also unavailable for Thursday's loss. He will now return to the lineup in center field, where he will fill in for Tyrone Taylor.... See More ... See Less

Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Exits after spectacular catch
Davis was removed in the bottom of the third inning Wednesday after suffering an apparent injury to his head or face in the previous inning, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. He struck out in his lone plate appearance prior to departing.
Davis made one of the catches of the season to kick off the bottom of the second, flagging down a screaming line drive off the bat of Randy Arozarena at the warning track. He appeared to run face-first into the outfield fence, but he stayed in the game for the remainder of the inning. However, after Davis was evaluated in the dugout in the next half inning, the Brewers opted to hold him out for the remainder of the contest. Jace Peterson entered the game as a replacement for Davis.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Managing low back, rib cage issues
Davis was diagnosed with low back/rib cage discomfort after leaving Wednesday's game against the Rays, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Davis crashed into the wall in center field on a diving catch in the bottom of the second inning and initially remained in the game, but he exited in the bottom of the third inning. The 30-year-old should tentatively be considered day-to-day prior to Thursday's series opener in Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jonathan Davis: May move into short side of platoon
Davis is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays.
Kolten Wong's (calf) return from the 10-day injured list Tuesday looks as though it may indirectly bump Davis into a short-side platoon role. With Wong set to handle an everyday role at second base, the versatile Jace Peterson no longer has a regular spot in the infield, so he'll occupy right field in Tuesday's game. As a left-handed hitter, Peterson projects to handle the larger side of a platoon in the outfield with the right-handed Davis, who is out of the lineup while righty Shane Baz takes the hill for Tampa Bay. Davis started in each of the previous four games, going 3-for-14 with two walks, a stolen base, a run and an RBI.... See More ... See Less

Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Starting again Sunday
Davis is starting in center field and batting ninth Sunday against the Blue Jays, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The 30-year-old made major-league appearances for the Blue Jays and Yankees over the last four seasons and should provide outfield depth for Milwaukee after Lorenzo Cain was designated for assignment Saturday.

Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Sent to minor-league camp
The Brewers reassigned Davis to their minor-league camp Monday.
Davis' speed and ability to play all three outfield spots give him some value as an organizational depth piece for Milwaukee, but his status as a non-roster invitee at spring training realistically made him a long shot for the Opening Day roster. He's expected to open the season at Triple-A Nashville and will likely need an outfielder or two on the MLB roster to succumb to an injury before he receives a call-up to Milwaukee.... See More ...

Davis was sent to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in late August and hit just .154 with a homer, a triple, a double, six runs, five RBI and a stolen base since then. It wouldn't be surprising to see the 29-year-old remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers.... See More ... See Less

After claiming Davis off waivers from Toronto on Tuesday, the Yankees were expected to send the outfielder to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Yankees claimed Davis off waivers from Toronto on Tuesday.
The 29-year-old was designated for assignment by Toronto on Friday and now finds a home in the Yankees' organization. It's unclear whether New York intends to call him up in the near future or if he'll just serve as minor-league outfield depth, which could come in handy given the recent COVID-19 infections in the Yankees' clubhouse....

Blue Jays' Jonathan Davis: Loses 40-man spot
Davis was designated for assignment Friday.
Davis has come to the plate 85 times at the big-league level this season but has done very little with those opportunities, homering just once while hitting .143/.282/.200.
