Davis signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Monday which includes an invitation to spring training.
Davis spent the entire 2017 campaign with Triple-A Reno, finishing the season with an unremarkable 4.38 ERA across 63.2 innings. He did strike out 72 batters over that stretch, and his high strikeout potential could earn him an opportunity to pitch out of the Brewers' bullpen at some point in 2018. The 31-year-old held his own in his only major-league stint, compiling a 3.12 ERA and 12:1 K:BB across 8.2 innings with the Nationals back in 2013.
Davis was reassigned to minor league camp Friday.
The 30-year-old right-hander limped through 2016 with a 4.13 ERA for the Nationals' Triple-A Syracuse squad but impressed in a short 10-game big-league stint with a 3.12 ERA and 12 strikeouts. Davis' whiffs potential could give him an opportunity with Arizona's bullpen later in 2017.
Davis was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday.
He was designated for assignment last week, but will receive an invite to spring training this year. The 29-year-old notched a 2.65 ERA with 34 strikeouts in 34 innings at Double-A last year, but he was the victim of some bad luck at Triple-A, posting an 8.49 ERA compared to a 3.59 FIP. Look for him to battle for a spot at the front of the Nationals bullpen, but more likely get assigned to Triple-A at the end of spring training.
