Davis cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.
Davis unsurprisingly went unclaimed on waivers, as he's 29 years old and has just 39 big-league plate appearances under his belt. He'll remain as organizational depth for the Cubs.
Davis was designated for assignment Saturday.
Davis was removed from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for Danny Hultzen, whose contract was purchased in a corresponding move. The 29-year-old has just 39 career big-league plate appearances and is unlikely to be a particularly desirable player on the waiver wire.
Davis was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The Cubs were carrying four healthy catchers, so Davis probably benefits more from being at Triple-A for the Iowa Cubs' playoff run than to ride the bench in the majors. Once Iowa's season is over, he will likely head back up to the majors.
Davis was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Sunday.
Davis will join the Cubs as part of the September roster expansion and will provide catching depth behind Victor Caratini and Jonathan Lucroy while Willson Contreras (hamstring) remains on the injured list.
Davis was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.
Davis is no longer needed with the big club, as Jonathan Lucroy, who signed with the Cubs on Wednesday, is set to join the team ahead of Thursday's series opener in Cincinnati. The backstop went hitless in three at-bats during his most recent stint with Chicago.
Davis was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Sunday.
Davis rejoins the Cubs on Sunday with the team placing Willson Contreras on the injured list with a hamstring strain. The 29-year-old should serve as the backup to Victor Caratini behind the plate while Contreras remains sidelined.
Davis is likely to be recalled Sunday, Bruce Miles of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Willson Contreras left Saturday's game against the Brewers with what appears to be a hamstring injury. He hasn't been placed on the injured list yet, but a move is expected, and he's least expected to be out until undergoing an MRI on Monday, so the Cubs will need another catcher. Davis will likely back up Victor Caratini until Contreras returns to action.
Davis was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
Davis is no longer needed at the big-league level with Victor Caratini back from the injured list. The backstop appeared in six games during his time with the big club, going 3-for-15 with a homer and four RBI.
Davis went 1-for-3 with a grand slam in a 6-5 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.
Davis, who was called up Friday from Triple-A Iowa, brought the Cubs back from a 5-1 deficit with his fourth-inning shot off Michael Wacha. The 29-year-old has only received 23 major-league at-bats spread over three seasons and the home run was the first of his career. He is expected to serve as the team's No. 2 catcher during Victor Caratini's absence.
Davis was called up from Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.
Victor Caratini will undergo surgery on his fractured left hand and be out 4-to-6 weeks, prompting Davis to be recalled. The 29-year-old has played in 13 games with the Cubs over the last two seasons, and is now set to serve as the team's No. 2 catcher behind Willson Contreras.
Davis was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.
Davis has appeared in 13 game for the Cubs over the last two seasons and had no clear path to an Opening Day roster spot with Willson Contreras and Victor Caratini both healthy. The 29-year-old is ticketed for another season at Iowa, where he has a .285/.352/.396 slash line across the last four seasons.
Davis' contract was selected by the Cubs on Saturday.
Davis appeared in eight games for the Cubs last season, going 2-for-13 in his only big-league experience to date. He'll be the Cubs' third catcher for at least a few days, but with Bobby Wilson nearing a return from an ankle injury, he'll soon be relegated to an even smaller role.
Davis played catch Saturday for the first time since suffering a concussion in batting practice last week, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
Davis said Wednesday that he felt "like a human being" for the first time since suffering the concussion, and throwing is another good step for the 27-year-old. He will likely be able to return to Cactus League action in the coming days.
Davis is expected to resume baseball activities Saturday after suffering a concussion during batting practice last Friday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
Davis said that Wednesday was the first day that he felt "like a human being" after battling concussion-type symptoms for the better part of the past week. The 27-year-old will likely need a little more time before returning to Cactus League games.
Davis signed a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with the Cubs on Friday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Davis was recently non-tendered by the Cubs at the beginning of the month, but the club will bring him back on a minor-league deal after he spent most of the 2017 season with Triple-A Iowa. During that time, he slashed .297/.357/.429 with six home runs and 62 RBI. He wound up playing in eight games for the big-league team as well, but there won't be much use for him at the major-league level with Willson Contreras and Victor Caratini on the roster.
The Cubs declined to tender Davis a contract for 2018, Bruce Miles of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Davis wasn't actually arbitration eligible, but the Cubs cut him loose anyway, having decided that he was not worthy of a 40-man spot. He slashed .297/.357/.429 with six homers and zero stolen bases in 102 games at Triple-A Iowa as a 27-year-old last season.
