Davies (shoulder) will start a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Davies completed another successful bullpen session Saturday and is now on tap for at least three rehab starts. The Brewers seem to be exercising additional caution as the 25-year-old makes a return from rotator cuff inflammation for the second time in the last month, giving him a likely return date in early July if he avoids any setbacks.
Details regarding Davies' recovery from his latest setback have been minimal up to this point, but on the heels of a successful throwing session Wednesday, manager Craig Counsell indicated that Davies would throw "several mound sessions" then make "2-3 rehab starts" before coming off the disabled list. That likely pushes Davies' return date to sometime in July, but a better estimate will be able to be made once he is sent out on an official rehab assignment.
Davies (shoulder) will not return from the 10-day disabled list during this weekend's series in Philadelphia, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
There was a possibility that Davies would be back in action for Sunday's series finale but the club announced that he won't be an option to rejoin the rotation just yet. The right-hander went down with right rotator cuff inflammation following his start against the Cardinals on May 29. Outside of this update, the Brewers have remained relatively quiet regarding his status, but a plan for his return should come into focus in the near future. In his place, Freddy Peralta could make another spot start after tossing 6.1 scoreless innings for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.
Davies mentioned he was dealing with some shoulder soreness after his last start, and the Brewers are in the midst of an eight-day stretch in which they play just five games, so the club decided to place him on the disabled list to give him ample recovery time without taking up a roster spot. Neither Davies nor the Brewers have expressed much concern about Davies' setback, so as long as he is just dealing with only soreness and nothing worse, he should miss just one start, and figures to rejoin Milwaukee's rotation on or around June 9, the first day he is eligible to be activated from the DL.
Davies mentioned after his start Tuesday that he felt some lingering soreness in his shoulder thanks to a comebacker that struck him in his previous start, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Davies did not blame his struggles in two starts since returning from the disabled list on the injury, but he did say "everything hasn't felt great" his last two times out. Given that he took the ball Tuesday it would seem he will be good to go for his next scheduled start, but the shoulder soreness leaves him day-to-day for now. While Davies isn't leaning on the injury, he would certainly stand to benefit to some degree from getting back to 100 percent.
