Davis (paternity) was transferred to the restricted list Friday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Davis has been on the paternity list since Tuesday, and his move to the restricted list will allow him to spend a few more days with his family. The 29-year-old is expected to rejoin the Blue Jays in the coming days.
Davis was placed on the paternity list prior to Tuesday's game against the Yankees.
Davis will be away from the team for Tuesday's game and can remain on the paternity list for up to three days. The move shouldn't have a large impact on Toronto, as Davis has served as an extra outfielder for the club. Infielder Santiago Espinal was recalled in a corresponding roster move.
Davis went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs in Sunday's 18-4 win over the Red Sox.
Though he didn't account for any of the Blue Jays' Fenway Park-record-tying eight home runs on the day, Davis benefited from the top-to-bottom dominance of the Toronto lineup. He scored two runs for only the second time all season while exceeding his total (one) from the Blue Jays' prior 10 games this month. Though he picked up the start in center field Sunday, Davis is expected to serve primarily as a fourth or fifth outfielder while all of Lourdes Gurriel, Teoscar Hernandez and Randal Grichuk are healthy.
Davis isn't in the lineup Wednesday against Miami.
Davis has lost out on playing time recently and will be out of the lineup for the sixth time in the last eight games. Randal Grichuk will shift to center field while Teoscar Hernandez starts in right.
Davis isn't starting Tuesday's game against the Marlins.
Davis will get a breather after he went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run in Sunday's nightcap. Randal Grichuk will start in center field while Teoscar Hernandez takes over in right.
Davis isn't starting the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees.
Davis recently drew six straight starts, but he'll now be excluded from the lineup for a second straight game. Lourdes Gurriel, Randal Grichuk and Teoscar Hernandez will start in the outfield from left to right.
Davis will start in center field and bat ninth Sunday against the Rays.
The Blue Jays appear to value the defense Davis provides in center field, as he'll be manning the position for the fifth game in a row. He could be in store for steady work in the outfield until George Springer (quadriceps) is back from the injured list, but aside from providing the occasional stolen base, Davis probably can't be counted on to provide much production from a fantasy standpoint. Over 209 career plate appearances in the majors, Davis is slashing .197/.300/.292.
Davis went 1-for-1 with a double, a stolen base and a run scored as a pinch hitter in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Atlanta.
Davis entered the game in the seventh as a defensive substitution and wound up kicking off a three-run eighth with a leadoff double and eventually came around to score on an RBI single by Vladimir Guerrero. The 29-year-old was first to bat once again in the ninth and reached base after getting hit by a pitch. He ended up stealing second but was left stranded. Davis figures to remain with the big-league club while George Springer (quadriceps) is on the injured list but won't see any regular action unless another one of the team's starting outfielders gets hurt.
Davis was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The 28-year-old was demoted last week with George Springer (quadriceps) returning from the injured list, and he'll rejoin the team with Springer aggravating his injury. Davis should operate as Toronto's fourth outfielder with Lourdes Gurriel, Randal Grichuk and Teoscar Hernandez set to handle the everyday roles in the outfield.
Davis was optioned to the alternate training site Friday.
The 29-year-old made the Opening Day roster but will head to the alternate site with George Springer active and Teoscar Hernandez (COVID-19) returning from the injured list. Davis is unlikely to be a factor in the outfield for the Blue Jays while Springer, Hernandez, Lourdes Gurriel and Randal Grichuk remain healthy.
Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a second run scored and a stolen base in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals.
The 28-year-old came into Saturday looking for his first hit of the season, and Davis made it a loud one when he turned on a Mike Minor offering in the fifth inning and rang it off the left-field foul pole. He got rewarded with another start in the nightcap but went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts, and Davis' narrow window for playing time will close once George Springer (quad) and Teoscar Hernandez (COVID-19) are ready to return.
Davis will begin the regular season in the majors, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Davis spent the final month of the 2020 season in the majors, and he secured a spot on the Opening Day roster in 2021 after slashing .323/.432/.484 with one home run, four RBI and three stolen bases in 16 Grapefruit League games. He'll serve as outfield depth for Toronto to begin the regular season.
Davis entered Saturday's game against the Mets in the eighth inning as a pinch runner for Joe Panik and stole second base.
Blue Jays.manager Charlie Montoyo opted to sub in Davis as a pinch runner in the eighth and then utilize his speed in the outfield to finish out the game. Davis should continue to serve as an outfield depth option and speed specialist for the Blue Jays while receiving an occasional start.
Davis went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Yankees.
Davis took J.A. Happ deep in the second inning, providing the Blue Jays with the only offense they'd need to secure a win. It was his first home run of the season and third of his career. Davis will get a chance for some playing time with Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) sidelined, but it will likely come primarily against southpaws in relief of Derek Fisher.
Davis was recalled by the Blue Jays on Monday.
Davis spent the start of the season at alternate camp after missing a portion of camp for an undisclosed reason. He should fill a depth role in the outfield after Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Davis (undisclosed) was activated off the injured list and optioned to the Blue Jays' alternate training site Sunday.
Davis missed the start of summer camp with an undisclosed issue, but he reported during the second week of July and is now fully clear of the issue. The 28-year-old could join the Blue Jays later in the season if they need some outfield depth.
Davis (undisclosed) joined Blue Jays camp Monday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Davis landed on the 10-day injured list with an undisclosed issue in early July and remains on the list even though he's been cleared to link up with his teammates. It's not clear whether he'll have time to get in game shape by Opening Day, though he's buried down the outfield depth chart and isn't likely to fill a significant role even when healthy.
The Blue Jays placed Davis on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to an unspecified issue.
Davis was one of four Blue Jays placed on the IL, with no explanation given for any of the transactions. The move is retroactive to June 30, so if deemed healthy, Davis would be eligible to return from the IL before the Blue Jays begin their season July 23 or 24. The 28-year-old is expected to serve as a backup outfielder for Toronto in 2020 after spending the bulk of the 2019 campaign at Triple-A Buffalo, with whom he slashed .262/.382/.449 with 10 home runs and 13 steals over 352 plate appearances.
Davis went 3-for-13 (.231) with all three hits going for extra bases (two doubles, one home run) in Grapefruit League play.
The athletic 27-year-old also stole a base on his only attempt. Davis was in camp competing for the 26th-man role on the big-league roster, but given that the Jays have two other outfielders out of minor-league options in Derek Fisher and Anthony Alford, Davis is expected to be at Triple-A Buffalo once again when the regular season begins.
Davis was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.
Davis has received 52 big-league plate appearances this season, hitting .140/.173/.200. He's fared far better for Buffalo, hitting .262/.382/.449.
