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.
The Blue Jays optioned Davis to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Bullpen depth was a greater priority for the Blue Jays heading into their series finale with the Orioles than having an extra outfielder on hand, so Davis will cede his spot on the active roster to reliever Justin Shafer. Davis' stay with the big club lasted just two days, with the 27-year-old going 0-for-1 in his lone plate appearance.
Davis was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Davis was sent down to Buffalo in early June but makes his way back to the majors with Lourdes Gurriel (wrist) and Randal Grichuk (back) nursing injuries. Davis struggled during his first stint with the Blue Jays this season and posted a .143/.176/.204 slash line in 51 plate appearances.
Davis was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.
Davis never found his footing with the big club, slashing just .143/.176/.204 with one homer and one stolen base in 17 appearances for Toronto. As such, he'll return to the minors to smooth some kinks out before potentially rejoining the Blue Jays at a later point this season. Teoscar Hernandez was recalled from Buffalo in a corresponding move.
Davis isn't in Tuesday's starting lineup against the Yankees.
Davis has already received two days off in June, with his last start dating back to Saturday in Colorado. Randal Grichuk will move over to center field and Cavin Biggio draws the start in right with Davis on the bench.
Davis is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Davis' move to the bench ends a stretch of five straight starts, during which he went 3-for-14. That modest showing at the plate actually improved Davis' season slash line to .143/.176/.204 through 51 plate appearances, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Blue Jays soon pulled the plug on him as an everyday player. Randal Grichuk will fill in for Davis in center field in the series finale.
Davis went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 8-3 loss to the Rays.
He took Hunter Wood deep in the seventh inning for his first career homer, and his first extra-base hit in 12 games this year since his promotion. Davis' .128/.128/.205 slash line remains extremely poor, and the clock could be ticking on his current stint in the majors.
Davis went 0-for-2 with a strikeout before being pinch hit for by Billy McKinney in Wednesday's extra-innings loss to the Red Sox.
The 27-year-old outfielder has looked lost at the plate since his promotion, going 3-for-29 (.103) with an 0:10 BB:K. Davis does have a steal and a run scored in his nine games, but he's still looking for his first extra-base hit, and it may not be long before he's headed back to Triple-A Buffalo so the Jays can get a look at another outfielder.
Davis was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo and is starting in center field and batting ninth Friday against the White Sox.
Davis has put together a .306/.493/.633 slash line with four homers and nine RBI over 16 contests with the Bisons this year, earning him a promotion to the big leagues. He appeared in 20 games for Toronto a season ago but struggled to a .200 average with three stolen bases.
