  • Tigers' Jonathan Davis: Sent out to minors camp

    The Tigers reassigned Davis to minor-league camp Monday.

    With Akil Baddoo getting sent out to Triple-A Toledo and with Davis getting reassigned, Detroit appears set to enter the regular season with Riley Greene, Austin Meadows Matt Vierling, Kerry Carpenter and utility men Zach McKinstry and Ryan Kreidler as its options in the outfield. Davis, who slashed .224/.344/.237 in 91 plate appearances in the majors with Milwaukee in 2022, is likely to join Baddoo in Toledo to begin the 2023 campaign.

  • Tigers' Jonathan Davis: Gets NRI deal with Detroit

    Davis agreed Monday with the Tigers on a minor-league contract and received an invitation to MLB spring training, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Davis played 37 games in the majors for the Brewers in 2022, putting together a .224/.344/.237 slash line across 91 plate appearances. The 30-year-old outfielder will have an outside chance of winning a bench spot with the Tigers if he performs well in the Grapefruit League.

  • Jonathan Davis: Hits open market

    Davis was released by the Brewers on Friday.

    Davis had his contract selected by Milwaukee in June and played in 37 games before he was outrighted off the 40-man roster in September. The 30-year-old posted a .224/.344/.237 slash line with four RBI and seven stolen bases in 91 plate appearances.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Activated and outrighted

    The Brewers reinstated Davis (elbow) from the 10-day injured list Sunday and outrighted him to Triple-A Nashville.

    Though Milwaukee never officially announced the transaction, the veteran outfielder was apparently exposed to waivers upon being activated from the IL and will stay in the organization after going unclaimed. Before being placed on the IL on Aug. 27 with a right elbow effusion, Davis logged a .224/.344/.237 slash line over 91 plate appearances for Milwaukee on the season.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Beginning rehab

    Davis (elbow) was sent to High-A Wisconsin on Friday to begin his rehab assignment.

    Davis has been on the 10-day injured list since Aug. 27 due to a right elbow effusion. His playing time could be limited upon his return to the Brewers with Garrett Mitchell seemingly taking over the center field spot in his absence.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Out with elbow injury

    Davis was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow effusion Saturday.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Swipes seventh bag

    Davis went 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in a 7-6 win Tuesday against Minnesota.

    Davis walked in the second and singled and stole second in the fourth. In the eighth inning, with two on and one out, Victor Caratini pinch hit for Davis against Jhoan Duran.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Moves into reserve role

    Davis is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies.

    Davis made seven consecutive starts in center field to finish out the Brewers' first-half schedule, but he's moved into a fourth outfielder role coming out of the All-Star break with Tyrone Taylor (concussion) having returned from the injured list. For the third time in the four-game set with Colorado to open the second half, Davis finds himself on the bench.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Mixed results on basepaths

    Davis went 0-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Brewers.

    Davis walked and stole second base with one out in the eighth inning. After Christian Yelich struck out, Davis tried his luck for another steal attempt, only to get caught at third to end the Brewers' rally. That may have been costly, as the Giants scored the go-ahead run in their half of the frame. Davis had notched six consecutive steals before he was caught Saturday. The outfielder has added a .232/.348/.250 slash line with three RBI, eight runs scored and a double through 67 plate appearances, though two of his three multi-hit efforts this year have come in his last six games as he starts to see steadier playing time. Saturday was his sixth straight start in center field, though that position may close up again once Tyrone Taylor (concussion) returns from his rehab assignment after the All-Star break.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Swipes fifth bag

    Davis went 1-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in a 6-3 win Tuesday in Minnesota.

    In the sixth, Davis drove in a run with a single, stole second base and came around to score on Willy Adames' homer. The stolen base was his fifth of the season and fourth in July. He's started 13 of the last 17 games in center field for Milwaukee, hitting ninth in the lineup each time. The 30-year-old has never had more than 103 big-league plate appearances in a season and has a chance to eclipse that mark for the first time in 2022.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Added to Tuesday's lineup

    Davis was added to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins, according to Adam McCalvy of

    Davis was set to come off the bench Tuesday, but he will join the fray with Christian Yelich scratched due to a sore back. Davis was looking at a decline in playing time with fellow outfielder Hunter Renfroe back in action, but that could change if Yelich misses any further time.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Swipes fourth base

    Davis went 2-for-3 with a double, a stolen base and two runs scored in an 8-6 loss Sunday against Pittsburgh.

    Davis singled, stole second and scored in the third and doubled and scored in the fifth. He was removed for a pinch hitter in the ninth inning with David Bednar on the mound. It was Davis' first multi-hit game since his season debut June 18, and the double was his first extra-base hit of the season.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Sitting once again

    Davis isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Pirates.

    Davis started in the first six games of the month but will take a seat for a second consecutive matchup Saturday. Andrew McCutchen is shifting to center field while Keston Hiura serves as the designated hitter.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Steps out of lineup

    Davis is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Davis started the past six games with Tyrone Taylor (concussion) and Hunter Renfroe (calf) sidelined, but he'll take a seat Friday after going 2-for-18 with four walks, two runs and two stolen bases. Andrew McCutchen will move to center field while Keston Hiura serves as the designated hitter.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Could be fixture in lineup

    Davis will start in center field and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    After Hunter Renfroe (calf) landed on the 10-day injured list June 26, Davis appeared to settle into a short-side platoon role in the outfield with Jace Peterson, but both Davis and Peterson look as though they'll have an opportunity to play on a near-everyday basis in the short term. Tyrone Taylor (concussion) joined Renfroe on the IL on Sunday, creating openings in center and right field that will most likely be filled by Davis and Peterson until one of the two injured outfielders is activated. Davis is a strong defender with good speed, but a weak bat and an expected placement near the bottom of the Milwaukee lineup likely won't lend itself to much fantasy value.

  • Brewers' Jonathan Davis: Back in lineup Friday

    Davis (back/ribs) is starting in center field and batting ninth in Friday's series opener against the Pirates.

    After crashing into the outfield wall Wednesday, Davis was forced to miss the remainder of that contest and was also unavailable for Thursday's loss. He will now return to the lineup in center field, where he will fill in for Tyrone Taylor.
