The Milwaukee Brewers recalled outfielder Khris Davis from Triple-A Nashville following Thursday’s 5-3 loss to Arizona, filling the void on the roster created by Ryan Braun’s placement on the bereavement list.
Davis, 25, rejoins the Brewers for his second stint with the big league team. After making the club out of spring training, Davis was sent to Nashville on May 2.
A power surge during spring training led to Davis surprisingly earning his way onto the Opening Day roster, but he struggled to adjust to a bench role.
In 14 games with Milwaukee, Davis hit .188 with just three hits, no RBI and eight strikeouts in 16 at-bats. Davis is hitting .250 with 11 HR and 29 RBI in Triple-A.
Davis returned to the Nashville lineup Wednesday after missing five days with a hamstring injury. Joining the Brewers in time for Friday’s game in Arizona, Davis will get to play close to his hometown of Glendale, Ariz.
