Doug Davis was limited to just eight starts last season with the Brewers due to a heart problem and an elbow injury which eventually required surgery. The good news is that he’s now back to full health and ready to put himself back out there for MLB teams.
Steve Canter, the agent for Davis, tells Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com that the 35-year-old southpaw will audition for teams in Tempe, Arizona next Thursday.
Davis is currently working his way back from surgery last October to repair a small tear in his flexor tendon. Canter tells Crasnick that Davis is ”feeling great” and has already been throwing for about two and a half months.
It’s nice to hear Davis is healthy again, as I have always found him a pretty easy guy to root for, but just how useful he can be to an MLB team is up for debate. Never known for his command (4.4 BB/9 for his career), you could usually mark him down for around 200 innings per season in the past. Not sure you can do that at this point.
