Brewers Injury Update: Khris Davis exits with apparent shoulder strain

By on 7/02/2014 09:00:00 AM

The Milwaukee Brewers may have lost one of their big power bats for at least a few games as outfielder Khris Davis sustained what is being described as a left shoulder strain during Tuesday night's loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.'s Adam McCalvy reports that Davis was hurt when stealing second base in the seventh inning, diving in to beat the tag by Jose Reyes but coming up in pain.

Although the team called the injury a left shoulder strain, Davis told McCalvy that he felt the pain in his pectoral muscle:
"I felt my pec make a grabbing sensation, and it wouldn't let go," Davis said. "It came back when I started running, like swinging my arm up. We'll see how I feel tomorrow."
Davis added that he did not think the injury felt like a separation or dislocation. The team should know more when they see how he responds on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old slugged an impressive .596 in his debut, 153 plate appearance stint last year. While the power has not continued to quite such a high level, he is still slugging .490 and has 21 doubles and 14 home runs through 318 plate appearances. Those numbers put him first on the team in home runs and second in doubles (behind Jonathan Lucroy). Milwaukee will hope that he can return in a day or two as he has been an important part of the offensive success that has led to a NL-leading 51-34 record.
