Davis making little progress on DL

Davis making little progress on DL

|
MILWAUKEE -- Brewers left-hander Doug Davis' stay on the 15-day disabled list has no end in sight.

Davis is still bothered by tendinitis in his left elbow and has not pitched since July 9, when he returned from a separate stint on the DL caused by pericarditis, a painful swelling of the tissue around the heart. An MRI scan of Davis' elbow revealed no structural damage, but the inflammation has yet to subside.

"It's not getting any worse," Davis said. "It's not getting any better, either. I'll go a few days feeling great and say, 'OK, here we go.' Then I wake up the next morning all stiff. I just can't get over that hump."

The Brewers signed Davis in January for a second stint in Milwaukee partially because of his durability, but have gotten only eight starts and 38 1/3 innings out of him so far.
