"It's bittersweet, but they make the moves," said Davis, who hit .188 in his brief big league debut. "They explained the situation, and the role I was in is tough. I see why. I haven't faced a lot of these cats, and when vets get this job, it's a little easier because they have been around. You put a lot of pressure on yourself. It's hard to just take it for what it is."
The Brewers still envision a bright future for Davis, who is the 15th ranked Brewers prospect. He is expected to join the Nashville Sounds on Friday in Round Rock, Tex.
