Davis progressing, but misses sixth straight start

ST. LOUIS -- Thursday brought more progress for Brewers outfielder Khris Davis, who tested his sore left wrist with three rounds of batting practice in the field and moved a big step closer to rejoining the starting lineup.

Still, he missed a sixth straight start.

"It's just mental," Davis said. "You just try to remember how it feels, that good feeling, that positive feeling. Just try to stay positive every day, because it's easy to get negative when you're fighting it."

Manager Ron Roenicke is eager to restore Davis' power to the starting lineup. He is batting .298 with nine home runs and 21 RBIs in 33 games since replacing the suspended Ryan Braun on the Brewers' roster.
