Davis sustains left shoulder strain vs. Jays

TORONTO -- Brewers left fielder Khris Davis injured his left shoulder diving into second base in the seventh inning of Tuesday's 4-1 loss, and he was unsure of his availability for Wednesday's series finale against the Blue Jays.

The official diagnosis from the team was a left shoulder strain, but Davis referred to discomfort in his pectoral muscle. He planned to ice the spot throughout Tuesday evening, and he left Rogers Centre with a portable device that delivers electrical stimulation to muscles.

"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, who reached after being hit by a Drew Hutchison pitch in the seventh inning, broke for second base with Carlos Gomez at third and was able to get to second despite Hutchison's pickoff throw. Davis winced at second base after evading Jose Reyes' tag on the play, giving the Brewers runners at second and third with one out in a game they trailed, 2-1. After Jean Segura's flyout to right field ended the scoreless threat, Elian Herrera took Davis' place on defense.

"I've heard of guys separating, dislocating shoulders [while] diving, but I don't think it was anything like that," Davis said. "It was just a grabbing, tightening up, cramping."

In his first full Major League season, Davis has appeared in 78 of the Brewers' first 85 games, including 75 starts in left field. He entered Tuesday with 32 RBIs since May 19, the most in the National League.
