Davies was added to the Brewers' NLCS roster versus the Dodgers, taking the place of Gio Gonzalez (ankle).

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez suffered the injury during the second inning of Tuesday's contest. Due to his removal from the active roster, Gonzalez will not be eligible to return for the World Series should Milwaukee advance. Davies was left off the postseason roster for each of the Brewers' first two rounds after compiling a 4.77 ERA and 1.33 WHIP across 66 innings (13 starts) this year.

Davies was left off Milwaukee's roster for the NLDS against Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Craig Counsell elected to add 11 pitchers to the 25-man roster but withheld Davies and fellow starter Chase Anderson from the team. In their absence, multi-inning relief options such as Brandon Woodruff (who is starting Game 1 on Thursday), Freddy Peralta and Junior Guerra were on the roster. Since rosters are able to change after each round of the postseason, there's a chance Davies will be back for the NLCS should the Brewers advance.

Davies didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-5 win over the Tigers, allowing three runs on five hits over four innings while striking out three.

EDGE Analysis

Detroit jumped on him for all three runs in the first inning, but Davies settled down after that and would have been in line for his third win of the year had he been allowed to come back out and complete one more frame. The right-hander will wrap up the regular season with a 4.77 ERA and 49:21 K:BB through 66 innings, and his role on the Brewers' postseason roster -- whether rounding out the back of the rotation or moving into long relief -- has yet to be determined.

Davies (2-7) took the loss Saturday, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk over four innings while striking out three as the Brewers fell 3-0 to the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander remains winless since coming off the DL at the beginning of September -- in fact, Davies has lost five straight decisions dating back to April 29. He'll get one more chance to notch a victory when he takes his 4.65 ERA to the mound at home Friday against the Tigers.

Davies (2-6) took the loss Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk over five innings while striking out three as the Brewers fell 3-1 to the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old isn't providing the Brewers with much length, tossing exactly five innings in each of his first three starts since re-joining the rotation. but his 3.00 ERA and 12:3 K:BB in 15 innings are solid. Davies will look for a better result in his next outing Friday on the road in a rematch with Pittsburgh.

Davies allowed two runs on six hits and one walk across five innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Giants. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Davies allowed a leadoff home run in the first inning before settling down and cruising through the next few frames. He ran into trouble in the fifth, when he allowed a run on two hits and a walk, but he was able to escape with minimal damage done. Davies induced nine groundball outs, which helped offset his lack of swing-and-miss stuff during the outing. He's compiled a 9:2 K:BB across 10 innings since returning from the disabled list and will look to pitch deeper into the game this weekend against the Pirates.

Davies is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Giants, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With manager Craig Counsell announcing that the newly acquired Gio Gonzalez would be added to the rotation over the weekend, the Brewers had to decide whether to keep Davies and Junior Guerra as their No. 5 starter. Davies made the choice an easy one after limiting the Cubs to one run and striking out seven over five innings in Monday's win, marking the right-hander's first start with the big club since May 29. Given Guerra's poor form of late -- he's surrendered 24 runs (18 earned) over 13.1 innings in his last four starts -- Davies should have a decent amount of leash in the rotation even if he disappoints during his next turn.

Davies tossed five innings of one-run ball Monday in a no-decision against the Cubs, allowing four hits with one walk and seven strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Davies made his first big league start since May 29 after recovering from a shoulder injury. He allowed a run after a Lorenzo Cain error in the first inning but bounced back nicely and hardly ran into trouble the rest of the way. Davies was sharp in the outing, throwing 65 percent of his pitches for strikes while notching his second-highest strikeout total of the season. He had already tossed a complete-game shutout during his previous rehab appearance in the minors and should be near full strength at this point. Davies will look to follow up a successful return this weekend against the Giants.

The Brewers recalled Davies from Low-A Wisconsin on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

After spending the minimum 10 days in the minors and tossing a complete-game shutout for Wisconsin on Aug. 27, Davies will rejoin the Brewers and is scheduled to start Monday's series opener against the Cubs. It will mark Davies' first outing with the big club since May 29 after a right rotator cuff injury sidelined him for the better part of three months. With the Brewers acquiring Gio Gonzalez to bolster their starting ranks over the weekend, Davies may need to submit a quality outing Monday in order to preserve his rotation spot throughout the season's final month.

Davies is in line to pitch Monday's series opener against the Cubs, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davies is set to rejoin the Brewers' starting rotation after a shoulder injury robbed him of the past three months. He's currently on Wisconsin's roster at the Low-A level, having recently thrown a nine-inning shutout for the Timber Rattlers in his latest start. This upcoming showdown with the Cubs will mark his first time on a big-league mound since facing off against St. Louis on May 29.
