Davies (1-2) picked up the win over the Reds on Wednesday, firing 6.1 scoreless innings and scattering three hits and two walks while striking out two.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers defense committed three errors behind him, but the right-hander was able to escape every jam it created before turning things over to Dan Jennings and Jacob Barnes to complete the shutout. Davies has had a roller-coaster start to the season, recording two quality starts and two ugly ones in four outings, but he'll try to break that pattern Tuesday in Kansas City.

Davies gave up five earned runs in 4.1 innings on seven hits, striking out four and walking two as the Brewers fell to the Mets 6-5 on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It was a disappointing showing for the right-hander coming off a solid start where he limited the Cubs to just one run over six innings and struck out eight. Opponents are hitting .306 off him so far this year and he's got a bloated 6.75 ERA, so Davies is probably in the streaming tier of starting pitchers until he shows he's regained his solid form of last year, when he had a 3.90 ERA and 17 wins in 191.1 innings. If there is a silver lining to his uneven start to the campaign, he does have a solid 18:5 K:BB through his first 16 innings.

Davies (0-1) had to settle for a no-decision in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Cubs, allowing one run on four hits and three walks over six innings while striking out eight.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander's only real mistake resulted in a Kris Bryant solo shot in the sixth inning, and Davies was in line for the win before the Brewers' bullpen -- without Corey Knebel (hamstring) -- fell apart in the ninth. Davies now has an impressive 14:3 K:BB through his first 13.2 innings heading into Friday's road start against the Mets.

Davies (0-1) was touched up for seven runs (six earned) on eight hits despite six strikeouts over 5.2 innings Monday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Davies was undone in a fifth inning by a home run by his counterpart for the Cardinals, starter Miles Mikolas. Everything was sharp for Davies until he approached that third time through the order. Davies showed top-half-of-the-rotation quality at times for the Brewers in 2017, but he'll have to show he can be more consistent if he is to take the next step in 2018.

Davies will start the Brewers' home opener, Monday, Apr. 2 against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Davies will throw one more before the exhibition season comes to a close, but it has already been a successful spring for him outside of a brief hiccup with an oblique injury. Davies has shown no ill effects of the injury, giving up just one earned run in 8.1 innings over two outings since returning to game action. While his first regular-season start will not come until the Brewers' fourth game, he was pushed back intentionally to give him the honor of starting the first game in Milwaukee in 2018, and is locked into the starting rotation as long as he stays healthy.

Davies (oblique) allowed one run on four hits and a walk while striking out three batters in 3.1 innings Saturday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Davies, who missed his previous start due to an oblique strain, looked solid in his return to Cactus League action. He now owns a 4.26 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 6:3 K:BB across 6.1 spring training innings. Barring any setbacks throughout the remainder of spring, Davies is expected to start the team's home opener against the Cardinals on April 2, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Davies (oblique) will pitch in Saturday's Cactus League game against the Rockies, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davies was able to get through three innings of an intrasquad game Monday with no issues, clearing the way for him to rejoin the Brewers' rotation over the weekend. Assuming he gets through Saturday's contest as planned, Davies should be on track to be ready for the start of the season. If this is the case, he would likely get the ball during the Brewers' opening series against the Padres.

Davies (oblique) is expected to throw a simulated game within the next few days and then toe the rubber in a Cactus League contest barring any setbacks, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davies stated that he had no issues with the oblique during his bullpen session Friday and that everything "felt great." Though he's not completely out of the woods just yet, it seems likely that Davies will be fully operational come Opening Day. More should be known following his upcoming simulated game, including a date for his next Cactus League outing.

Davies will continue his normal throwing program Thursday before testing his oblique during a bullpen session Friday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

On Wednesday, manager Craig Counsell said that Davies is expected to miss one Cactus League start due to a minor left oblique strain. Davies has remained in good spirits, stating that he's feeling "really good" and that he isn't concerned about the injury. The right-hander added that he plans to "cut it loose" Friday, as he would rather test if now than have a setback closer to the season, according to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy.

Davies is set to miss one Cactus League start due to a minor left oblique strain, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Craig Counsell stated that this injury isn't considered serious but the club will stress precaution with the right-hander as Opening Day looms just three weeks away. Davies posted a 3.90 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over a career-high 191.1 innings last season, and was able to find a groove in the second-half of the campaign to cement a spot in the Brewers' rotation for 2018.
