Davies (shoulder, back) suffered another setback in his rehab Friday, as his back tightened up during a throwing session, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Craig Counsell acknowledged that the Brewers would need to take a more conservative approach with Davies' rehab, and at this point it seems possible that we may not see him back in a big-league game before August or even September. Brent Suter hit the disabled list with forearm tightness, so it seems that Milwaukee will really need to lean on their young starting pitchers in the short term before potentially adding reinforcements at the trade deadline.

Davies' (shoulder) rehab start Friday for Low-A Wisconsin was cut short due to a lower-back ailment, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He exited the start after 48 pitches, well short of the 80 pitches or seven innings the Brewers had planned for Davies to achieve in what could have been his final rehab start before rejoining the big-league rotation. After this setback, Davies is now without a clear timetable to resume his rehab assignment. This means Brent Suter and Freddy Peralta will stick in the big-league rotation for now.

Davies (shoulder) is on track to rejoin the Brewers' rotation next week, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

When asked Tuesday Davies said his shoulder feels "great," which provides optimism that he has moved past the soreness that has plagued him since early May. Davies is set to make one more rehab start Friday with Low-A Wisconsin, and as long as all goes well that day, he will take the bump for the Brewers around the middle of next week and likely bump Freddy Peralta from the rotation.

Davies (shoulder) threw 57 pitches over 4.1 innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Davies tossed just 31 pitches and 1.2 innings in a rehab start with Colorado Springs on June 19, but he was able to up both numbers his second time out. Davies was expected to make at least three rehab starts before rejoining the Brewers, so look for an update on his status after he takes the ball again later this week.

Davies (shoulder) will start a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davies completed another successful bullpen session Saturday and is now on tap for at least three rehab starts. The Brewers seem to be exercising additional caution as the 25-year-old makes a return from rotator cuff inflammation for the second time, giving him a likely return date in early July if he avoids any setbacks.

Davies (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Wednesday without issue, but is several weeks away from returning to the Brewers' rotation, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com.

EDGE Analysis

Details regarding Davies' recovery from his latest setback have been minimal up to this point, but on the heels of a successful throwing session Wednesday, manager Craig Counsell indicated that Davies would throw "several mound sessions" then make "2-3 rehab starts" before coming off the disabled list. That likely pushes Davies' return date to sometime in July, but a better estimate will be able to be made once he is sent out on an official rehab assignment.

Davies (shoulder) will not return from the 10-day disabled list during this weekend's series in Philadelphia, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

There was a possibility that Davies would be back in action for Sunday's series finale but the club announced that he won't be an option to rejoin the rotation just yet. The right-hander went down with right rotator cuff inflammation following his start against the Cardinals on May 29. Outside of this update, the Brewers have remained relatively quiet regarding his status, but a plan for his return should come into focus in the near future. In his place, Freddy Peralta could make another spot start after tossing 6.1 scoreless innings for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.

The Brewers placed Davies on the 10-day disabled list Friday with right rotator cuff inflammation.

EDGE Analysis

Davies mentioned he was dealing with some shoulder soreness after his last start, and the Brewers are in the midst of an eight-day stretch in which they play just five games, so the club decided to place him on the disabled list to give him ample recovery time without taking up a roster spot. Neither Davies nor the Brewers have expressed much concern about Davies' setback, so as long as he is just dealing with only soreness and nothing worse, he figures to rejoin Milwaukee's rotation on or around June 9, the first day he is eligible to be activated from the DL.

Davies mentioned after his start Tuesday that he felt some lingering soreness in his shoulder thanks to a comebacker that struck him in his previous start, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davies did not blame his struggles in two starts since returning from the disabled list on the injury, but he did say "everything hasn't felt great" his last two times out. Given that he took the ball Tuesday it would seem he will be good to go for his next scheduled start, but the shoulder soreness leaves him day-to-day for now. While Davies isn't leaning on the injury, he would certainly stand to benefit to some degree from getting back to 100 percent.

Davies (shoulder) was activated ahead of Thursday's start against the Mets, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Davies had already been confirmed for this start, so the activation was simply a procedural move. He logged a 4.24 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 25:12 K:BB in 34 innings (six starts) prior to landing on the DL. Brandon Woodruff was optioned to Triple-A as a corresponding move.
