First baseman Chris Davis had his right shoulder examined earlier today by Dr. Lewis Yocum, who has cleared his schedule in case the Orioles need him.
Yocum confirmed the original diagnosis that Davis has a small tear in his right shoulder. The plan for now is to have Davis rehab it rather than undergo surgery.
Davis was placed on the 15-day disabled list after being scratched from Tuesday’s lineup because of continuing soreness in the shoulder. At that moment, doubts rose whether Davis would play again this season.
We’ll know more as Davis’ rehab progresses, but I guess this constitutes good news. He’s not scheduled for surgery and his season hasn’t officially ended.
