Davies to miss his next start
Brewers pitcher Zach Davies will miss his next spring start with a strained left oblique muscle. Manager Craig Counsell said he still expects Davies to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Davies reported discomfort in his left side after his outing on Saturday against Colorado.
Davies went 17-9 last season with a 3.90 ERA. He was the only Brewers starter not to miss a start, making 33 of them last season.
