Davis making progress

After a bit of a scare at the start of the Brewers’ last homestand, left-hander Doug Davis is back to making positive progress in his return from a chest condition and hopes to return from the disabled list sometime during the second half of June.
Davis was sidelined by pericarditis, a painful inflammation of the lining around the heart. He had a recurrence of chest pain on May 24 but resumed throwing on May 26 for five consecutive days with no issues. He took Monday off, and played catch again on Tuesday at Sun Life Stadium. 
He is scheduled for another check-up on Monday that will include an electrocardiogram. The results will dictate whether Davis begins a program of mound work that will likely culminate with a Minor League rehabilitation start or two. 
“I’ve been doing a little bit more every day,” Davis said. “If the EKG is normal, then I can throw off a mound and get ready for rehab. I don’t know how long it will take. It’s not up to me. … Right now, I’m progressing pretty well. I feel good.”
