Davis joins Niemann on the DL

9

August

As expected, rookie righthander Wade Davis was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder sprain following Monday night's game, joining fellow starter Jeff Niemann.

RHP Jeremy Hellickson was officially recalled from Triple-A Durham and will start Tuesday against the Tigers.

Both Davis and Niemann had gone to St. Petersburg to get examined by Dr. Koco Eaton and undergo an MRI, as both had experienced soreness in the back of their throwing shoulders.

Manager Joe Maddon said before the game that he anticipated any DL stint of Niemann or Davis to be minimal and precautionary.
