Brewers agree to deal with Doug Davis

Adam McCalvy of is reporting that the Brewers have come to terms on a deal with free agent left-hander Doug Davis on a one year deal with an option for a second. Davis, a former Brewer, owns a career 4.31 ERA over the course of 11 seasons with the Rangers, Blue Jays, Brewers, and Diamondbacks.

This move may push Manny Parra out of the starting rotation considering he would make three lefties, who all have fairly similar styles, in the same rotation. As of now, it will probably look something like this:

RHP Yovani Gallardo

LHP Randy Wolf

RHP Jeff Suppan

LHP Doug Davis

RHP Dave Bush

The Brewers have accomplished their main goal this offseason of improving their starting rotation, and should find themselves in better contention come July and August than last year.
