5/16 Congrats to Doug Davis
Doug Davis, who made his first start for the Cubs on Saturday, was not with the team in Cincinnati so he could be with his wife, who gave birth on Sunday. Davis’ next scheduled start will be Friday against the Red Sox.
“He gave us five pretty good innings — go have your baby and we’ll see you in Boston,” Cubs manager Mike Quade said.
Davis was expected to rejoin the Cubs either Tuesday or Wednesday.
