The Milwaukee Brewers placed Jonathan Davis on the injured list with right elbow swelling and called up fellow outfielder Garrett Mitchell to the majors for the first time.

Davis, 30, is batting .224 with four RBIs and seven stolen bases in 37 games during his first season with the Brewers.

In parts of five major league seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays (2018-21), New York Yankees (2021) and Brewers, he is a career .185 hitter with four home runs, 20 RBIs and 18 steals over 171 games.

Mitchell, 23, was the No. 20 overall draft pick in 2020 out of UCLA. In 68 games over three separate minor league levels this season, Mitchell was batting .287 with five home runs and 34 RBIs.
