The Milwaukee Brewers' outfield underwent a massive change during the season after the team parted ways with Lorenzo Cain. Milwaukee then turned to fellow veteran Jonathan Davis to fill Cain's shoes in centerfield, but his production lacked at the plate.

The Brewers decided to outright Davis to Triple-A after their season concluded, and he's now made a decision on his future with the team.

Davis is rejecting the outright and electing free agency, per MiLB's transaction log. Since he was outrighted before in his career, he had the option to choose free agency instead.

Davis was originally a 15th-round draft pick by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2013. He eventually made his MLB debut with Toronto in 2018 and played 122 games for the Blue Jays over the next three and a half seasons. The New York Yankees then claimed Davis on waivers in 2021 before outrighting him at the end of the season, which allowed him to join the Brewers during this past offseason on a minor-league deal.

The outfielder appeared in 37 games for Milwaukee in 2022, using his speed and dependable glove to fill the hole in center field. His struggles at the plate were apparent, though, as Davis slashed just .224/.344/.237 with 0 home runs and only 4 RBIs in 91 plate appearances.

Milwaukee has a host of young outfield talent in the minors that appears ready to contribute in 2023, making it an easy choice to part ways with Davis.
