Davis, 28, has been on the disabled list since April 27 with a strained left oblique. He was off to a slow start in 22 games before hitting the disabled list, though, as he had hit just two home runs in that span after hitting 53 last season.
Weiters, 27, goes on the disabled list with a right elbow strain. Weiters has been enjoying his best all-around offensive season up to this point, hitting .308 with 5 home runs and 18 RBI’s in 26 games played.
