Khris Davis tears right meniscus in loss, to have surgery Tuesday

The Milwaukee Brewers keep losing players to injuries.

They lost another regular when promising left fielder Khris Davis left Milwaukee's 7-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday after taking an awkward swing while striking out in the first inning. A frustrated Davis said after the game that he will need surgery Tuesday for a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Asked how tough a season it has been for the team, Davis responded with just two words.

"The worst," he said.

Gerardo Parra will likely take over as the regular left fielder with Davis seemingly sidelined for a while.

The Brewers placed Davis on the 15-day disabled list Sunday and called up Tyler Wagner from Double-A Biloxi to take Davis' roster spot. The right-hander was already in Milwaukee to start Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks for Wily Peralta, who is likely out another month with a left oblique injury.
