The team says Davis is cleared to play, and Davis said he is simply trying to avoid extreme fatigue.
"I feel great. I don't have any symptoms of it. I'm not coughing. I'm not throwing up blood. I'm not doing anything. It's not even hard to breathe. And the doctors said I could play. Just don't get really, really fatigued. So that's what we're doing. If I get really tired, I just step to the side and take a break," Davis told reporters.
Meanwhile, third baseman David Wright will miss the team's first two exhibition games due to stiffness in his left ribcage. Scott Hairston is out with a strained oblique muscle.
