Davis indicated his movements in the last few days have confirmed it wasn’t a new tear.

Davis injured the shoulder diving for a grounder at third base on Feb. 25 in Lakeland, Fla. He remained on the ground for an extended period, heightening fears that he would be lost long term.

“All the strength is there, all the range of motion is there, it’s just easing it back in,” Davis said, noting that his next step will likely be hitting live pitching.
