GRAND CHUTE, WI - The Milwaukee Brewers have announced that Doug Davis will make a rehabilitation start for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.  The left-hander will start the game on Wednesday, June 30 when the Rattlers host the Quad Cities River Bandits at 12:05pm. 

Davis has not made a major league start since May 10.  He has been on the disabled list since doctors diagnosed him with pericarditis, an inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart, in mid-May.  Davis was 1-4 with a 7.56 ERA in seven starts for the Brewers before going on the DL.

Davis has made a pair of rehabilitation starts for the Nashville Sounds, the Triple-A affiliate of the Brewers.  In his last start on June 24, Davis pitched five shutout innings, allowed two hits, struck out nine, and picked up the win against the Memphis Redbirds.

Tickets are available for all 2010 Timber Rattlers home games and may be purchased one of three ways: On-line at, over the phone at 800-WI-TIMBER, or in person at the Time Warner Cable Field Box Office.
