Brewers outfielder Khris Davis has a torn meniscus in his right knee and will undergo surgery on Tuesday, MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy reports. Davis suffered the injury on a swing as he struck out in the first inning Saturday against the Diamondbacks. Gerardo Parra took over in left field to begin the second inning.

It’s not known yet exactly how long Davis will be out, though it should be for at least a month. He was having a productive season, batting .252/.339/.449 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 168 plate appearances. Parra figures to get most of the playing time in left field while Davis is out. Parra has performed about as well offensively, hitting .292/.320/.467 with two home runs and 14 RBI in 128 PA.

The Mets have signed pitcher Ervin Santana to a minor league deal.

Santana was most recently with the White Sox who designated him for assignment and subsequently released him in late April. It was a earned release, as he allowed 14 runs on 19 hits and six walks with five strikeouts over 13.1 innings before being cut. He only made five starts with the Twins in 2018 due to a an injury, but he was an All-Star in 2017 so why not kick the tires?

Santana will report to extended spring training to kick off the rust. Your guess is as a good as mine as to when or if he’ll pitch in New York this year.
