According to Davis' agent, he won't have to go through waivers:
"A number of clubs have been interested in him in the past and I'm sure there will be a couple of more in the next few days," said Braunecker. "He'll end up getting traded instead of being claimed on waivers."
With several teams interested in the tall right-hander's services, the Indians might get a decent prospect out of this. Keep in mind that Davis has started before, which would increase his value to clubs desperate for starting pitching.
