Teammate David Wright was keeping him posted.
“I got a text from David,” Davis said. “He said (WBC manager) Joe Torre asked about me. I’m glad they thought of me.”
When asked if Wright put in a good word for him, Davis said: “He said he did … but I didn’t make the team.”
Davis said he would be intrigued to play in the World Baseball Classic.
“I’d get some at-bats, but not as many (if he had a regular spring training,” Davis said. “The games would be more intense. That would be a good way to jump start the season.”
