You're probably heard that Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Doug Davis is scheduled for surgery today to have his thyroid removed, stemming from a bout with thyroid cancer.
Davis pitched a "farewell for now" game on Tuesday before heading to the Arizona DL to undergo the surgery and have some time to recover and get well, and he got the win with six innings pitched, striking out seven and allowing two earned runs against the Dodgers. Upon his exist from the game, he was given a long standing ovation in Phoenix, and got well wishes from many of the Dodgers and all of the umpires. It was really quite a scene.
Here's hoping Davis is back as soon as humanly possible. Get well soon, Doug, from all of us at Camden Chat.
