 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Outfielder Rajai Davis, on a 21-game hitting streak for Triple-A Indianapolis, was recalled by the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night and catcher Humberto Cota was designated for assignment.
Davis, hitting .318 with four homers and 30 RBIs in 53 games for Indianapolis, is likely to platoon with Chris Duffy in center field for at least the short term after joining the Pirates in Washington on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old Davis was only 2-for-14 (.143) during a brief callup last season, but manager Jim Tracy was told by the Indians' staff that the outfielder has made major improvements this season.
Davis was not in the lineup for the Indians on Monday night after extending his hitting streak Sunday with a leadoff home run in the first inning.
``We're going to give him an opportunity to play, to see what we have in him,'' Tracy said.
Cota has played little the last two seasons. He hit .190 with one extra-base hit in 100 at-bats last season and was hitting .286 in 14 at-bats this season. He can return to the Pirates only by going through waivers.
