Update on Davis per MLBTR.

3:23pm: McCalvy now writes that talks could extend into Monday; it's the seventh inning in Milwaukee, and there's no sign of Davis yet.
1:21pm: Last night, we heard general manager Doug Melvin say that he expected a deal to be reached with supplemental pick Kentrail Davis prior to the signing deadline. MLB.com's Adam McCalvy now reports that the Brewers are "set to sign" Davis, who has arrived in Milwaukee for today's game. McCalvy writes:
"Kentrail Davis, the 39th overall pick in this year's First-Year Player Draft, is at Miller Park today to cross the Is and dot the Ts on his first professional contract. Brewers scouting director Bruce Seid couldn't confirm that the sides have a deal, but Davis' presence said enough."

Davis, who is 5'9" and 200 pounds, played center field at Tennessee, but scouts report that an average throwing arm might mean that his future is in left field. The lefty led his team in hitting in 2008, notching a .330 average while clubbing 13 home runs, knocking in 44 runs, and posting a .435 on base percentage. In 2009, he hit .308 with 9 home runs and 30 runs batted in.
