CHICAGO (AP) Veteran pitcher Doug Davis will make his first start as a Cub, and his first start since October elbow surgery, when the Chicago Cubs take on the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants on Saturday.

The 35-year-old Davis had an ulnar nerve transposition and surgery to repair his left elbow flexor tendon in October. He went 1-4 in eight starts for Milwaukee last season and was signed to a minor league contract after the Cubs lost starters Randy Wells and Andrew Cashner to injuries last month.

It will be Davis’ first start since July 9 of last year.

Chicago put Wells (forearm strain) and Cashner (rotator cuff strain) on the DL in early April.

Reliever James Russell struggled in four spot starts. Casey Coleman is 1-2 with a 6.29 ERA in five starts.
