MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Brewers' left-fielder Khris Davis revealed Tuesday that he received a death threat that Major League Baseball found serious enough to investigate. He said it was made on Twitter in mid-May when the Brewers were in Chicago and Davis was struggling at the plate. He told Brewers' officials, who turned it over to M-L-B's security team to handle. Somebody called "Xero Vanderbilt" wrote a racial epithet against the African-American Davis and wrote, "Your family should all be killed." General manager Doug Melvin said M-L-B told the team it resolved the matter, and they gave no details to the G-M. The 26-year-old Davis is in his first full season as Milwaukee's starting left fielder. He said he was facing several distractions when he got the death threat and he had a meeting with manager Ron Roenicke, who assured Davis that he deserves to be in the Majors - and he offered some suggestions about batting. Davis said Roenicke found out about the death threat and arranged the meeting. Melvin said such threats cannot be taken as a joke today and he said it had to be a distraction to Davis. Melvin also made it clear he was not a fan of social media, saying only a small percentage of it is good.
