Brewers OF Davis receives death threat via Twitter

MILWAUKEE - Brewers outfielder Khris Davis received a death threat via Twitter during the Brewers recent road trip, a threat serious enough that Major League Baseball was asked to investigate it.

Davis received a tweet during the Brewers trip to Chicago that used a racial epithet, called Davis \"worthless\", and said that his family should be killed.

The author of the tweet has changed Twitter handles since the story went public Tuesday afternoon.

Davis called the tweet a \"distraction\" but said he and Ron Roenicke had a conversation soon after the tweet was sent.

Davis hit a home run for the second straight game Tuesday night.
