MINNEAPOLIS -- Orioles first baseman Chris Davis continues to progress favorably from a left oblique strain, as he was out at Target Field prior to Baltimore's game against the Twins doing some exercises and came through that step with no issues.

"It's still ... I don't want to say in the infant stage, but it's good he's gotten to that point," manager Buck Showalter said of Davis, who was officially placed on the disabled list Sunday, retroactive to April 26. "I've seen some obliques at this stage that were not at that point this quickly. He doesn't have any discomfort at the point of injury. We'll see."

Davis did some resistance band work with strength and conditioning coach Joe Hogarty Saturday, including some light running drills and stretching. The O's have been encouraged with how Davis has responded since getting a pair of platelet-rich plasma injections to help the healing process on Monday.

"He's doing some things a little earlier than some guys do with that injury," Showalter said. "That's kind of good to see. He's been in the pool doing some movement."

Davis is eligible to come off the DL on May 11.
