News: Diamondbacks SP Doug Davis has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. "We don't know much, other than he does have thyroid cancer," team president Derrick Hall said in a telephone interview on Friday. "It's saddening. It was a complete surprise to the entire organization, and to him." Hall said Davis would take his regular turn in the rotation on April 3 at Cincinnati, in the first series of the regular season. Davis is expected to undergo surgery on April 10, Hall said. "After that, it's too difficult now to predict any timing related to it," Hall said. "There is a chance he won't be ready this season. It dramatically changes the outlook. Naturally, we'd rather Doug be in the rotation, but we do have good, viable options."
