MILWAUKEE -

Brewers outfielder Khris Davis said he recently received a death threat on Twitter.

Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin said Tuesday that the threat was turned over to Major League Baseball security. He said the team was told the situation had been "handled" and didn't elaborate.

Davis said he got the threat in mid-May when the Brewers were in Chicago to play the Cubs. He referred to matter as a "distraction."

Melvin said "it is serious when that happens."
