Focus Area
Hitting Ability:Davis tends to be a slow starter, but showed a smooth swing from the left side.
Power:Davis has some untapped raw power that could be developed as a pro.
Running Speed:He's a tick below Major League average in terms of speed.
Base running:Not a base-clogger by any means, he's a decent baserunner.
Arm Strength:Also a pitcher who throws about 87 mph, his arm plays fine from the outfield or first base.
Fielding:He's a solid corner outfielder and can handle himself well around first.
Range:He's got good instincts in the outfield and would have no trouble covering enough ground to stay there.
Physical Description:Davis has a good, projectable and athletic body.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Smooth swing from the left side; good athleticism; good bloodlines -- former big league pitcher Ron Davis is his dad.
Weaknesses:He doesn't always repeat his swing, leading to incomplete at-bats at times. Sometimes he appears to be a little low energy.
Summary:On radars since high school, when he was a 19th round pick of the Rays in 2005, the son of ex-big leaguer Ron Davis has a sweet left-handed swing that should generate more power in the future. He's not speedy, but he is a solid base runner and would be fine as a corner outfielder or first baseman at the next level.
