2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jordan, i was combing through some minor league stats this morning, i was very surprised to see D.J. Davis has only 7 stolen bases on the season. I know he has really struggled with the bat but this seems very low for someone that is supposed to have 70+ speed. Have you seen or heard anything on Davis this season?
(Nick from Windsor)
I have actually seen Davis in person, and came away even more underwhelmed than other's reports indicate. He had virtually no approach at the plate, and poor awareness on the basepaths. His routes were decent in CF, although having big time speed doesn't hurt. I wouldn't bet on the tools actualizing in his particular case. I'd take Anthony Gose over him, who I don't think will ever hit, and that's not saying much. (Jordan Gorosh)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)I was curious to know your thoughts on D.J. Davis. How good can this kid be?
(Nick from Georgia)
He's got the Billy Hamilton fast rep, although the skills haven't quite translated to THAT on the basepaths yet. I hear he has shown more with the power tool than expected. He could be quite good but a) I'm not the prospect guy and b) let's he what he does in the higher minors. If I had to guess, there's a 15/45 ceiling here, but that's obviously assuming every single thing breaks right. There are a lot of paths here. Good reports so far, though. (Mike Gianella)
2013-05-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have in your farm system: D.J. Davis or Victor Roache?
(Nick from Jacksonville)
I'll take power over speed every day, so give me the upside of Roache over Davis. Roache has a huge power profile, and he could be a rapid riser when/if his wrist fully heals. Wrist issues can be death to power bats, so that is the X factor. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)I heard a lot of bad things on D.J. Davis, is his ceiling in the Brinson range?
(Mike from Utica, NY)
Bad things? Haven't we determined through the years that your sources on players are usually bad? (Jason Parks)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Has anyone verified D.J. Davis's age as well, MLB.com has him at 6/27/93 and others 7/25/94, that's a significant gap.
(Mike from Utica, NY)
MilB.com has Davis listed as 07/25/94, as does every other source I checked. (Jason Parks)
