Big guy; broad shoulders, thick middle; higher maintenance body type, potential for core to fill out with bad weight as he ages.
9 games April - July 2015
Lancaster JetHawks (High A, Astros)
Nothing out of the ordinary to report.
40/bench corner bat
Hand tight to back ear, mild wrap, small hitch to a moderate load; toe tap, noise in lower half, comes up on toes in weight transfer compromising balance; generates significant leverage with above-average bat speed; hips will leak early; below-average track against same-handed pitching; moderate command of the zone, will expand against velocity up and soft away.
60 or better raw; highly-leveraged swing, natural lift, generates backspin and carry; pull-side game power, can take it out straight away when he extends; can punish mistakes but approach limits utility.
Six clocks averaging 4.42, lacks fluidity in start-up strides; body type to round projection down.
Jabby first step, lateral movement lacks consistent balance at start-up; speed and big body limit range and mobility; good hands with soft give on receipt, makes the plays he can get to; reads spin well, shows body control in fielding on the move.
Short, quick delivery, easy plus velocity; above-average movement can affect accuracy on the move; sets feet well, stays in his mechanics.
Davis features two at-least plus raw tools in his power and arm, but it's an open question as to whether either will ultimately play in games. His swing is long with some timing and balance issues that can be exploited by good sequencing and execution. In the field his poor foot speed limits his range and below-average mobility raises the question of whether his arm may end up a hidden asset at first.
