Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 40 | Run: 60 | Arm: 45 | Field: 55 | Overall: 40

A 15th-round Draft pick in 2013 out of Central Arkansas, Davis wasn't considered much of a prospect during his first three pro seasons. He changed that perception in 2016 with a breakout performance at age 24 in the Florida State League, and then he held his own the following year over a full season in the Double-A Eastern League before a strong showing in the Arizona Fall League. He built upon that success in 2018, earning a mid-season promotion to Triple-A, then became the first Central Arkansas product to reach the Major Leagues since 1991 when he received a September callup.

While undersized, Davis has excellent strength for his size and creates above-average bat speed from the right side. The result is sneaky power to all fields, though he does most of his damage to the pull side. That he finished third in walks in both the FSL and EL in back-to-back years (2016-17) highlights his ability to control the strike zone and work deep counts, although his patient approach does lead to some swing-and-miss. Davis' on-base skills also help him contribute on the basepaths, where his plus speed makes him a threat to steal 15-plus bases annually.

Davis spent much of his time between the outfield corners before shifting to center field in 2017. Though he took quickly to the position and has continued to make strides as a defender in subsequent years, he's probably going to be a better long-term fit in left field on account of his below-average arm strength.
