Scouting Report

2020

The son of former big league outfielder Mark Davidson, Logan Davidson decided to head to his father’s alma mater, Clemson, rather than sign out of the North Carolina high school ranks. He showed off plenty of power in his three years, though he struggled with wood bats in two summers in the Cape Cod League. The A’s liked his upside enough to take him at the end of the first round of the 2019 Draft and signed him for full pick value. After a very slow start to his pro career in the Short-Season New York-Penn League, he posted a .301/.400/.408 August and then swung the bat really well in instructional league play, leaving the A’s optimistic about his first full season of pro ball.

A switch-hitting infielder, Davidson has wiry strength and a lot of raw power, with more in-game pop to come as he fills out that 6-foot-3 frame. With some length to his arms, there’s swing and miss and he does have trouble being on time at the plate. If he’s going to get to average game power, there are going to be strikeouts as well, though he does offset that with an ability to work counts and draw walks. An above-average runner who does produce plus run times occasionally, Davidson is a good baserunner able to steal a base now and again.

Though he’s a bit tall for shortstop, that speed, his overall athleticism and his strong arm should be enough to let him stay at the premium position long term. The A’s do like to move infielders around, and he could see time on both sides of second base, and even some action at the hot corner, as he begins his climb up the A’s ladder.
