After an injury-filled 2018, look what Davis did in 2019.
- Born: November 2, 1999
- B/T: R/R
- 6’4″, 175-lbs
- Drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 2nd round of the 2018 MLB June Amateur Draft from Basha HS (Gilbert, AZ)
His raw numbers are listed above courtesy of baseball-reference.com. Let’s aggregate by year then focus on the important numbers for minor leaguers:
Ignore the red box for his 2018 ISO. He was injured twice that year, and it affected his power. Just look at 2019’s version and you see that power is his game, thank you very much.
He also shows and excellent batting eye for having such power. His strikeout and walk rates are amazingly good for being just a teenager at the time.
He has speed, though it wasn’t used as much in 2019, but he’s got it. Until his 6’4″ frame fills out, he can steal a base if asked. As someone who gets on base a lot, that’s something to keep in mind.
He hit lefties better, but he hit righties fine too.
We see more pull power here, but there is also opposite field power on display. As a teen. Yeah, he’s strong.
Look that that .873 career OPS!
- Rotowire: #53 on their Top 400.
- BaseballHQ: #62 on their Top 100.
- Fangraphs: #55 on their Top 120.
- Fantasy Six Pack: #267 on their dynasty list.
- Prospects365: #31 on Ray Butler’s Top 200.
- Imaginary Brick Wall: #24 on the Top 487.
- Fantrax: #42 on the Top 250.
He hasn’t reached AA yet.
He got hurt twice by getting hit on the hands trying to bunt. Let’s stop that, ok?
He’s one of the best prospects the Cubs have, and one of the best prospects in the game, period.
If it all comes together, he could be a five tools player in the majors.
