RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Davis gave validity to the age-27 theorists with a monster season that warranted him MVP consideration. He led the league in home runs (53) and RBI (138), despite slowing down in the second half of the season with a .245/.339/.515 line over his final 65 games. Davis also finished fifth in MLB with a 29.6% strikeout rate, but his .348 ISO (also tops in MLB) shows that his raw power could help him sustain his 2013 numbers. The power output alone has vaulted Davis into the fantasy elite among first basemen, and while he may not hit as high as .286 again, he could prove capable of providing 40 homers annually.

2013

Davis found new life in his first full season in Baltimore while notching his first 30-homer season. The long balls came with a price - a strikeout every 3.1 at-bats. After having trouble getting the ball to leave the park in 2011, Davis had a 25.2 percent HR/FB rate. He also took a step back defensively and spent most of the season as the designated hitter until moving to the outfield for the first time in his career after Nick Markakis went down. Depending on their roster construction, Davis should remain the designated hitter. In a full season, Davis can hit 30 home runs with ease, but the strikeout slumps can occasionally cause him to get benched for small stretches.

2012

Davis remains unable to cash in on his big minor-league success. He received another chance this year in Baltimore and remained unimpressive, posting a .708 OPS. He simply cannot afford to strike out so often - he fanned in 30.2 percent of at-bats with the Orioles last season. Davis chose offseason rehab over surgery after being diagnosed with a sports hernia, so keep an eye on his progress throughout the spring. Look for Baltimore to give him another chance in 2012, but he will be forever limited until he can figure out how to make contact.

2011

Davis was replaced by Justin Smoak in late April after another poor start (.188/.264/.292 with 17 strikeouts in 48 at-bats), hit well at Triple-A Oklahoma City (again) after being sent down, earned a promotion after Smoak was included in the Cliff Lee trade, but failed to hit (again) when given the chance (.189/.267/.245 in 53 at-bats). No longer in Texas' plans following the late-season emergence of Mitch Moreland, Davis will need a change of scenery to get another extended look in the majors. His winter ball season was mixed (six homers in 22 games, but a .250/.341/.550 line with 25 strikeouts in 80 at-bats). If it's cheap power that you're after, be ready to invest in him should the at-bats come along.

2010

Davis began the season in a 1-for-22 slump, struck out 114 times and hit just .202 in 258 at-bats before being sent down to Triple-A just prior to the All-Star break. He mashed again at Triple-A (.327/.423/.536) and was rewarded with a promotion and regular playing time upon his recall, where he hit .308/.338/.496 in 36 games. He's still going to strike out a bunch, but has a history of some success despite the whiffs and he'll get another crack as Texas' first baseman in 2010. The power is legitimate, though he'll need to improve his BB:K rate if he wants to be more than a low-average slugger.

2009

Davis was a welcomed addition to the Texas lineup, hitting .285/.331/.549 in 295 at-bats after a midseason callup, banging out 17 homers and 42 extra-base hits in his time with the Rangers. He struck out too often, continuing his minor-league tendencies, but there's no limit to his power given his home park. He'll be third base eligible for at least one more season, though Texas has mentioned on numerous occasions this winter that Davis' future is at first base.

2008

Davis managed a 35-game hitting streak for High-A Bakersfield before being promoted to Double-A Frisco, where he continued to hit well (.294/.371/.688 in 30 games). His strikeout totals remain worrisome, fanning 150 times in 495 at-bats and drawing just 35 walks, but his composite .297/.347/.598 line as a 21-year-old was a fine effort for his first full professional season after being selected in the 2006 draft. There's enormous power potential here.

2007

Davis perfomed well after being selected in the fifth round last June, posting a solid .277/.343/.534 season in the short-season Northwest League. Fifteen homers in 253 at-bats show his power potential, though there's still plenty of work to do (23 walks, 65 strikeouts). Turning 21 in March means he's got plenty of time.
