RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A first-round pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, Davis had a disappointing 2013 campaign with rookie league Bluefield, failing to show any meaningful signs of improvement. His .240/.323/.418 line was quite similar to what he produced in rookie ball the previous season, though it should still be good enough to ensure that Davis begins 2014 at a full-season A-ball affiliate. The 20-year-old outfielder's contact skills are particularly concerning, after 29.5% of his 2013 plate appearances ended in a strikeout. Despite the disappointing early returns, Davis is still young enough to turn things around.
Davis was selected 17th overall by Toronto in the 2012 amateur draft. Davis is an elite athlete with top level speed, stealing 25 bases in 60 minor league games. While he is still raw, he has shown the ability to take a walk, a skill the Blue Jays hope will make him stand out and move quickly in their system. Considering that he's just 19 and on the brink of his first full professional season, Davis is likely three-plus years away from getting onto the big league radar.
