2015

Selected 32nd overall in the 2014 first-year player draft, the 18-year-old Davidson uses his 6-foot-2, 210-pound frame to generate plus bat speed from the left side of the plate. That speed did not did not translate to power in his first professional season -- Davidson did not hit a homer and managed just 10 extra-base hits in 187 plate appearances in rookie ball. But he did demonstrate an advanced approach, walking 31 times against 42 strikeouts, and it should only be a matter of time before the power shows up in games. He played exclusively in left field, and while Davidson doesn't move all that well, he has a plus arm and the Braves figure to keep him in the corner to fill what could be a glaring hole in a couple seasons. First, Davidson will need to prove himself in the minors, likely starting at Low-A Rome to begin the year.
