2020 Fantasy Outlook
Davis hasn't shown much through the first two seasons of his big-league career. After posting a respectable 4.15 ERA in 34.2 innings in 2018, he stumbled to a 6.15 ERA in 20.2 frames in 2019. His 24.5% strikeout rate was above-average, but his 14.3% walk rate and 2.61 HR/9 were each quite poor. In 55.1 total career innings, he now has a 5.04 ERA, a number backed up by his 4.97 FIP. The southpaw hasn't shut down fellow lefties, as they've hit .286/.375/.548 against him. There could be at least a little upside here, as Davis owns a 2.69 ERA and a 30.0% strikeout rate in 83.2 career innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but that upside is likely as nothing more than a capable middle reliever. It would take significant skill growth for Davis to earn save opportunities, and he doesn't offer much in other categories, so he can safely be ignored during draft season in most formats.

Makes Opening Day roster
PPhiladelphia Phillies
July 24, 2020
Davis (illness) was activated from the injured list Thursday and will be part of the Phillies' Opening Day roster.
ANALYSIS
Davis has failed to impress in parts of two big-league seasons thus far, posting a 5.04 ERA and a 4.97 FIP in 55.1 innings of work. In theory, he could be used to help shut down lefties, but left-handed hitters have hit .286/.375/.548 against him in 97 plate appearances. He's unlikely to see any high-leverage work this season.

For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
