Stat Review
How does Austin Davis compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. 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.

The season may be winding down, but Jan Levine continues to offer a number of NL names to get you through the fantasy schedule.
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.
