I think Davis is Daniel Murphy-lite. He doesn't really have a position: he isn't a very good third baseman and doesn't have an outfielder's instincts.

But his bat definitely plays.

Davis isn't that young. He's a few months younger than Conforto and Nimmo.

Put him on the mound: 2.2 IP, 2 H, 4 K, 1 BB, 1 HR.

For absolutely no reason whatsoever, I'm gonna comp him to Keith Moreland.

This was a great article at least in terms of showing the amount of work some players put in off the field to prepare for the game.

I'd like to see Davis get some innings in the outfield -- he hasn't looked great at third in the games that I've seen, and the numbers say he's been terrible. But it would be good to have his bat in the lineup more consistently.
