5 180 Tampa Bay Rays J.D. Davis 3B Calif.
At 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, third baseman J.D. Davis is a good hitter with a lot of strength and above-average power. His swing is more about strength than pure bat speed, which concerns some scouts. He also has a stocky body with a thick lower half and will have to watch his conditioning as he gets older. He is already seen as a baseclogger. Davis also pitches and has been up to 93 mph off the mound, with a curveball and a changeup. His arm strength and body type make scouts think he might be worth trying at catcher. Davis is committed to Cal State Fullerton.
