    Entering the spring, Davis looked like a potential top five rounds pick, with an authoritative righthanded swing an intriguing speed. Davis had homered against N.C. State ace Carlos Rodon in each of his first two seasons at Appalachian State, and had a chance to prove himself as a junior. Before he really got rolling in 2015, however, Davis injured his non-throwing shoulder on a diving play in the outfield, and he needed season-ending surgery. At his best, Davis has shown the potential for above-average power, mature routes in center field, an average arm and average speed. The main question on him was about the ceiling of his hit tool, and his injury clouds that image.
