Name: Christopher Lyn Davis
Born: Mar 17, 1986 in Longview, Texas USA
High School: Longview (Texas) HS
College: Navarro (Texas) JC
Ht.: 6'3" / Wt.: 230 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 5th round (148th overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2006 (signed for $172,500)
Davis transferred from Texas to Navarro Junior College before his freshman season and was taken by the Angels in the 35th round of the 2005 draft. He ranked among the national juco leaders with 17 homers this spring, and his kind of lefthanded power is always in demand. Bulldogs coach Skip Johnson compares him to another former Navarro star, Brad Hawpe. Davis also has a 90-92 mph fastball and a decent breaking ball on the mound, though his back bothered him and limited him as a pitcher. If he doesn't turn pro this summer, he'll attend Arkansas.
