After a solid summer, Davis finished the fall strong at the Florida Diamond Club and World Wood Bat Championships, where he touched 93 and sat 91 mph. His velocity has been lighter this spring but he finished with a strong showing at Florida's high school all-star game in late May in Sebring. Davis faces a tough profile as a high schooler who throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, typically a reliever profile. His delivery and arm slot draw comparisons to former big leaguer Jeff Nelson, though he's smaller at 6-foot-3. His velocity has been 87-90 mph this spring, touching 91, but he was 89-92, touching 93 in Sebring. With a funky delivery and low arm slot, Davis will thrive with the groundballs he produces with his plus fastball life. His secondary stuff includes an inconsistent changeup that flashes at least average, and a slider that tends to flatten out. His delivery has some effort, but the 17-year-old has age and projection on his side, with a lean and lanky build. Davis is committed to Florida.
