Davila entered the spring one of many projectable Mid-Atlantic arms, and showed quickly that he had taken the appropriate steps forward. He pitched more in the mid-to-upper 80s as a rising senior on the showcase circuit, but began to fill out his 6-foot-2 frame over the offseason, and came out with low 90s velocity this spring. The southpaw was unhittable this spring, striking out nearly two batters per inning and allowing only one earned run through the entire season. Davila pitched mostly at 88-91 mph, though he bumped 93 at times. His best offspeed pitch is his mid-70s curveball, which breaks with 11-to-5 shape and projects as an average pitch. Davila can battle command issues at times and may take a while to develop, but there is still room to fill in his frame, and some scouts see him as a potential back-of-the-rotation starter. Davila is committed to Tennessee, where he could potentially join the Volunteers' weekend rotation quickly, though area scouts believe that he is signable.
