    Davis was a toolshed prospect coming out of high school who boasted standout physicality and athleticism as well as plus arm strength and raw power potential. He was one of the highest-ranked players to make it to campus, but didn’t play everyday with Arizona until 2022, when he slashed .289/.414/.583 with 18 home runs. That led to a Team USA trials roster invitation following the season. Davis is a chiseled, 6-foot-1, 216-pound outfielder who has big-time raw power thanks to impressive bat speed and strength. Prior to the 2023 season, that power came with real swing-and-miss questions. He had just a 68% contact rate in the first two seasons of his career, but course-corrected in a sensational 2023 season where he hit .362/.489/.742 with 21 home runs, a career-low 14.4% strikeout rate and an overall contact rate that surged to 80%. Davis didn’t sacrifice any power to get there either, with all-fields power and the same loud exit velocities he normally produces. Davis’ increased contact ability has amplified his offensive profile, which already started with a strong feel for the zone and plus raw power. Davis has mostly played left field for Arizona, and he’s an above-average runner who should be a solid defender in a corner. He has one of the better throwing arms in the class, a 70-grade cannon capable of halting runners in their tracks, and profiles nicely in right field in pro ball. Davis remains a divisive prospect, perhaps given his history of contact questions, but at the high end he’s viewed as a mid-first round talent.
