25-Year-Old Third Baseman3B
Detroit Tigers
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Davis made his MLB debut as a 24-year-old in 2022 and played in three games for the Tigers. That's not enough to evaluate, but Davis did record a .763 OPS with 20 home runs across 139 games at the Triple-A level. He started the year in the Angels' organization and was claimed off waivers by Detroit in May before getting called up toward the end of September. The Tigers don't have a ton of established outfield options, with Riley Greene probably the most promising piece after an encouraging debut of his own in 2022. Austin Meadows should return after an injury-shortened season, and Akil Baddoo is also in the mix, along with Willi Castro. Beyond Greene and possibly Meadows if he bounces back, no one in that group seems like a frontline MLB starter, so Davis could push his way into the conversation. For now, he should begin 2023 with Triple-A Toledo and serve as organizational depth. Read Past Outlooks

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Davis signed with the Dodgers for overslot money after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 draft and hasn't done much since to indicate he's a noteworthy prospect. The shortstop hit .241/.295/.334 for Low-A Great Lakes in 2016 with 118 strikeouts in 436 plate appearances. He is currently a very lanky player, listed at 6-foot-4, 165 pounds. He is also just 19 years old. He still has some filling out to do as he progresses, but that extra bulk might mean a position change to third base, where he played 19 games last season. It's worth noting that Davis was fairly young relative to other high school draftees, hearing his name called less than a month before his 18th birthday. Betting on Davis is a bet on projection, as physically he has the potential to be a monster if he can ever hit enough. The good news is he can simply be placed on watch lists for now in the majority of dynasty leagues.
