Jaylin Davis

Jaylin Davis fits more into the Yastrzemski mold of a guy who at his best can hit for power and drive in runs, but who lacks the defensive gifts of a Hamilton or Duggar.

The big thing with Davis is that he has not yet proven he can be a run producer at the big league level.

That said, he had a huge season in the minors last year, hitting .306/.397/.590 with 35 home runs in 541 plate appearances between Double-A and Triple-A.

We will still likely see Davis on the big league roster at some point this year. So far, he hasn’t really played center field, but chances are he is capable of it.

The team probably views him as more of a corner outfield option, but if he can hit his way into the lineup, he could see some starts in center field.
