Prospect of the Day:  OF Khris Davis

After missing a good chunk of time this season due to injury, Khris Davis has been on fire at the plate as of late. In his last ten games, he is hitting .412/.500/.647 — including a 7-for-8 performance on Saturday night’s double-header with a double, a home run, and two RBI. He continues to draw walks and has cut down his strikeouts from previous years.

Davis is an interesting player because his offensive statistics would make him a prized prospect at almost any position on the diamond. The problem, however, is that Davis doesn’t really have a home. He profiles best at left field, which means his bat will have to remain extra special to retain any value. His arm is largely thought to be too weak to handle right field, and his range is not nearly large enough to patrol center field with regularity.

Left field prospects rarely make it to The Show. Still, all he has done since making his professional debut in 2009 is hit. If he continues to hit, the Brewers will find some way to get him in a big league uniform down the road — even if it’s just a fourth or fifth outfielder, primarily used as a bench bat.

    Position problems tend to work themselves out eventually. Allen Craig was/is blocked at every position, doesn’t play any position extraordinarily well, but manages to find playing time for his bat.

    It’s unlikely that Davis will quite be the hitter Craig has shown, but might not be as a out there of a comp.

  2. Chris says: July 22, 2012

    It would be nice to have player like Craig. But what makes him valuable is that he gets regular playing time; I suspect that keeps him sharp enough to contribute at a high level offensively. Of course, he gets that playing time because is adequate enough defensively to play three spots–from Jim’s description, it is unclear if Davis has the tools to fill in regularly at first or the corner OF spots. If not and he is just an bench guy who plays once or twice a week and gets sporadic PH duty, it is hard to see him producing much on that erratic schedule. Maybe Davis is attractive to an AL club as a DH?
