DateQuestionAnswer
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone's high on the Braves system, but as a Braves fan, I'm confused. I don't see any pitchers with ace potential other than Newcomb, who can't throw strikes. I don't see any hitters who could hit 20+ homers. So what am I missing? Can a team win with a bunch of 10-15 homer guys in the lineup and a bunch of middle rotation guys in the rotation?
(Alex from Atlanta)
First of all, Dansby Swanson. Second of all, Austin Riley and Braxton Davidson absolutely could hit 20+ homers. Third of all, Dansby Swanson. Fourth of all, not a lot of ace guys, but a TON of middle of the rotation guys. Their depth is simply outstanding. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)looking into your crystal ball, could you rank the following outfielders for me. Braxton Davidson, Derek Fisher, Harold Ramirez, Alex Verdugo and Michael Reed (though he's fallen off quite a bit recently).
(fred from C-Falls)
Fisher, Verdugo, Ramirez, Davidson, and Reed. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Braxton Davidson has been pretty productive in lo-A, but it's been mostly based on BB with just decent BA and SLG. I know he has a long developmental road ahead of him, but is that a profile that can round into a middle of the order hitter?
(Jack from GA)
I'd like to see a little more assertiveness out of him, but it's tough to complain about a .400 OBP in your first full year of professional baseball. There's above-average power in his bat though, and I think that'll show more as he becomes more assertive early in counts. Not a great defensive profile at all, but a pretty darn good offensive one. He was a great pick. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)I really like Braxton Davidson from Atlanta. I know he was on the list of guys that just missed. What type of major leaguer can he be? High OBP - mediocre power?
(MP from KY)
That's probably the profile, though he'll need the power to play because he's not a guy who is going to offer much defensively. (Jeff Moore)
2015-06-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the higher offensive upside, Braxton Davidson or Derek Fisher?
(Matt from Kentucky)
I'd have to say Fisher, but this was a fun question. I think both have a chance to hit for both average and power. I'm just a little bit more sold on Fisher. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-02-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)Could you please look into your crystal ball and tell me what kind of major league player Braxton Davidson turns into? Thanks
(Charles from Atlanta)
Reports on Davidson from complex league ball were underwhelming. I don't believe in his ability to play the OF, and if he moves all the way down the defensive spectrum to 1B, then it's going to hinge on the hit tool. He definitely has some funk in the swing, although good feel for the barrel. I've seen him turned in as a high Role 4, low Role 5 type guy. (Jordan Gorosh)
