Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 30 LHH- Really chokes up on the bat, line-drive stroke, lacks bat speed, more of a slapper.
RHH- A more open crouched stance, choked up on barrel, lacks separation with hands, flat LD stroke, looks to be throwing hands at balls, lacks bat speed.

Overall- Chases at a lot of pitches as he tries to put the ball in play.
Power 20 Zero power, doesn't square up a lot, uses speed to get XBH, power isn't part of game
Baserunning/Speed 80 80 runner, 4.02 (RH), 3.90 (LH), makes fielders uncomfortable, puts balls in play, looking to bunt, 3.47 (LH-JB). Needs to improve jumps off pitchers to be a basestealing threat.
Glove 40 Below-average fielder, takes bad routes to the baseball, speed makes up for mistakes with reads and routes. Plus range given 80 run.
Arm 50 Average arm strength, good carry and accuracy.

Davis is a pure 80 runner, a hitter who makes fielders uncomfortable at the plate as he is looking to bunt and get on base. He lacks the hitting skills to be a bigger threat overall. Being a below-average OF defensively doesn't help matters as poor routes/jumps will hurt him down the road. Every organization has a Terrance Gore type floating around, the Brewers one is named Johnny Davis.
