2012 MLB Draft: Toronto Blue Jays Select Outfielder D.J. Davis

D.J. Davis, OF, Stone HS, Wiggins, MS: The fastest man in the draft, with 80 speed on the 20-80 scale, Davis shot up boards when he started to show more power and an improved hitting approach this spring. A 6-0, 17- pound left-handed hitter, he has the range to stick in center, which is fortunate because he doesn't have the arm for right field. He is committed to Meridian Community College, not a Division I program, and should definitely sign in this slot. Davis was known to scouts for his superb speed entering the spring, but surprised them by showing more power and a better feel for the strike zone. Davis has been linked to the Blue Jays for a couple of weeks, and he fits with the tools/upside approach that the front office has adopted in recent years. Davis might become a leadoff man with outstanding speed, impressive on-base skills, respectable pop, and a sound glove.
