2012 MLB Draft – Blue Jays Draft OF D.J. Davis With 17th Pick

17. TORONTO BLUE JAYS — D.J. Davis: OF, Wiggins (Miss.) HS

Speed is the calling card for the Mississippi outfielder, who some say is faster even than his fellow Mississippi product Billy Hamilton, who stole more than 100 bases for the Reds’ low-Class A team in Dayton last season. Unlike Hamilton, Davis is more than just a speedster. At 6-foot, 170 pounds, he has some power potential. A left-handed hitter, he also has the potential to hit for average. His arm is considered below average, but his speed more than makes up for that.

“One of the goals is to continue to add athletes to the system, athletes with upside; D.J. Davis has a very good left-handed swing, he’s an eight runner on the 2-8 scale, he’s got a chance to hit at the top of the lineup and play in the middle of the field,” Blue Jays amateur scouting director Andrew Tinnish said during a conference call. “Those are the things that attracted us to him.”

    When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when
    new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I
    recieve four emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy
    method you are able to remove me from that service?

    Thank you!
