Not talked about as much compared to some other OF, but I like him.
He has a good skill set and it will be interesting to see how he does the rest of the year at Frederick.

Of all of the annual speedy college OFs taken by the O's recently I think Ruettiger may turn out best. If Mummey can stay healthy it's him, but he just can't stay off the DL.

I think Davis is a little better skilled both on the bases and in the field. I'll give Ruettiger the nod at the plate. Lke Trents skills a lot but just seems like one of those guys who is just snake bitten when it comes to trying to stay healthy.

You guys pretty much covered my thoughts too.

In my opinion:

Speed/Baserunning: Davis
Approach/Plate: Ruettiger
Ceiling: Mummey

this is as of now in my eyes.
I want to see Davis some more though before I peg him down too hard on anything.

Honestly, I'd probably go with Davis as the best defensively.
I just really think he has the best chance to be an above average CF on the defensive side.

and that's not saying anything bad about the other two. It's like saying whose the richest millionaire.
