Davis is so fast they time him with a Warp factor. He also seems to have an idea how to use that speed. I accept that the New York Penn League pitchers do not have the best skills at holding runners nor do their catchers have the best times to 2B but having a 23 to 5 record of SBs at the age of 19 in that league is no joke. Combine that with a decent ratio of 20/40 BB to Ks and you have a potential effective lead off hitter. He are his stats http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?pos=&sid=t488&t=p_pbp&pid=607974
He's listed at 6-3 and 170. He'll need to put on about 15 lbs of muscle to increase the number of doubles he's hitting. If he can increase his ratio of extra base hits to one per every ten ABs or so he will prevent better quality pitching from just pounding the strike zone. With his advanced batting eye he can force pitchers to show him a lot of pitches as he leads off a game which helps the batters following him just as Brian Roberts
If this kid is dominant at Frederick at any point next year he'll have to be considered a top 100 prospect.
