Davian is an athletic and talented 2023 utility prospect that made several adjustments throughout the week at Vero Beach. At SS, Davian makes good double play feeds, has a clean exchange, and makes accurate throws. He needs to continue to presents a low/early glove, be on time with his prep step, and work from the ground up. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Davian starts in a closed stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and clears his backside to the ball. He needs to continue to get his front foot down on time and hunt the fastball. Davian will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
