01/12/2018 - 2018 Baseball Factory All-America Pre-Season Rookie Tournament
Davin is a hard working and talented 2-way prospect. In the OF, Davin has an active prep step and makes strong throws to the bases. Continuing to read balls off the bat and creating angles will allow him to have more consistent routes to the ball. At the plate, Davin has a simple stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He stays balanced through contact and is a line drive hitter. Creating rhythm pre pitch and getting his front foot down on time will allow him to recognize pitches. On the bump, Davin gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and keeps his eyes on target. Continuing to have a strong glove side and finishing over the front side will allow him to work the bottom half of the zone. Davin will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
