From the Field: Rookie Davis, p, Cincinnati Reds

William Theron Davis was drafted out of Dixon HS (NC) in the 14 round of the 2011 draft by the Yankees.

Davis was a two way player in high school, so the Yankees considered him a project who would need to focus on pitching for a couple of seasons. In 2015, as a starter, he would pitch very well between High-A and AA (1.209 WHIP over 130.2 innings), and would end the season ranked as one of the Yankees Top 25 prospect.

Davis was traded to the Res in late 2015, part of the Aroldis Chapman deal.

He has a fine 2016 with the Reds. He spent most of the season in AA and went 10-3 with a 2.94 ERA/1.168 WHIP in 100.1 innings. He would get a couple starts in AAA, but it went…not so great (24 innings, 38 hits allowed, good for a 1.875 WHIP). Still, despite the bumpy AAA debut, not a bad season.

He did not make most Reds Top 25 lists to begin the 2017 season, but he is still very much on the prospect map. He should start the year off in AAA, and could very well see some time in the majors this season if he pitches well.
