8/9/17

5-foot-10, 185 pounds, thick and athletic. Strong lower half. Ran a 4.37 home-to-first. A right handed hitter, Davenport has a balance, controlled swing. He starts with his feet shoulder width apart and the bat up by his shoulder, with a small leg kick that triggers the swing. The bat path is level-up, and he showed some pop during batting practice to left-center field. Swing is primed for line drives with a strong finish through contact. Registered an exit velocity of 85 mph off the tee. Defensively, Davenport throws from a high ¾ slot. His arm was clocked at 78 mph across the diamond, and there is room for improvement. Showed increased comfort moving laterally to make defensive plays from his last showcase. Charges the ball hard, with athletic throws on the run. Soft hands and some feel for turning double plays. Overall, Davenport continues to improve as a player year-over-year showing a passion for improvement with the talent to continue doing so.

Home-First: 4.37

Exit Velocity: 85 MPH

Arm Velocity: 78 MPH

5-foot-10, 185 pounds, Davenport has a mature build, already in the midst of filling out. Strong, thick lower half, still room to add some upper body strength. Defensively, best served at third base moving forward, showed comfort going to his backhand, questions about the lateral quickness for defense at second. Good straight line speed charging the ball and accurate throws on the run. Potential for more velocity on his throws. His arm velocity was 72 mph. Upright stance, steps into the ball, good power, gap-to-gap at present. Generates some loft, barrels during batting practice, with a tee exit velocity of 85 mph. Continued refinement in approach will help him get the most out of the offensive profile.

Home - First: 4.58

Exit Velocity: 85 mph

Arm Velocity: 72 mph

5-foot-7, 185-pound, strong solid athletic frame. The lower body, wrists and hands have above average strength to them. A right-handed hitting infielder, one of his better tools are his legs, runs above average. The stance is wide, even and hands are set just above the back shoulder. The bat starts in a good position, with tilt to it. The lower half is under control, has a small controlled leg kick, gains ground with it, hands stay back during the load. The swing is flat through the zone, stays on it and finishes high above the shoulder with one hand. The approach is simple, gap to gap, swing creates backspin, made solid contact during BP, hits the ball with authority. Defensively, plays up the middle, uses his legs extremely well, works from the ground up. The hands are soft, is quick from the glove to throwing arm, very little wasted steps. The arm action is short and clean, ball comes out of a high ¾ slot, with carry, arm was clocked at 77 mph across the diamond. The double play feeds were started correct, open hip had rhythm and timing to them, slow roller pro move came through it well. Solid looking infielder, tough, blue collar type player, could end up at the hot corner, solid follow.

Home - First: 4.09

Exit Velocity: 87 mph

Arm Velocity: 77 mph

Stocky right-handed hitting corner infielder, can play shortstop in a pinch if needed. Shows a solid glove, good footwork and the ability to make all the throws. Threw 70 mph across the diamond with good accuracy. Ran a 4.54 on his dig to first base. In the game, squared a couple pitches up, made plays in the infield, and played hard. Tee exit velocity of 82 mph. Hits out of a even base, he picks the front foot up and puts it down. Stays in position during batting practice, spreading the barrel around the yard. The path is long and flat to the ball, as he matures with physical strength he should be a very good follow. I like his game.

Right-handed hitting third baseman who can also play second base. At the plate, he hits out of a even base setup with a low hand set up. The swing is out and around to the ball, needs to be more direct to the ball to increase contact rate. The hands work fine, but the route of the barrel to the ball is much longer than need be. Tee exit velocity of 78. In the field, he showed a throwing velocity of 70 and a stable glove. The footwork and throwing strength need to improve as he progresses.  Ran a 4.88 down the line in the game
