Jonathan Davis
28-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2020 Fantasy Outlook
After logging 27 plate appearances during his initial stint in the majors in 2018, Davis was given considerably more playing time with Toronto last season. He didn't do much with the opportunity, slashing .181/.266/.265 with a trio of stolen bases in 37 games. Davis doesn't boast great power but has managed to reach double-digit home run totals in each of his last four minor-league seasons, topping out at 14 in 2016. His biggest asset is undoubtedly his plus-speed; he has averaged 23 stolen bases over the same time span and has succeeded in six of seven attempts in the majors. That's a useful tool, but Davis' tepid hitting -- he owns a career .258 minor-league average -- dampens his outlook considerably in spite of a demonstrated willingness to take a walk or hit-by-pitch. Toronto will be looking to fill an outfield spot next season, but it's a stretch to expect Davis to seize a starting role. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year, $569,000 contract with the Blue Jays in March of 2020.
Likely ticketed for Triple-A
OFToronto Blue Jays
March 22, 2020
Davis went 3-for-13 (.231) with all three hits going for extra bases (two doubles, one home run) in Grapefruit League play.
ANALYSIS
The athletic 27-year-old also stole a base on his only attempt. Davis was in camp competing for the 26th-man role on the big-league roster, but given that the Jays have two other outfielders out of minor-league options in Derek Fisher and Anthony Alford, Davis is expected to be at Triple-A Buffalo once again when the regular season begins.
