Most of it is behind a paywall.  I don't know much about Davis and his numbers aren't great in A ball right now.  Apparently he had a shoulder injury of some kind. Can someone fill me in on him a bit more?

This is a good article... 

 

Good guy. Went to Appy State but got hurt his junior year. As Radcliff said in the article, he would have easily been drafted in the top ten rounds, before the injury. Twins took him and let him rehab the rest of the year. Got off to a monster start at ETown last year and quickly moved up to Cedar Rapids, where he did alright.

 

He's not a huge guy, but very strong. Good guy. 

 

Just so I don't type too much and let others add more (and he'd be a good guy for the Adopt-A-Prospect)... here is a Q&A we did with him in November.

He's not Aaron Judge by any means but he's very muscular, I've seen him crush balls out of JetBlue Park (RedSox stadium copy of Fenway) with what seemed like a batflick.  Jaylin is also one of the quietest softest spoken guys you'll ever meet.  Kind of meets the old adage, Speak softly and carry a big stick.
