Jaylin Davis debuts in RF tonight for the Giants. Here's a capsule review from NBC Sports:
"...Giants people have described Davis, called up Wednesday, as a good runner, and that certainly showed as he got his first big league hit out of the way. Davis did so quickly, reaching on an infield single in his first at-bat. He hit a slow grounder to third and got up to 30.1 feet per second while beating out a wide throw.
That was the second-best sprint speed of the season by a Giant, trailing just an Austin Slater dash of 30.4 feet per second. Anything above 30 is considered elite..."
An infield hit and a BB for Davis. I must admit, I didn't know Davis possessed this much speed. Nice combo with his power burst. The Giants press is giddy about a guy they assumed was just another power bat.
The article has a quote from Davis, as well. Seems like he has a nice shot at a decent major league career.
24th round draft pick by the Twins. Kudos to Ricky Taylor, who signed him ( I hope he got the proper love from the previous and current FO for his fine work). You can't fault the Twins for making the move, hopefully it works out for the best for both teams. It was just very unfortunate that the Twins couldn't have worked out a larger deal with the Giants that involved Bumgarner and additional Twins prospects in the transaction.

Joyous, fact-based and tireless Twins fan for 40+ years, who unfortunately has been characterized as-
"forcing Twins fans to endure more bitter, baseless, and tiresome cheap shots about the Twins FO."
