The New York Mets have signed outfielder Jaylin Davis to a MiLB deal and will likely report to AAA Syracuse.
Although drafted he was by the Minnesota Twins in the 24th round of the 2015 MLB June Amateur Draft, Davis’ MLB career began with the San Francisco Giants.
He’d end up spending parts of three seasons with the Giants, only appearing in 26 games and 68 Plate Appearances.
The likelihood of seeing him in the MLB level will be slim to none starting, however it’s a long year. But if the Mets are relying on Davis as a starter at any point of the season, they’re in trouble.
In the minors, Davis displayed above average pop as well as a decent average while in the batters box.
Through six seasons of minor league ball, Davis slashed .261/.341/.463/.804 with 107 doubles, 97 home runs, 319 RBI’s and 40 stolen bases.
