AJ likes Davis

“He’s right in the middle of it,” Hinch said. “His at-bat quality in the minors has been very good. He hasn’t gotten the opportunity in the big leagues. We want to make sure he gets a look at a number of different spots. With all the left-handed outfielders we have, he’s a perfect complement if he can continue to put up really good at-bats.”

J. Davis bats RH, and depth wise they are light in that category in terms of true outfielders.

Don't think he makes the team, but I get why he's there and why they want him in the org at least.

Baddoo has not impressed so far. That could be one less OH OF.

Adding to your point, Davis is also a plus defensive OF. Baddoo and Carpenter are not.

Doesn't mean that he's a better option than either overall, but Davis has at least one tool that they do not as well.

Is he Trayce Thompson v2?

Nobody is Trayce Thompson v2.  Nobody is Trayce Thompson 2.0.  Nobody is Trayce Thompson Jr.  There can not, will not, shall not be another Trayce Thompson.

OK, I suppose there could be a Jr, I might have gone too far there.

He has some cred as a base stealer but that is not very fashionable.
