Rookie Davis was a pop up guy that the Yankees found in the 14th round of the 2011 draft. Davis got a cup of coffee in Charleston last year and put together two good starts there to end the season. The calendar flipping didn’t change that as Davis went five strong inning for his 2014 debut. Giving up two hits and a walk that was all that Davis gave up. He never seemed to be in trouble as he struck out five of the eighteen batters he faced. A three to four groundball to flyball ratio rounded out his night. The Yankees might have found a mid rotation starter in Davis as he is definitely someone to keep your eyes on.
Captain Clutch of the game:
Mike Ford made his full season debut and shoved as he rocked a three for three day with two runs scored and a walk for a 1.000/1.000/2.000 slash line. This was the best way to start the season for a guy who is a first base only prospect. To be one of those you have to hit and that slash line will definitely get it done.
Golden Sombrero of the game:
No player really had a terrible game except Tyler Wade. One of the better prospects started the year with a zero for five day as the DH and leadoff hitter. Wades promotion to Charleston is very aggressive but so was that of Torrens, Andujar, Katoh and Avelino.
Luis Severino will be toeing the bump for Charleston against Augusta tomorrow night. Severino has one of the best arms in the whole farm system and could be a fast mover not only up the minor league ladder but also up prospect lists.
