Davis was selected in the third round of Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft on Friday. He will earn a signing bonus in the area of $780,000 with considerations for tuition to continue his college studies at a later date.

Davis played much of last season in right field, but as he told me on Saturday, the Astros
want him to move up their system as a third baseman where he played at Elk Grove.
In his three seasons at Cal State Fullerton, Davis played in 159 games, starting 149, and batted .308 with 175 hits. He scored 87 runs and collected 33 doubles, six triples and 14 home runs to go along with 113 RBI. He drew 77 walks and stole 10 bases.
On the mound, Davis went 5-5 with a 2.98 ERA in 35 appearances, making eight starts. He tallied 11 career saves and struck out 48 batters in 66 and 1/3 innings pitched while issuing just 14 walks.
