D.J. Davis video by Baseball America

With the 17th overall draft pick, the Blue Jays selected high school outfielder D.J. Davis of Mississippi. Check out the swing and speed. The swing is compact and short to the ball. Early stride and load and establishment of front-side resistance, which is what I try to teach my 13-year-old AAU team. Judging from this clip -- and let's not get crazy -- but Davis appears to show an advanced approach. Anxious to see the other tools. John Lott's early story here.
