Blue Jays: Revisiting first round selections since the 2009 amateur draft
2012- D.J. Davis: Drafted 1st round, 17th overall
D.J. Davis was another high school selection for the Toronto Blue Jays. Unlike the past three years, the Blue Jays decided to use their first draft selection on an outfielder instead of a starting pitcher.
Davis would begin his professional career with the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays in Rookie ball in 2012. He would also make appearances with the Bluefield Blue Jays and the Vancouver Canadians the same year, with a combined slash line of .250/.355/.386.
From 2013 to 2018, Davis would never advance higher than Class-A-Advanced league, spending three years with the Dunedin Blue Jays from 2015-2018. He would never bat over a .260 AVG and would slash .232/.314/.306 while he was with Dunedin over the three-year timeframe.
In mid-June of 2018, D.J. Davis was released by the organization and is currently a free agent.
