Brewers spend second pick on Tennessee OF

Here’s my blurb on University of Tennessee outfielder Kentrail Davis, who just went to the Brewers with the 39th pick in the First-Year Player Draft. It was the first of Milwaukee’s two supplemental first-round picks.

Kentrail Davis, OF, Tennessee: Short by professional baseball standards (5-foot-9) and stout (200 pounds), Davis burst onto the scene last year as a freshman, when he led Tennessee with a .330 batting average, 68 hits, 13 home runs, 44 RBIs and a .435 on-base percentage. He got a bit pull-happy this year but still batted .308 with nine homers and 30 RBIs. Davis played center field for the Vols but scouts cite his average throwing arm as one reason his future home could be in left. He is a left-handed hitter and a right-handed thrower, and was draft-eligible as a sophomore because he turns 21 later this month.
