Badler On Wade Davis

Wade DavisBen Badler at Baseball America had this to say about Wade Davis from last Sunday's game:
Davis, 23, has shown a plus fastball all season, and on Sunday he worked at 92-94 mph and touched 96 multiple times while mixing in a two-seamer as well.

Some scouts who have seen Davis this season say that his curveball has flashed as a plus pitch, but it’s been inconsistent in terms of its quality and his command of the pitch. Davis’ curve ranged from 75-82 mph on Sunday, though it was at its best in the higher end of that range with power and sharp break.
Davis didn’t throw much of his changeup, a pitch he said he hopes will come around eventually. Instead, his mid-80s slider (a pitch he began using at the end of last season) is becoming his third pitch, showing more depth as the season has progressed.
