Biographical Information[edit]

Infielder J.D. Davis was a closer at California State University, Fullerton when not playing the field. He was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 3rd round of the 2014 amateur draft as a position player, after having been a 5th round selection by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2011 coming out of high school.

He made his debut with the Astros in August of 2017, hitting .226 with 4 homers in 24 games. In 2018, he hit .175 in 42 games for Houston. Both seasons, he made one appearance as a pitcher, and was impressive, throwing over 90 mph with good movement and recording 4 strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings. This has led observers to think he might have a future as a two-way player. On January 6, 2019, he was traded to the New York Mets along with Cody Bohanek in return for three minor leaguers: Ross Adolph, Scott Manea and Luis Santana.

Notable Achievements[edit]

  • Won one World Series with the Houston Astros in 2017 (he did not play in the World Series)
