We continue the countdown today with number 68, Oregon State RHP/outfielder Dylan Davis. In His sophomore campaign with the Beavers, Davis continued to prove that his freshman season was no fluke. An All-Pac-12 First Team selection, the Beaver outfielder played in 63 games during the 2013 season, starting in 62 of them. The 6’0” sophomore led the team with a .335 average and his 22 doubles, 61 RBI and 86 hits were good enough for first in the Pac-12. The talented two-way player was also named the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Corvallis Regional.
The Redmond, WA native attended Redmond High School where he was named All-League and All-State after his senior season. Davis not only showed promise at the plate but also proved to be a threat on the mound. Davis went 7-3 for Redmond while posting a 3.92 ERA and striking out 61 batters in 50 IP. At the plate, Davis batted .420 with 10 homeruns and 35 RBI.
During the 2013 summer, Davis returned to the prestigious Cape Cod League, this time as part of the Falmouth Commodores. The outfielder joined the Commodores late due to the Beavers progress in Omaha but quickly became a top contender in the Cape. In 29 games, Davis was able to post a .317 average as well as collect 33 hits and 34 RBI. Davis was named to the CCBL’s All-Star game where he started for the Western Division.
With a fastball that has touched triple digits and a sign of raw power at the plate, Davis is in a position that many players would dream to be in. As he returns to Oregon State for his junior season only time will tell which path the talented Davis will choose. Either way, the Beavers will be happy to have him in the lineup.
