Another blurb. With video:
Braxton is a 6'3", 215lb High School Senior from the Asheville, NC area. He's not the masher that Gatewood projects to be, but he's presently a much better hitter than Gatewood and for that reason shows much more in game power. He's not as overall athletic as Gatewood, but he's roughly an average runner and should be an average defender in Right Field (and probably at First, as he fills out). What makes Davidson intriguing is that it's very easy to picture a guy who could regularly put up a .300/.380/.480 line in the Majors (roughly Matt Holliday-ish) and is a pretty safe bet to be a good major league regular, even if he doesn't quite reach that triple slash regularly.
I love this video below. Davidson is so quiet in the box. The tiniest of toe taps. No stride, he loads his hands before his swing starts and he still displays elite bat speed. His swing stays in the zone for plenty of time and he has just enough uppercut to generate lift. He hits to all fields and he has exquisite pitch recognition. There is literally not one thing in his swing that needs to change and that's rare - even for College hitters, not to mention a High School Senior. Around the 4 minute mark, Davidson is seen in game action. I count 17 pitches and, amazingly for a 17 year old, 11 pitches he doesn't swing at and only one of those is called a Strike by the Ump (that we can see on video, others may have had the Ump's call edited out, but only one looks like a strike). He swings 6 times, once for what looks like big contact, once for a groundball that looks fair off the bat and a few times at the end that look like the defensive swings a hitter will take to stay alive in an AB, with a shorter stroke.
