- Davies works with four pitches. He throws a four-seamer that averages 91-92, a cutter at about 88, a low-80s changeup, and a high-70s curveball. There may be some sinking two-seamers thrown in with the fastball group, but he seems to be four-seam heavy.
- He's a flyball pitcher, averaging only 39% groundballs over his 145 career appearances. Last year he could pick up grounders with his cutter (55%) and curve (49%), but his heater and changeup were both down around 30%.
- His control is suspect. Last year he threw over 40% balls with his fastball (league average 36%), cutter (35%), and curve (41%). His changeup was above-average in this regard.
- Overall, Davies will allow contact at about the league average, with below-average whiff rates on the fastball, cutter, and curve. His changeup elicited 37% whiffs on swings last year, making it a good pitch to go to in strikeout situations.
Davies is no ace, but he's not as bad as a 7.32 ERA. He's average at best in many categories, but his changeup looks pretty solid.
