Khristopher Adrian "Khris" Davis (born December 21, 1987) is an American professional baseball outfielder for the Milwaukee Brewers of Major League Baseball.[1]

Background[edit]

Davis was born at Lakewood, California.[1] He played in high school baseball at Deer Valley (Ariz.) High School where he was twice named an All-State player.[1] Davis played college baseball at Cal State Fullerton.[1]

Professional career[edit]

Draft[edit]

Davis was first drafted by the Washington Nationals in the 29th round; he did not sign with the team but opted to remain playing college baseball.[1] He later was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the seventh round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft.[1]

Minor leagues[edit]

Davis began his minor league career in 2009. He played in one game for the Helena Brewers Rookie League club and ten games for the Arizona League Brewers; Davis combined for 2 home runs and a .237 batting average.[1] He spent the entire 2010 season competing for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in mid Single A level ball. He played in 128 games with 22 home runs and a .280 batting average.[1]

To start the 2011 season, he was promoted to the advance level Single A Brevard County Manatees.[1] After 90 games, he was sent to the AA level with the Huntsville Stars; Davis played 35 games with the team.[1] In 125 games that year, he batted .280 with 84 RBI and 17 home runs.[1]

In 2012, Davis returned to the Arizona League Brewers and the Hunstville Stars for six and 44 games respectively.[1] The Milwaukee Brewers promoted Davis to their top level below the Major Leagues with the AAA Nashville Sounds of the Pacific Coast League.[1] He played in 32 games for the Sounds with a .310 batting average.[1]

Major leagues[edit]

The Brewers added him to their 40-man roster during the 2013 season in September.[2] He will remain with the Major League team in the 2014 season to play everyday left field. The club kept him on their roster for his hitting power and his ability to hit home runs.[3]
