Player of the Day

Tuesday, July 23rd POD goes to Jonathan Davis

 

Davis hasn’t been his productive self since getting a taste of the ML in 2019. Since his return to the Bisons on July 7th, Jonathan Davis is batting just .196 with one walk and 17K. This coming from a guy who walked 12 times in 20 June games and 9 times in 8 May games.

 

Well if you aren’t going to walk, you may as well hit bombs and that is what Davis did against the Knights. The Herd went back-to-back in the 1st inning with Bichette and Brito going yard. Davis followed suit with a two-run two-out jack to give the Herd a 4-0 lead.

 

He was at it again leading off the 4th inning with his 9th HR of 2019. Buffalo 6 and Knights.  1.

 

Davis is batting just .243 (kinda what we expect) with 40 runs, 13 doubles, 9HR, 23RBI, 29/54 BB/K with 5SB (not what we expect). Despite his low walk rate in July, Davis still owns an impressive .379OBP and .858OPS with the Herd in 2019.

 

The Bo Bichette and Griffin Conine Show

 

Bo Bichette went 1-for-4 with a solo HR in his first at-bat. He is batting .273 with 3HR and 7RBI in his last 10 games. Overall, Bo is slugging .507 with 15 doubles, and 8HR in 51 Triple-A games.

 

Griffin Conine and the Lugnuts were off today.
