Erik Randall Davis (born October 8, 1986) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. He made his Major League Baseball (MLB) debut with the Washington Nationals in 2013.

Career[edit]

Davis attended Mountain View High School in Mountain View, California, and Stanford University. The San Diego Padres selected Davis in the 13th round of the 2008 Major League Baseball draft.

Before the 2011 season, the Padres traded Davis to the Washington Nationals for Alberto González.[1] Davis started the 2013 season with the Triple-A Syracuse Chiefs. The Nationals promoted him to the major leagues for the first time on June 2, 2013.[2] He was optioned back to Syracuse on June 13, and recalled on June 29. Davis was optioned back to Syracuse on July 1 when Bryce Harper was activated from the disabled list. He was recalled again when rosters expanded on September 1.

Davis was placed on the 60-day disabled list with an elbow strain on February 13, 2014.[3] He would miss the remainder of the season. In 2015, Davis split time between Double-A and Triple-A.

On November 17, 2016, Davis signed a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.[4]

Davis's pitch repertoire consists of a four-seam fastball (93 mph), curveball (78 mph), and changeup (85 mph).[5]
