Tennessee sophomore outfielder Kentrail Davis was selected Tuesday night by the Milwaukee Brewers with the 39th overall pick in the supplemental first round of the 2009 Major League Baseball draft. He was the 15th Vol ever to be taken in the first round of the MLB draft.

That's a pretty good result for KD coming off of a down year by his standards.

But if he stays and gets his draft stock back to the early 1st round, he will be looking at getting at least double that.

These teams are projecting where a guy will be, and even improved play next season probably won't help his draft position that much. He was drafted yesterday based on scouts projecting him to have above average power, a weak arm and decreasing foot speed (a forcast based on his body) that will regulate him to left. Yeah, showing to have more power would make him a more attractive left fielder to teams, but I'm not sure if a 5'8" guy can improve on an above average grade, and he's not going to develop an arm in one year.

Luke Hochevar, Mike Minor and Matt LaPorta are just 3 players that drastically improved their draft position in less than a year. It is very possible to improve your draft position in a year. A high schooler can go from round 3-4 to round one in one year, just look at Matt Hobgood. Same with college players. Grant Green propelled him self to the first round because of his great performance in the Cap Cod league.

Anyways, Kentrail is signing with the Brewers.

Yep he said he won't return next season. Smart for him because he really didn't answer any of the questions about him coming out of high school.
