Jaylin Davis: Hits free agency
The Mets released Davis on July 16.
The 29-year-old outfielder saw time in the big leagues with the Giants from 2019 through 2021 and with the Red Sox in 2022, but he played exclusively in the minors during his first season in the Mets organization. Over 309 plate appearances at Triple-A Syracuse, Davis slashed .224/.343/.440 with 13 home runs and two stolen bases before getting cut loose shortly after the All-Star break. Davis will seek out another minor-league deal elsewhere or perhaps explore his options overseas now that he's a free agent.... See More ... See Less

Davis' contract was selected from Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
With Rafael Devers (hamstring) moving to the injured list, the Red Sox summoned some position player depth in the form of Davis. The righty-hitting outfielder probably won't play much while up with the big club. He hit .236/.335/.382 in 56 games at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less

Red Sox's Jaylin Davis: Scooped up by BoSox
The Red Sox claimed Davis off waivers from the Giants and optioned him to Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Davis will be moving on to the third organization of his career after he initially joined the Twins as a 24th-round draft pick in 2015 before he was shipped to the Giants in a 2019 deadline deal. The 27-year-old outfielder saw big-league action in each of the last three years but struggled to distinguish himself, accruing a .159/.221/.270 slash line across 68 career plate appearances with the Giants. He'll retain a 40-man roster spot as he joins Boston's organization, but he likely won't be in store for a call-up to the majors unless the Red Sox are down multiple outfielders.... See More ...
