Potential Solution #1 – J.D. Davis

The former third-round pick out of Cal State Fullerton, Davis is the current third baseman of the Corpus Christ Hooks. He has been on a tear in May hitting .351 with more extra-base hits (16) than strikeouts (15).

Davis is starting to make a name for himself and hopefully, for his sake, this is just the beginning. He took home Texas League player of the week for the second week in a row – and he plays on the same team as the Astros’ second overall pick Alex Bregman.

When you outshine the likes of Alex Bregman, who had a pretty good week of his own, you’re sure to draw at least some looks from the higher ups. There is no way he beats former #2 overall pick Alex Bregman to Houston and certainly has the longest odds on this list.

Chances he’s the answer: 99 to 1
