InDepth Spotlight: Wade Davis vs. Jose Bautista

>(Click to enlarge)

Tomorrow, Wade Davis will toe the rubber for the Tampa Bay Rays as they square off against the Toronto Blue Jays at home.  Davis has handled Jose Bautista (TOR) fairly well.  Last year, he held the righty slugger to one hit in 10 plate appearances, striking him out once.

As you can see from the above graphic, Davis has some trouble coming in on righties, while Bautista has been nearly impossible to pitch to for RHP.  Last year, Davis kept the ball away for the most part when throwing to Bautista, and it served him well.

The one hit Bautista managed was off a curveball that got a bit too much of the plate. Expect Davis to continue to keep the ball away from Bautista in tomorrow's matchup.
