RotoWire News: Davies is a lock for the Opening Day rotation, according to Brewers manager Craig Counsell, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. (3/2/2017)

Profile: If you're looking for the next Kyle Hendricks, this is a great spot to start. Like Hendricks, Davies has a great changeup paired with good command and below average fastball velocity. If he finds a way to pitch inside to lefties and righties, he might get most of the way there. The problem is that we don't even know exactly what Hendricks is, if you take away the awesome defense behind him. Because we know that Milwaukee doesn't have that sort of defense, right now at least. And not the same home park. And betting on elite command in a time when we're just starting to understand how to measure command is a bit risky, too. It still makes the most sense to bet on gas and strikeouts first... but if the price drops far enough, and your league is deep enough, it also makes sense to try something different. Davies could be a really decent back-end starter for your team, on the cheap. (Eno Sarris)

The Quick Opinion: Great command and a plus changeup is a great place to start. Davies may need to see some defensive improvement behind him, and get a bit of luck, and maybe improve a bit in terms of where he puts the ball, but he won't cost you much!
