Profile of Twins 49th round MLB draft pick: LeAndre (Clarence) Davis SS

With their 49th pick the Twins selected 5'11" 160 lbs, LeAndre (Clarence) Davis SS from Georgia Perimeter College, also selected by the Twins in Round 13 of last year's draft out of high school.

A report from MLB Bonus Baby:
The other hitting name I wanted to see was LeAndre Davis, a freshman shortstop for Perimeter who went unsigned as the Twins’ 13th round pick in 2009. Unfortunately, Davis has been in a season-long slump, losing ground both in terms of draft stock and in terms of playing time. He’s not the regular shortstop for Perimeter anymore, and he didn’t play during the game I attended. I think he’s played himself off of any sort of early draft contention for 2010, instead putting himself in a position to reestablish his value next year as a junior college sophomore, when he’ll be more signable.

Looks like the Twins are giving him a second chance and he should probably take it.
