Rajai Davis Stats

Rajai Davis was born on Sunday, October 19, 1980, in Norwich, Connecticut. Davis was 25 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 14, 2006, with the Pittsburgh Pirates. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Rajai Davis baseball stats page.

"Rajai Davis is a speedster, and he's not afraid to carry the label. He credits Major League stolen-base leader Rickey Henderson as a major influence on his career, likes Comerica Park for its extra outfield space, takes pride in his defense and plans to take advantage of the green light. And now, Davis is officially a Tiger. The team that had the reputation of plodding on the bases and in the field has now added arguably the fastest man on the free-agent market, continuing its stylistic makeover." - by Jason Beck on MLB.com (12/11/2013, 'Tigers finalize two-year deal with outfielder Davis', Source )

Did you know that Rajai Davis crushed a walk-off super slam on June 30, 2014 - one of the single rarest feats in baseball history? More than one hundred-seventy walk off grand slams have happened in Major League history (a relatively common feat), but a walk-off super slam occurs when the team is down by three runs when the grand slam is hit and Rajai was the eleventh American League player to accomplish the feat.

In 2009, Rajai Davis stole forty-one bases, fifth overall in the American League, his first top ten finish. Every year since then, Davis has been in the top five except 2011, where he was "only" seventh, and 2015, where he was dealing with injuries, that he clearly took care, finishing with his first stolen base championship in 2016! Detroit area sportswriter Blair Tatrault wrote:

Run, Rajai, Run! Detroit Tiger Davis Steals The Show

There are two venerable baseball sayings in play with regards to Rajai Davis.

Of course this is true. If you can't get on base often enough, all the speed and base-stealing instinct in the world is of little use.

Fortunately for the Tigers, though Davis is not a high OBP guy, he gets on base enough to justify his place in the lineup.

The second saying is "speed never slumps."

Once on base, Davis swaps his Clark Kent business suit for Superman's cape and automatically becomes a relentless force.

His approach to base running extends beyond mere opportunism to the realm of greed. Like teammate Ian Kinsler, he’s simply not satisfied with taking the extra base under typical conditions.

There are occasions, such as Tuesday night, when Rajai Davis bends the circumstances to his will, and claims a base he had no earthly right to pillage.

Now that, friends, is boundless greed.

And if we can invoke the words of fictional Wall Street icon Gordon Gekko, at least as they apply to the art of the base running, "Greed is good."

Source: SI.com. "Run, Rajai, Run! Detroit Tiger Davis Steals The Show." Blair Tatrault. Link .

The Toronto Blue Jays franchise record for stolen bases in a game is four: set first by Damaso Garcia on April 25, 1984 , tied by Dave Collins on August 5, 1984 , tied by Roberto Alomar on June 8, 1991 , tied by Otis Nixon on August 14, 1996 , and tied by Rajai Davis on July 28, 2013 .
