Rajai Davis was a member of the Toronto Blue Jays in 2013 and notched a very nice WAR of 1.8. 2013 was Davis’ second best year WAR-wise, in 2009, he had a 3.2 WAR.

Doogie reports that sources are telling him that the Twins are willing to go multiple years on a contract for the 33-year-old Davis.

Davis debuted in 2006 and has traveled around the league ever since. Davis has played for the Pittsburgh Pirates, San Francisco Giants, Oakland A’s and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Davis throws right and bats right.

    Seems like a good fit, depending on dollars. Hicks/Presley can still make the roster, and play all 3 outfield positions as needed late in games or to give Willingham and Arcia days off. With the arrival of Buxton likely in 2015, I wouldn’t give him more than 2 years, though.

      I’m intrigued by the stolen bases Davis apparently can get. It’d be fun for the Twins to have a true speedster.
