Troy, NY - The Houston Astros have promoted third baseman J.D. Davis from their New York-Penn League Class A affiliate in Troy, NY to their high A affiliate in Davenport, IA.
In 30 games for the Tri-City ValleyCats, Davis was among the NYPL leaders in both home runs (5) and runs batted in (20).
The 21-year-old was Houston's 3rd round draft pick last month out of Cal State Fullerton.
