That said, for most surprising to me, I have to go with Davis. Though he hit 33 home runs last season, I figured that was about all there was to him: a big, strong guy who strikes out a lot and hits mistakes for home runs. This season, he's drawn a walk nearly twice as often and is striking out nearly 25 percent less often. Those are signs that he has possibly improved his plate discipline, meaning that his first two months of the season could be sustained at this level. It is a stunning improvement. He was the player of the month in the AL in April while batting .348/.442/.728. In May, he batted .364/.442/.768. He was the best player in the league in April, and he was even better in May.
