Davis attended Dixon High School in Holly Ridge, North Carolina. As a 15-year-old in early 2009, he committed to play college baseball at East Carolina University.[1] Davis was drafted by the New York Yankees in the 14th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft.[2] He signed with the Yankees instead of attending East Carolina.[3] He made his professional debut in 2012 with the Gulf Coast Yankees. In 2013, he pitched for the Staten Island Yankees and Charleston RiverDogs and spent 2014 with Charleston.[4] He started 2015 with the Tampa Yankees.[5] The Yankees added him to their 40-man roster after the season.[6]

On December 28, 2015, Davis was traded to the Reds with Caleb Cotham, Tony Renda, and Eric Jagielo in exchange for Aroldis Chapman.[7] Davis made the Reds’ Opening Day roster in 2017[8] and made his major league debut on April 6 against the Phillies.

Davis picked up his first major league win on May 3, pitching 5 scoreless innings over the Pirates in a 7–2 win.

He was outrighted to AAA on August 27, 2018 and became a free agent at the conclusion of the season. [9]

On February 18, 2019, Davis signed a minor league deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates and was invited to spring training. His contract was purchased on May 25. On September 1, Davis was outrighted off the Pirates roster and he elected free agency following the season.[10]
