Tyler Davis has certainly made his presence felt on both sides of the plate for the Humboldt Crabs this summer.

The Fresno State catcher is enjoying a big debut season with the longtime local collegiate summer club and leads the team in multiple categories.

And more impressively, he seems to be getting stronger as the season progresses and is coming off a monster few days at the plate.

He is 7-for-11 in three games this week, including hitting two home runs and a triple and driving in four RBIs in a 10-1 win over the Medford Rogues on Tuesday.

“Tyler’s a stud,” Crabs manager Robin Guiver said. “He’s a strong guy, he’s fast, he’s got power, he’s a competitor, he’s hard nosed. Everything about him is what you love and want in a player.”

For the season, Davis is batting .353, which is third best on the team, and he leads this year’s Crabs in home runs (seven), doubles (10) and RBIs (40).

And Guiver believes he’s got a bright future ahead of him.

“He’s super talented,” the manager said. “The sky’s the limit for him. He’s got a chance to plays baseball for a long time.”

Davis was 2-for-4 with two RBIs in a 13-3 win over the Fairfield Indians on Friday night.

He also has had an impact behind the plate this season.

“His ability to catch and block and throw has really impressed me,” Guiver said.

The Crabs and Indians continue their weekend series on Saturday night at 7 p.m.

They close out the three-game stand on Sunday, with first pitch set for 12:30 p.m.
