Bryshear Barnett "Brock" Davis (born October 19, 1943) is an American former Major League Baseball outfielder whose professional career, including minor league service, lasted for 13 seasons (1963–1975). Davis was born in Oakland, California and attended John C. Fremont High School in Los Angeles and California State University, Los Angeles. Davis attended high school with future professional baseball players Leon McFadden, Willie Crawford, Bobby Tolan and Bob Watson. He threw and batted left-handed, stood 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) tall and weighed 165 pounds (75 kg).

Davis made his big league debut at age 19 with the Houston Colt .45s on April 9, 1963. He appeared in 34 games during the 1963 season (including the September 27 game in which all nine of the Colts starters were rookies) but did not see significant action in the major leagues again until 1971, when he played for the Chicago Cubs.

He was traded along with Jim Colborn and Earl Stephenson by the Cubs to the Milwaukee Brewers for outfielder José Cardenal on December 3, 1971. Davis batted .318 in 1972 in a utility role with the Brewers. His final game as a major-leaguer was on October 4, 1972.
