If you haven’t heard of Rookie Davis yet, we’ll just have to let Cincinnati Reds fanatic Charlie Sheen introduce you.

Not long before Sheen’s tweet, Davis shared that he was excited to tell his family he would be breaking camp with the Reds after spending the spring in a battle with several youngsters for a spot in the roster.

Davis found out about his celebrity endorsement soon after.

Whether he is in the starting rotation or coming out of the bullpen remains to be seen, but that is one heck of an endorsement right out of the gate.
Opening Day is Monday at Great American Ball Park.

Here's more on Davis, who was acquired in the Aroldis Chapman trade with the New York Yankees.
