Davidson went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and three runs scored during Thursday's win over Minnesota.
Davidson has caught fire of late with seven homers, 11 RBI and 11 runs through his past 10 games. The heater has him up to a respectable .265/.310/.577 slash line for the season with 17 bombs, 38 RBI and 30 runs. Davidson is taking advantage of his consistent playing time, and his fantasy value is trending up.
Davidson stayed hot Saturday, going 2-for-4 with a home run in the win over the Blue Jays.
He's now gone deep in five of his last six games to raise his home run count to 15 in 179 at-bats this season. Davidson still has an alarmingly high strikeout rate, coming into Saturday with a 38.8 percent mark in that category, but it appears that he's found his power stroke. He'll draw a platoon advantage for Sunday's contest against southpaw J.A. Happ, who is allowing 2.3 home runs per nine innings this season.
Davidson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Orioles.
Davidson homered in all four games against the O's, going 7-for-15 with four homers, eight RBI and five runs scored during the series. This breakout comes after a 10-game homer-less stretch, during which he hit just .139. As long as Davidson, who leads the White Sox with 14 homers, presents a threat to opposing pitchers, he'll continue to get at-bats as the team's primary designated hitter. With very little MLB track record to fall back upon, the question remains whether he can continue being a source of power while maintaining a non-lethal batting average. The 26-year-old is hitting .259 through 52 games, but that's fueled by an above-average .345 BABIP.
Davidson went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in Wednesday's loss to Baltimore.
He's now homered in each of the first three games of this four-game set with the O's, and they surely aren't looking forward to facing him yet again Thursday. Davidson's power output remains impressive, but he also struck out yet again Wednesday and remains a liability in batting average. Hitting eighth in the order, as he did in this game, also hurts him in the counting stats.
Davidson went 1-for-4 with a grand slam against Baltimore on Tuesday.
He's homered in the first two games of this series, driving home six total runs, so the O's surely aren't happy to have two more games against Davidson and the White Sox in this series. The 26-year-old has slugged a dozen homers in 50 games this year, which is an impressive pace, but he's also hitting a meager .245 thanks to a strikeout rate that's approaching 40 percent. While the power is tantalizing, Davidson is not for the risk-averse fantasy owners among us.
