White Sox's Matt Davidson: On bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson is not in the lineup Friday against Houston.

Davidson is hitting just .216 so far this year, but a 17.5 percent walk rate and five home runs have given him a strong 148 wRC+. He's striking out a third of the time, though, in line with his career numbers, so he'll have to keep walking and crushing the ball whenever he happens to get a hold of it if he's to remain an effective player. Wellington Castillo will be the designated hitter in his absence.

White Sox's Matt Davidson: Delivers game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Rays.

Davidson delivered in the bottom of the eighth inning with the White Sox down a run, belting his fifth home run of the season, a two-run shot that snapped the White Sox's five-game losing streak and salvaged one win on their six-game homestand. Prior to the game-winning hit, Davidson had struck out looking in two at-bats with three men combined in scoring position. The early returns are positive for Davidson, who is walking more, striking out less and not chasing pitches outside the zone.

White Sox's Matt Davidson: Exhibits new plate approach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson has swung at fewer pitches outside zone and is second on the White Sox with six walks through eight games.

The slugging third baseman, who walked just 19 times over 443 plate appearances in 2017, is seeing positive results early on from a rededicated approach. Hopefully it spurs Davidson to continue looking for good pitches to drive. "I'm just trying to swing at good pitches, not swing at balls and walk more," Davidson told Cat Garcia of the Chicago Sun-Times. "If I decide to swing, [I] just swing at better pitches. I think overall the season is going to go well, so really that's my main goal." Davidson has uncorked his swing at a 36.2 percent clip this season, down from 48.4 in 2017 when he led the team with a 37.2 K%. This is an extremely small sample size, and it can all go awry if he experiences an extended slump, but it looks like Davidson is trying to be a more well-rounded hitter this year while still being a home run threat.

White Sox's Matt Davidson: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays, Brain Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-TImes reports.

Davidson will head to the bench for the first time all season after starting each of the White Sox's first eight games. While it's a small sample size, the 27-year-old is off to a solid start to the 2018 campaign, slashing .250/.400/.714 with four homers, eight RBI and nine runs scored through 35 plate appearances. Tyler Saladino will serve as the DH and hit eighth in his stead Monday.

White Sox's Matt Davidson: Scores four runs against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson went 2-for-3 with two walks, an RBI and four runs in Chicago's 9-7 loss against the Tigers on Thursday.

After following up his monster three-homer Opening Day performance with an 0-for-11 skid, Davidson has gotten back on track the last two games, with three hits in his last six at-bats, including a solo home run and Thursday's two-hit, four-run outburst. He's now got a 1.354 OPS through his first 22 at-bats and while he won't maintain that blistering of a pace over the course of a full season, Davidson will keep getting at-bats as long as he keeps hitting. Ride this hot start for as long as it lasts.
