Rangers' Matt Davidson: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Davidson was in camp as a two-way player, though he was ultimately fighting to break camp in a utility role. Manager Chris Woodward said the Rangers are more intrigued by Davidson as a hitter, so he'll primarily focus on his swing during his time with Triple-A Nashville, according to Grant. He hit .206/.325/.500 with three homers and a 3:14 K:BB in 15 Cactus League games (34 at-bats). There are currently no plans for Davidson to pitch in the minors.

Rangers' Matt Davidson: Pitches sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson pitched in a simulated game Friday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The Rangers plan to have him throw another sim game early next week before having him pitch in a minor-league game. They've backed off on their plan to have him pitch in the Cactus League. In addition to dabbling as a pitcher, Davidson is competing with infielder Logan Forsythe for a utility infielder role.

Rangers' Matt Davidson: Pitches again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson threw a second bullpen session Tuesday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

The Rangers anticipate the third baseman making at least two appearances in a Cactus League game before the end of spring training. Manager Chris Woodward is serious about carrying eight relievers, which limits hitters off the bench. If Davidson can do a credible job as a reliever, he would effectively give the team a 26-man roster by serving as both a hitting and pitching option.

Rangers' Matt Davidson: Throws live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson threw live batting practice Saturday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Davidson is a corner infielder by trade, but the Rangers are auditioning him as a possible extra reliever. He made three appearances for the White Sox in 2018, delivering three scoreless innings. Three-fifths of the Rangers' projected starting rotation are returning from Tommy John elbow surgery, and manager Chris Woodward is considering carrying eight relievers early in case starters can't deep into games. If Davidson can be a credible arm out of the bullpen, that would allow Woodward to have seven traditional relievers while carrying a fourth backup position player.

Rangers' Matt Davidson: Lands in Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davidson agreed to a minor-league deal with the Rangers on Friday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Davidson talked about pursuing a two-way role with the White Sox before being non-tendered by the team in November, and it sounds as though the Rangers are interested in exploring that idea. The 27-year-old's .226/.295/.435 career line isn't good enough for regular at-bats for a player limited to the infield corners defensively, but if he can eat some innings out of the bullpen as well he'd likely deserve a roster spot. He's retired nine of the 11 batters he's faced in the big leagues thus far, though that sample is obviously far too short to conclude that he'll be a viable option on the mound.
