    Sure hope this guy's foot has heeled.


    He turns 26 right before the season starts and the team should have plenty of openings.


    The kid was a heck of a prospect b4 the White Sox acquired him.


    After stinking up Charlotte in 2014 & 2015, he appeared to make his way back in 2016 only to break his foot in his MLB debut.


    From where I am sitting, the DH job is wide open.


    The same can be said for 3B or 1B if Frazier or Abreau get traded


    Shame Davidson can't play catcher.


    I would think with any kind of spring, Davidson makes this team

    Absolutely - he looked like a decent prospect when the Sox first got him, went into the toilet for next 2.5 years but finally managed to grab onto a lifesaver right before his career drowned.  Was still hitting only .250 at mid-June 2016 but his 15 game .365 tear in late June got promoted to the Sox. Sadly, Sox are desperate enough for hitting prospects that they have to pin hopes on 15-20 game hitting streaks but at his age (26) a handful of guys have actually "turned the corner". Don't know if Davidson could be one of them, but two things are for sure at this point. 1 - Sox can easily afford to give him another shot.  2 - he ain't exactly got stiff competition (Garcia) particularly if/when Abreu or Frazier get traded.

    I was referring to the approximately 2 good weeks he had in the minors before he came to Chicago and fucked up his foot.

    Doubt that Charlotte fans were all that impressed with Davidson's two week hot streak, having seen 2.5  seasons of his consistent whiffing and struggling to crack the Mendoza line.   But who knows, maybe he can turn the proverbial corner at age 26.  Not like the Sox have much to lose by giving him an audition this year.
