    Matt Davidson

    Hello W/ Sox fans. Can you guys please give me some scoop on this kid ? Will he start the season in the minors? Looks like he has some power but does K a ton. How is his defense? I ask because if he is just average and isn't hitting he'll never be much. maybe move to the outfield. I picked him up in a trade ( fantasy baseball ) because he is a third baseman and only has Connor Gillespe in front of him

    he has potential to be an everday 3b,but regressed a ton last year.he'll be in the minors this year

    personal note-you probably shouldnt have picked him up,gillespe will be the everday 3b for us for the foreseeable future

    Wow! you guys are on top of it. That was a fast reply and thanks. I didn't pick him up. He was part of a trade. We can keep up to 5 minor leaguers on our roster. They don't have to be activated until they've been up at least two weeks during the season. Sept. is a free period so even if he comes up and plays everyday he is still considered a minor leaguer unless I activate him. He doesn't cost a thing sitting in my minor league reserves.

    .

    Most troubling to me is that he was supposed to be a strike-out or line-drive-to-all-fields type hitter, yet only managed 18 doubles in 539 plate appearances last year. That's awful. If he hit .199 with 34 doubles that would be a different story; then, you might start thinking of him as a potential platoon player.
