Davidson spent most of last season down in Triple A where he thrived. Although, Davidson did did appear in 31 games for the big league team. Davidson batted .280 down in Triple A Reno, he also hit 17 home runs and drove in 74 runs. This will fill a need for the White Sox, they don’t exactly have much depth at the position.
However, they are giving up a pretty major piece to their bullpen. Addison Reed, 24, has been a top prospect in the organization for some time now and broke out just this past year.
Reed finished the 2013 campaign with 40 saves and a 3.79 ERA. Reed’s 40 saves ranked fifth in the American League. He also had 72 strikeouts in 68 relief appearances for the south siders.
Giving up Reed is going to be a blow to this teams bullpen, but acquiring young position players and building around them is clearly what the White Sox front office is going for.
