Chicago White Sox 3B Matt Davidson (foot) underwent surgery on his broken right foot Friday, July 1, and had a screw inserted to repair the fracture. He will be re-evaluated with an X-ray in two weeks and the club will determine a long-term recovery plan at that point.
Fantasy Tip: The 25-year-old Davidson made the International League All-Star team while playing for Class AAA Charlotte but sustained the foot injury while running the bases in his season debut for the ChiSox Thursday, June 30. He's only worth stashing in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues if you can afford the roster space.

Chicago White Sox 3B Matt Davidson (foot) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a fractured right foot. He sustained the injury while running the bases in a game versus the Minnesota Twins Thursday, June 30. In a corresponding move, INF Carlos Sanchez was promoted from Class AAA Charlotte.
Fantasy Tip: The 25-year-old Davidson was playing in his first MLB game since 2013 and had been named to the International League All-Star team after batting .268 with 10 home runs and 46 RBI in 75 games for Charlotte this year. Sanchez hit just .154 with one RBI in 29 plate appearances during his first stint with the parent club earlier this season and isn't a great fantasy option.

Chicago White Sox 3B Matt Davidson could open the season in the big leagues, according to general manager Rick Hahn. Currently, he is listed behind veteran INFs Jeff Keppinger and Conor Gillaspie, but Hahn is not ruling him out. "It certainly is possible he breaks with us opening day, but if that's not the case we'll see a lot of him this season once we feel he is truly ready," Hahn said in a television interview. "There's still a few areas he's going to improve in and we need to see some refinement."

Chicago White Sox 3B Matt Davidson will be squarely in the mix to win the starting third base job this spring. "We still have guys who can play there, but it's a competition, definitely," said manager Robin Ventura. "He has every reason to go in there and try to win the job." 3Bs Conor Gillaspie and Jeff Keppinger are in the mix for competition at the hot corner.

The Chicago White Sox have traded RP Addison Reed to the Arizona Diamondbacks for 3B Matt Davidson.
Fantasy Tip: Davidson is expected to be the team's third baseman next season but likely will not be more than an option in AL-only leagues. Matt Lindstrom may be the top choice to close at this point, but the team still has time to address the closer position during the offseason.
