At age 26, Davidson had his first near-complete season at the big-league level. For those who simply needed cheap power from the waiver wire, Davidson scratched that itch with 26 homers in 443 plate appearances, but there are major concerns in his profile. His strikeout rate soared to 37.2 percent, which paired with his lack of walks (4.3 percent), generated a meager .220/.260/.452 line. To make matters worse, he hit just .209/.243/.450 against righties thanks to his 39.9 percent strikeout rate in that split. Nothing is guaranteed to Davidson as far as playing time in 2018. While the White Sox continue their rebuilding effort, they'll have plenty of competition for roster spots. Moreover, Davidson's below-average defense at third base will push him more toward regular DH duty when he plays since Jose Abreu is entrenched at first base. He's more likely to be squeezed from the White Sox's 25-man roster in 2018 than he is to repeat or improve upon what he did last season.
