2022 Fantasy Outlook
After failing to break camp with the Braves out of spring training, Davidson capped off his roller coaster 2021 by starting Game 5 of the World Series against the Astros. He did not factor into the decision after allowing two runs over two innings as the opener, but it was a nice cap on his season after the southpaw spent four months on IL with forearm inflammation. Prior to his injury, Davidson was serviceable in four starts for Atlanta, allowing eight runs over 20 innings (3.60 ERA) with 18 strikeouts. However, the lefty's command woes persisted (3.6 BB/9) after he appeared to improve in that area over 23 Triple-A innings (2.0 BB/9). Davidson doesn't appear to have much else to prove in the minors after compiling a 2.76 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across five minor-league seasons. He'll begin the 2022 campaign on Atlanta's major-league roster but is likely to serve out of the bullpen and as a potential sixth starter. Read Past Outlooks

PAtlanta Braves
May 17, 2022
Davidson (1-0) earned the win during Tuesday's 3-0 shutout of Milwaukee, allowing three hits and three walks with three strikeouts in five scoreless innings.
ANALYSIS
Making his first start and second appearance of 2022, Davidson spread the damage relatively evenly across his five innings and was never in any real danger. On the downside, the 26-year-old only tossed 38 of 69 pitches for strikes with seven of the swinging variety and he's now walked five total batters in 7.2 innings. It's unclear if Davidson did enough to earn a second turn in the rotation.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
There were some rumblings that Davidson could challenge for a rotation spot amidst the condensed nature of the 2020 season, but the left-hander ended up spending most of the campaign at the Braves' alternate training site. He did get a chance to make his big-league debut against Boston in late September but struggled mightily, yielding seven runs (two earned) over 1.2 frames. Davidson walked four batters in that start and missed the plate on over half of his pitches, highlighting the command issues that dogged him over his previous two minor-league seasons. While he ascended from High-A to Triple-A during that stretch and posted otherwise good numbers, Davidson also registered a troubling 4.1 BB/9. He has an electric fastball and a good enough arsenal to succeed as a starter, but his role could ultimately be determined by his ability to get the ball over the plate.
