A big, strong third baseman in the Matt Williams tradition, Arizona prospect Matt Davidson was traded to the White Sox during the winter of 2013. Davidson slashed .237/.333/.434 during a month with the Diamondbacks in 2013, but it's the .280/.350/.481 AAA line (with 17 homers in 115 games) that the White Sox paid for. He strikes out a bit too much, but he makes up for it with overall offensive chops. On defense, he's solid if not spectacular, more than enough to stay in favor on the homer-happy south side.

Matt Davidson has been traded to the White Sox for young closer Addison Reed. Reed should thrive in the desert, while Davidson should enjoy the friendlier fences in Chicago.
