Ex-Knight Davidson hurts foot in White Sox debut
On what should have been a special day for him, Matt Davidson broke his right foot rounding first after an RBI single in his White Sox debut Thursday.
“You could see it when he went from second to third,” manager Robin Ventura said after the 6-5 win over Minnesota. “I know he’s not a good runner, but it was remarkably poor at that point.”
The former Arizona first-round pick was traded to Chicago before the 2014 season but had two poor years in the minors before this month’s selection as a Triple-A All-Star Game with the Charlotte Knights.
Chicago also lost Kevan Smith to back spasms an hour before his scheduled big league debut in April, and Jason Coats had to leave his first major league game after colliding with J.B. Shuck in the outfield earlier this month.
