Matt Davidson earns second Triple-A Player of the Week selection
Matt Davidson is on a rampage in Triple-A.
The Oakland A’s corner infielder has spent most of the 2022 season in Triple-A while showcasing his tremendous power. That was especially the case last week when he was named as the Triple-A Player of the Week for the second time this year.
Matt Davidson has impressive week for Las Vegas Aviators
It is no wonder that Davidson was able to bring home another award this season. He went on an impressive tear for the Aviators, belting six homers with 29 total bases as he produced a .429/.478/1.381 batting line in his 23 plate appearances. That was certainly the type of production that would draw attention.
This continues what has been a strong showing in Triple-A this year. Davidson has produced a solid .294/.401/.583 batting line with 23 homers in his 327 plate appearances for Las Vegas. Add in his brief time in Reno when he was a part of the Diamondbacks organization, and he has 31 homers on the year.
Davidson did not have that same level of success for the A’s. He had signed a minor league deal as they desperately attempted to find something competent to fill out the lineup but struggled in his brief time in the majors. He had just four hits, including a homer, in his 24 plate appearances, striking out ten times, before being sent back to Triple-A.
It is possible that Davidson could get another chance at the majors at some point. His tremendous showing in Triple-A could entice another team, potentially even the A’s, to bring him on board for 2023. He likely would not command more than a minor league deal, but if he can catch lightning in a bottle, his power could be a game changer.
Matt Davidson had an incredible week for the Las Vegas Aviators. It is not a surprise that he earned the Player of the Week award.
