The Oakland A's have promoted Logan Davidson, the no. 23 prospect in the organization according to MLB Pipeline, to their Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas.

Davidson, a former first-round Draft pick, has taken a somewhat unconventional path through the Minor League system although the 25-year-old infielder has steadily made progress toward his ultimate goal of reaching the Major Leagues.

Logan Davidson earned a promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas after an impressive start to the season. In 48 games with Double-A Midland, Davidson showcased his skills by batting .297 with an .863 OPS. He also bagged seven home runs, 11 doubles, one triple, and recorded 28 RBIs and two stolen bases while at it.

Davidson, the son of former Twins and Astros outfielder Mark Davidson, made a name for himself during his time as a shortstop at Clemson University. Selected by the A's as the 29th overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, Davidson spent most of 2021 and the previous season at Double-A, dealing with a nagging groin injury that impacted his performance at the plate. Despite this setback, he maintained a respectable slash line of .252/.337/.406 in 111 games.

Defensively, Davidson has proved himself to be a valuable utility infielder, having played over 10 games at first, second, and third base this season.

Davidson's promotion to Triple-A marks another step for Logan as he gets closer to his Major League aspirations. Here's hoping he makes it there with the A's!
