Matt Davidson signed a minor-league deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers, which includes an invite to Spring Training, according to Mark Feinsand.
Davidson slashed .163/.234/.395 with three home runs and 11 RBI across 43 at-bats with the Reds in 2020 before being out-righted to Triple-A back in October. The 29-year-old has displayed some power at the major league level before when he slugged 26 and 20 home runs back in 2017 and 2018, respectively, as a member of the White Sox.
