by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (4/10/2013) Diamondbacks third base prospect Matt Davidson is having a torrid start to the season at Triple-A Reno. Davidson has hit safely in his first five games, batting .429 (9 for 21).
Davidson, who is considered the team's fourth-best prospect by MLB.com, also has two homers, four walks, five runs and six RBI. He's only struck out three times.
"All I want to do right now is put together some good at-bats," he said, per MLB.com. "Sure, I focus on my strikeout-to-walk ratio to try and take my walks. But you've got to keep that main focus on the team and doing whatever you need to do to help it win. Everything else just becomes easier if you do it that way."
