Chicago White Sox third baseman Matt Davidson sustained a fractured foot in his first appearance for the club, the team announced Thursday. 

Davidson will have the foot examined by team doctors on Friday to determine the extent of the damage.

The 25-year-old fractured the injury while rounding first base after hitting an RBI single in the fourth inning. Davidson stayed in the game, eventually scoring a run, but struggled to get around the bases.

He was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte earlier in the day, and made the start at designated hitter, batting eighth in the order.

Davidson was a first-round pick of the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2009 and played 31 games with the team in 2013.

He is hitting .268 with 10 home runs and 46 RBIs in 75 games with Charlotte this season.
