It was just three seasons ago when Ike Davis, a young up and coming first baseman for the New York Mets clubbed 19 home runs while hitting a respectable .264 during his rookie campaign. Little did he or the Mets know that Davis’ rookie season would be by far his best, despite hitting 32 home runs in 2012 as he only hit for a .227 average in the process.
Things came to a head during the 2013 season when Davis struggled so badly, the team was forced to send him down to the minor leagues where he looked mildly improved, but the struggles continued once he was recalled to New York.
Hoping to get something of value for the young first baseman, the Mets have reportedly engaged in trade talks with the Milwaukee Brewers though a deal is not expected to get done:
The Mets and Brewers have discussed a possible Ike Davis trade, but the talks did not gain any traction, and a deal is unlikely at this time, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
