It wasn’t that long ago that New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis looked poised to become an eventual middle of the order hitter.
Davis clubbed 32 home runs in 2012 (not exactly the easiest thing to do in what was a spacious Citi Field) and looked to be a fixture in the Mets lineup moving forward. But signficiant struggles eventually lead to Davis being demoted back to AAA and now the team is doing everything they can to trade the former prospect.
Understandably, the Mets are trying to get the most value out of Davis that they can, however, they’ve struggled to find a taker at their price tag. That said – they’re still talking to a handful of teams in need of a first baseman, this according to the New York Post:
Mets have unsuccessfully tried to get pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez from Orioles for Ike Davis. Still talking to Brewers, Orioles, Pirates.
The Mets seem determined to move Davis – it’s just a matter of what type of return they’ll be getting.
