MLB Trade Rumors: New York Mets likely to move Ike Davis


The New York Mets had multiple opportunities to trade first baseman Ike Davis this season, but reportedly had too high of an asking price.

Fast forward a few months and the Mets are still apparently open to dealing him, which according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News is the most likely ‘endgame’.

Davis was a heralded prospect within the Mets farm system and emerged on the scene with immense power, but wasn’t able to keep on the consistency. That eventually lead to the Mets demoting him to the minor leagues where he seemingly got his swing back, but it hasn’t transitioned against Major League pitching.

Currently the Mets are running with Lucas Duda as their first baseman after manager Terry Collins hinted he wanted to give him an ‘extended look’, so Davis appears to be the odd man out.

For now, he’ll remain on the roster but a new zip code seems likely in the future.
