(4/19/14) The Pirates have wasted no time getting newly acquired first baseman Ike Davis into their lineup. He is set to bat sixth Saturday night against the visiting Brewers.
Davis has arrived in a huge slump in which he has just one hit in his last 16 at-bats.
|Mets, Pirates agree to Ike Davis trade |

(4/18/14) The Mets and Pirates have agreed to a trade that will send first baseman Ike Davis to Pittsburgh, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The Mets received minor-league reliever Zack Thornton and a player to be named later in exchange for Davis.
The Mets waited until right before first pitch Friday to get the deal agreed to, and it appears likely that Davis' roster spot will be filled by the activation of Chris Young from the disabled list.
|Ike Davis back in starting lineup against Braves |

(4/10/14) The forgotten man with the Mets has been given a rare start. First baseman Ike Davis, who was beaten out for the starting job by Lucas Duda, has been placed in the lineup for the Thursday night game in Atlanta.
Davis could eventually have a chance to wrest the job back considering Duda is batting just .182. Davis has four hits in 10 at-bats this year, including a pinch-hit grand slam on Saturday.
|Ike Davis expected to play Sunday |

(4/6/14) Mets first baseman Ike Davis is expected to play Sunday, according to ESPN.
Manager Terry Collins remains adamant that Lucas Duda is still the full-time starter at first, and said he always planned to start Davis Sunday. "When I talked to him the other day, I said, 'Listen, you’re going to play Sunday,'" Collins said. "'So even though it may not be an everyday thing, you’re going to get playing time.'"
Davis hit a walkoff grand slam Saturday against the Reds.
|Ike Davis appears to be on his last leg with the Mets. After a disappointing 2013 campaign, the Mets have been heavily shopping Davis, but they haven't found a deal to their liking yet. If Davis makes it to opening day with New York, then he might not have much room for error after two disappointing seasons. Though he totaled 32 home runs and 90 RBI in 2012, Davis hit just .227 with a .308 on-base percentage. Believe it or not, things got even worse in 2013. Davis would get off to a horrendous start, batting .161 in his first 55 games, forcing the Mets to send him to the minors in June. When he returned in July, Davis showed some improvement, batting .267 with a .429 on-base percentage in his last 48 games, but the power still wasn't there. Davis said his struggles last season were a result of overhauling his mechanics instead of making minor adjustments following his early season slump. Davis appears confident he's found the root of his problem, but now he has to work on fixing it. He clearly has shown he has power potential, but you really shouldn't use more than a late-round selection in deeper formats on the struggling slugger.
