|Pedro Alvarez, Ike Davis both out Friday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/4/14) Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez and first baseman Ike Davis are catching a break for the Friday game against Philadelphia starter Roberto Hernandez, who has been far stronger against left-handed batters this season.
Alvarez is 0 for 2 lifetime against Hernandez while Davis has yet to face him.

(6/30/14) Despite the continued success of Josh Harrison, Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday the team is not considering moving Pedro Alvarez to first base to clear up regular at-bats for Harrison at third base. Huntington added he likes the duo of Ike Davis and Gaby Sanchez at first base.
"Ike, the power hasn't been maybe what it was in the past, but he gives us quality, professional at-bats and has played solid defense for us there," Huntington said. "If we can get Pedro back on track to 30-something home runs, being a productive major league hitter and playing adequate defense at third, that's a pretty good tandem to have on the corners."
Huntington said Harrison will continue to fill a utility role for Pittsburgh.
"To play a 162-game season this year, in this environment, it's about depth," Huntington said.
"We're working through all different scenarios, but right now what we feel very comfortable with is Josh bouncing around giving everybody rest."

(6/9/14) Pirates first baseman Ike Davis went 1 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 6-2 win over the Cubs Monday.
Davis entered the game 0 for 19 in June but finally broke through with his first hit of the month in the eighth inning. He has hit .245/.363/.384 with five home runs and 20 RBI in 159 at-bats.
|Ike Davis no more than mediocre since arriving in Pittsburgh |

(5/29/14) A mini-slump has followed a mini-tear for Pirates first baseman Ike Davis. He is hitless in his last nine at-bats.
Davis has been productive at times since the trade that brought him over from the Mets, never moreso than in a recent 10-for-23 stretch over six games during which he had a home runs, four RBI and three runs scored.
But Davis has continued to be prone to peaks and valleys at the plate. His .392 slugging percentage and 0-for-15 mark against left-handed pitching indicates that the Pirates will still be looking for a more productive first baseman in the future.
|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.
