|Ike Davis thinks he's figured out source of struggles |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/21/13) Mets first baseman Ike Davis, who is a candidate to be traded this offseason, told MLB.com he went overboard trying to break out of an early-season slump last year, completely overhauling his mechanics instead of making minor adjustments.
"It's not like an issue of not trying -- I just think I was working on the wrong thing when I was trying to get out of it," Davis said. "I can't really blame anyone else but myself. I played terrible, that's basically the bottom line of what happened. I'm way better than I showed."
A trip to the minor leagues appeared to straighten him out. From his return to the lineup July 5 to his season-ending oblique injury Aug. 31, he hit .267 with four homers and an .872 OPS in 131 at-bats.
The Astros, Orioles, Rays, Rockies and Brewers have been connected to Davis this offseason. The 26-year-old says he would prefer to stay with the Mets.

(11/13/13) CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports that the Astros, Orioles, Rays and Rockies have all contacted the Mets regarding first baseman Ike Davis. The Brewers had already engaged the Mets in talks over Davis but were unable to work out a deal.
Davis still has three years of arbitration eligibility remaining, but the Mets are shopping him as they appear ready to entrust Lucas Duda with the starting first base job next season.

(11/11/13) The New York Daily News reports that the Mets had trade discussions with the Brewers regarding first baseman Ike Davis, but they are not likely to result in a deal. The Brewers are reportedly more interested in signing free agents than making trades at this point.
Previous reports indicated that the Mets are looking to deal either Davis or Lucas Duda this offseason, freeing up the remaining player to see regular playing time at first base.

(10/30/13) The Mets will entertain deals for first basemen Lucas Duda and Ike Davis during the offseason, according to the New York Daily News.
It's unclear which player would draw the most value on the market, but the Mets are leaning toward keeping Duda over Davis. If Duda draws a much better return, that could change. Duda hit .223 with 15 home runs in 318 at-bats.
Davis hit .205 with nine home runs in 317 at-bats.
