Athletics' Melvin: Ike Davis likely to platoon with Billy Butler

Davis took 92 percent of his at-bats against right-handed pitching last season.

"It is what it is -- just have to play the game when they tell you to play the game," Davis said of the planned platoon. "I had some success platooning last year, so I hope to build on it and continue getting better.''

Ike Davis still bothered by 2012 report accusing him of drinking issue


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) When the Mets traded Ike Davis to the Pirates last April, it put an end to a disappointing tenure in New York. Davis struggled to meet the expectations of being a former first-round pick, which is something he could live with.

Apparently, however, Davis couldn't live with a 2012 report citing the Mets were concerned about his nightlife habits. Davis had to encounter the topic when he met with Pirates manager Clint Hurdle after he was traded last year.

“Clint asked me about it when I first got over there,” Davis said, per the New York Daily News. “I was like, ‘I don’t know what to tell you, but a guy made up an article.’

“He was like, ‘I heard you’ve had issues.” And I was like, ‘Issues with what? I’ve never gotten in trouble. I’ve never gotten in a fight. I’ve never done anything to anyone. Yeah, I’ve gone out and had beers and stuff, but who hasn’t done that?’ I don’t know why I got singled out.”

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington told Davis at the end of last season he would squash any rumors regarding the issue, calling the report "ridiculous" after Davis proved to be a model teammate in 2014.

Even Athletics manager Bob Melviin said Davis’ reputation in the game is now sound and is glad to have him on the roster after Oakland picked him up in November.

Still, Davis remains bothered the accusations are connected to his tenure with the Mets.

“That’s really the only thing that I still have a dirty taste in my mouth about," he said. "Because everything else, you could see it in numbers. What, am I going to argue? I didn’t play well. But as far as calling me out for drinking problems, and being a bad influence -- that was a joke. It’s ridiculous. But you can use it as a learning experience: You can’t trust people.”


A's still planning to use Davis at 1B, Butler at DH vs. RHPs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday he still views Billy Butler as the primary DH against right-handed pitchers, per the San Francisco Chronicle. He added Butler will also play some first base against left-handed pitchers, but Ike Davis will see most of the playing time at first base vs. right-handers.

A's 1B Ike Davis 'hoping' he is 'over and done with' valley fever


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Athletics first baseman Ike Davis said a physical exam prior to the 2014 season indicated he still had traces of valley fever, which hindered him during the 2013 season when he hit just .205 with nine homers and 33 RBI. Valley fever is a fungal disease that produces extreme fatigue, fever and muscle and joint pain.

"Valley fever is a nightmare," Davis said, per the San Jose Mercury News. "You have no energy, no nothing. It was definitely a weird one. It's supposed to go away on its own, but when I had an X-ray last year, it showed I still had it. I'm hoping that's over and done with."

Davis said he is feeling stronger than he has in several years, which could be a good sign. As of now, though, the plan is for Davis to start against right-handed pitchers, but if he gets off to a fast start, then more playing time could be in his future.

"I've got the opportunity to play here, and I've been excited since I got the word I was coming to Oakland," Davis said. "I want to be a tough out and a run producer, and when I'm in the lineup I can be that.

"The last two years haven't been great, but I'm feeling good now, and that's important. It's a good lineup to hit in too, with a lot of high on-base percentage guys, and that makes it easier."

Huntington: Could be 'a challenge' for Pirates to keep Ike Davis


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) With the Pirates committing to Pedro Alvarez as an everyday first baseman, it seems the team might have to part ways with first baseman Ike Davis, according to the New York Post. It still might happen even though Davis is trying to learn how to play in the outfield to improve his versatility, as CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported Wednesday.

"It is probably a challenge," general manager Neal Huntington said of keeping Davis. "Ike works hard and is a great guy. He didn’t give the production we were hopeful for. It doesn’t mean the door is closed. But as it sits now, Pedro will be at first."
