Ike Davis enters break struggling on offense


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Pirates first baseman Ike Davis wrapped up a down first half by going just 4 for 27 with a double, two walks and six RBI in nine July games.

Davis hasn't had any trouble drawing walks, collecting 22 free passes since June 1, but that's been close to his only way to get on base, as he has hit just .173/.322/.245 with one home run and 11 RBI in 98 at-bats since the beginning of June. After spending much of June as the team's cleanup hitter, Davis has slotted in sixth or seventh in most of his July starts. With the Pirates just 3.5 games back in a competitive NL Central race that has three teams ahead of Pittsburgh in the standings, the team may want to consider hitting the trade market again for an upgrade at the position.


Pedro Alvarez, Ike Davis both out Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) 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.


Pirates not ready to change infield alignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) 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."


Ike Davis picks up two hits Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Pirates first baseman Ike Davis picked up two hits Friday against the Marlins.

Davis helped break the game open for Pittsburgh in the fifth inning. With two men on, Davis clubbed a two-run double. He singled earlier in the game. Davis finished 2 for 3, with one run scored and two RBI.

Davis is hitting .247/.358/.382 in 170 at-bats.


Ike Davis smacks fifth home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) 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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) 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 picks up three singles in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Pirates first baseman Ike Davis snapped out of a 1-for-10 slide Wednesday, in a 9-8 win over the Orioles.

Davis went 3 for 4 for his first multi-hit game in a week. All three hits were singles, though he drove in runs with two of them as the Pirates worked their way back from an early deficit.

Davis is now hitting .269 on the season, but has a .286 average since being trade to Pittsburgh.  


Ike Davis: 'It's nice to play for someone that actually wants you'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Pirates first baseman Ike Davis was back in New York this weekend to face the Yankees for the first time since he was traded by the Mets in mid-April. Davis had no problems opening up about how he felt about the trade.

"It’s nice to play for someone that actually wants you, or thinks you can help the team. Obviously the Mets thought I could help (for) a couple years, because I was there for almost five. I had one bad season and they had to make a change, and traded me away," Davis saidm per the New York Post. "It’s nice to be with a team that likes you. I don’t think the Mets hated me… until you know.

"It takes away the pressure of the nonsense off the field, having to answer questions about going 0-for-4. When you have to talk about your bad streaks every day you think about it more than you want to. Here, I had a stretch where I went 1-for-20 and no one said a word. In New York, the count-off in the paper would be like 1-for-19 or 0-for-20."


Ike Davis grabbing some pine Thursday against Brewers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Pirates first baseman Ike Davis will not get a chance to maintain his hot streak Thursday in Milwaukee unless he pinch-hits. He will sit against right-hander Yovani Gallardo.

Davis has five multi-hit performances in his last eight games, during which time he is batting .480 to raise his average from .188 to .266. He has experienced a power outage, however, with no home runs since April 21.


Ike Davis posting moderate numbers since trade


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) Pirates first baseman Ike Davis had a season-high three hits -- all singles -- during a 4-3 win Wednesday against the Giants. It was his second straight multi-hit game and fifth since joining the Pirates in mid-April.

Davis is batting .250 (13 for 52) with a .350 on-base percentage, .365 slugging percentage, .715 OPS, one home run, three doubles, five RBI, eight walks, nine runs and 12 strikeouts in 17 games (13 starts) since being acquired from the Mets.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Davis has cooled off considerably after a hot start with his new team. He is hitless in his last 14 at-bats covering six games.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets, Pirates agree to Ike Davis trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) 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 plays the hero Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Mets first baseman Ike Davis came through for the team Saturday.

Davis recently lost the full-time job at first, but still found a way to come through. He entered the game with the club down by one in the ninth inning. With the bases loaded, all Davis needed to do was hit a fly ball in order for the Mets to tie it up. 

On the second pitch from closer J.J. Hoover, Davis pulled a 73 mph curveball and deposited it into the right field stands for a walkoff grand slam. It was just his fourth at-bat of the season.


Report: Mets eager to trade Ike Davis


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) The Mets are eager to trade first baseman Ike Davis, according to the New York Daily News.

The move should come as no surprise, as Davis was on the trade block during the offseason. By going with Lucas Duda at first, at least in the short term, the club has made it clear that Davis doesn't necessarily fit into its plans. At this point, the team is looking for a "decent return." Davis trade value has decreased considerably, both based on his performance last season, and leaks from the team that he partied too much in 2012. 

Davis has long been a candidate to be dealt, but the Mets have been reluctant to pull the trigger.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Davis and Lucas Duda have battled all spring, and manager Terry Collins never named a starter at the position. Both players are expected to see time at the position, but it appears Davis has the slight edge for now.


Ike Davis, Lucas Duda both make opening day roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday first basemen Ike Davis and Lucas Duda will be on the opening day roster. However, Alderson gave no indication as to how manager Terry Collins will use both players in the lineup.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Ike Davis or Lucas Duda to return to spring action Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
