The Athletics announced they acquired first baseman Ike Davis from the Pirates Sunday.
The Pirates had previously designated Davis for assignment. To acquire Davis, the A’s exchanged international slot money with the Pirates. The A’s traded their international slot 27 and received the Pirates’ 86th international slot. The A’s then designated outfielder Andrew Brown for assignment.
In 2014, Davis hit .233 with 11 home runs and 19 doubles. His best season came in 2012 while playing for the Mets when he hit 30 home runs and had 90 RBI.
