The Mets and Ike Davis have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract that is believed to be worth $3.125 million, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

Davis was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter as a Super Two player. He requested $3.7 million and was offered $2.825 million from the Mets when arbitration figures were exchanged yesterday, so the two sides settled at a little under the midpoint.

Davis got off to a miserable start last season after missing most of 2011 due to an ankle injury, but he finally got on track in June and finished with a career-high 32 homers and 90 RBI. The 25-year-old first baseman owns a .252/.336/.461 batting line and a .797 OPS over his first 339 games in the majors and remains under team control through 2016.

    Really? Davis gets his own post too but Jackson, Avila, & Fister still don’t? Alright, Short, you’re on my list now too. >:(
