Ike Davis went 0-for-4 in the Mets’ loss to the Cubs on Saturday and is batting just .156/.238/.359 in 39 total games this season. But the Mets’ decision-makers still aren’t ready to do anything drastic.
Despite some reports to the contrary, Davis was assured Saturday by Mets general manager Sandy Alderson that a demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas is not imminent. This according to Marc Carig, who serve as the Mets beat writer for Newsday.
Davis estimated to reporters that he has about a month to turn it around before that move is made.
The 26-year-old first baseman got off to a slow start in 2012 and went on to bat .255/.346/.542 with 20 home runs and 41 RBI over 75 games in the second half. The Mets will be hoping for more of the same here in 2013.
