ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin reports that first baseman Ike Davis, recently demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas, was not in consideration to take the roster spot of Lucas Duda, placed on the disabled list with a left intercostal strain. Duda had been one of the Mets’ more productive hitters, posting a .791 OPS with 11 home runs in 269 plate appearances. The Mets promoted 27-year-old Zach Lutz.

Davis, meanwhile, had started to catch fire in the Minors. In 50 plate appearances over 11 games, Davis posted a 1.224 OPS with four home runs. Impressively, he drew 11 walks and struck out only nine times. He was demoted after posting a .500 OPS at the big league level.

    I guess Wally is still waiting for some replacement parts to arrive from the Wilpoon commissary so he can complete his repairs on Davis.

    In 50 plate appearances he struck out ONLY 9 times?

      That is slightly below the league strikeout rate, which is impressive in conjunction with taking a lot of walks. Usually high walk rates are associated with high strikeout rates (because patient hitters go deeper in counts).

      Of course, it is a small sample…

    I also thought Vegas was a hitter’s paradise and all stats are greatly skewed towards the hitter.
