Ike Davis was demoted to the minors a little less than one month ago after he hit just .161 with five home runs and 66 strikeouts in 207 plate appearances, but he has apparently convinced the Mets that he’s fixed.
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Davis will rejoin the Mets for tomorrow’s series opener against the Brewers. The 26-year-old first baseman batted .293/.424/.667 with seven home runs and a 18/17 K/BB ratio in 92 plate appearances with Triple-A Las Vegas. He homered in each of his last two games.
Davis got into some bad habits at the plate prior to his demotion, but he has been working on his hitting mechanics with Las Vegas manager Wally Backman and hitting coach George Greer. The numbers look pretty impressive, but you obviously have to take production in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League with a grain of salt. We’ll soon see if he made any tangible progress.
