Ike Davis is back with the Mets after crushing Triple-A

Less than a month after demoting Ike Davis to Triple-A the Mets have recalled the first baseman from the minors, where he hit .293 with seven homers, seven doubles, and a 1.091 OPS in 21 games.

Davis also had an encouraging 18/17 K/BB ratio at Triple-A, although it’s worth noting that the Pacific Coast League and specifically Las Vegas are extremely hitter-friendly environments. He homered in each of his final two games and fared well against both righties and lefties.

Davis more than earned the demotion by hitting .161 in 55 games for the Mets, including a 66/19 K/BB ratio and .500 OPS, but he recovered from a brutal first half last season to put together a fantastic second half. He’s batting cleanup in his first game back.

    it’s embarrassing how the Mets are handling their roster. Zach Lutz needs a real opportunity, how much can you really see in 1 start and 6 ab’s.

      Josh Satin is the one who needs to get at-bats. He’s a righty so he can still get spot starts at first, and the same goes for second where he’s gotten the majority of his professional starts.

    How is hitting .293 with an almost 1/1 walks to k ratio considered “crushing” in the minors?

      1.091 OPS is crushing it at any level

        Normally thats a high OPS but not when you’re playing in super hitter friendly Vegas. Think Coors of AAA. I think we all saw this coming, huge numbers in AAA only to be brought back up to majors and take away valuable ABs from more deserving players. I know he crushed an infield single earlier tonight. Yup
