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.
