The Mets have discussed trading first baseman Ike Davis this winter to the Orioles, Pirates, Brewers and Rays. But there’s been no match yet and Adam Rubin of ESPN New York writes Sunday that “Mets insiders” now believe Davis will be reporting to Port St. Lucie, Florida next month for spring training.
Davis, who’s projected to make over $3.5 million this season in his first taste of salary arbitration, batted .205/.326/.334 with nine home runs, 33 RBI and 101 strikeouts in 377 plate appearances for New York in 2013. He had 32 home runs and 90 RBI in 2012.
The Mets can revisit the Davis market when they get to camp and other teams are having to patch holes from inevitable springtime injuries. Lucas Duda would be the primary fill-in for the Mets at first base.
