Davis, who was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter, will receive a slight increase in salary from the $3.125 million he made last year. Of course, that’s mostly a function of the process, as his .205/.326/.334 batting line from 2013 didn’t exactly scream raise.
The Mets have discussed trade scenarios involving Davis this winter, most notably with the Brewers and Orioles, but they haven’t found a taker yet. That could change in the coming weeks, but the 26-year-old will compete with Lucas Duda for the first base job during spring training assuming he sticks around. 2014 is a big year for Davis, as he figures to be a non-tender candidate next offseason if he doesn’t bounce back.
