Ike Davis

  1. The Rays are interested in Juan Uribe as a first baseman

    Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Four

    Add another team to the White Sox and Dodgers in the Juan Uribe derby: Sources: #Rays interested in free agent Juan Uribe. Would play mostly at first, some at second and also back up Longoria at third. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) December 13, 2013 This is better than being interested in Mark Reynolds for first…

  2. Brewers, Rays and Pirates in the mix to acquire Ike Davis

    The Mariners took two first baseman off the board earlier today by agreeing to a deal with Corey Hart and acquiring Logan Morrison from the Marlins. Could Mets’ first baseman Ike Davis be the next domino to fall? While nothing appears to be imminent, Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio reports that the Brewers, Rays,…

    It’s been suspected all offseason that the Mets would shop second baseman Daniel Murphy and Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports hears that they are pushing “very hard” to move him at this week’s Winter Meetings. Nothing appears imminent, but Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Orioles are among the teams who…

  4. Delmon Young working out at first base to pad resume

    You’re never too old to start learning how to play first base. Delmon Young, shockingly only 28 years old, has never played a single inning at first base in his entire professional baseball career, but he has been working out at the position lately in order to make himself more attractive as a free agent,…

  5. Red Sox, Brewers among teams to indicate interest in Logan Morrison

    Logan Morrison Getty

    The Marlins signed Garrett Jones to a two-year, $7.5 million deal this afternoon, effectively squeezing Logan Morrison out. Instantly, rumors began to fly involving Morrison in a potential trade. Jon Morosi of FOX Sports tweets that the Red Sox and Brewers have checked in, though nothing is imminent. Morrison has had trouble staying on the…

  6. David Wright helped bring Curtis Granderson to the Mets with a text message

    The Mets made their big off-season move earlier today, signing free agent outfielder Curtis Granderson to a four-year, $60 million deal. GM Sandy Alderson had promised to make some news, especially compared to the prior off-season when the Mets were among the least active teams. Per Newsday’s Marc Carig on Twitter, Alderson had some assistance…

  7. Ike Davis doesn’t want to be traded

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis heard plenty of boos at Citi Field amid his struggles this past season, but he told Anthony DiComo of MLB.com earlier this week that he hopes to get a chance to return in 2014. “I just want a chance to play,” Davis said earlier this week in a telephone interview.…

    Matt Cerrone of Metsblog is reporting that the Mets have had internal discussions about pursuing Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, per people connected to the team. Recently, Brewers GM Doug Melvin said that the two teams would make a good match as trading partners. The Mets are looking to move first baseman Ike Davis and the…

  9. Mets sign Brandon Allen

    Nov 19, 2013, 1:13 PM EST

    Brandon Allen

    In a move that might add a little more steam to the Ike Davis trade rumors, the Mets signed first baseman Brandon Allen to a minor-league contract. Odds are the Allen deal is mostly just for organizational depth, as the 27-year-old has struggled in various big-league stints. He does, however, have very good numbers in…

  10. Brewers GM Doug Melvin thinks the Mets could make a good trading partner

    Nov 17, 2013, 10:00 PM EST

    Ike Davis

    The Brewers need a first baseman, that much is obvious. Long time outfielder Corey Hart is one option, and one that Brewers GM Doug Melvin has certainly considered. Melvin, however, is looking towards the Big Apple as a creative way to round out his roster, noticing that the Mets will be open to moving Ike…

  11. Alderson: 2014 will be “a new day” for the Mets

    Nov 16, 2013, 8:45 PM EST

    Sandy Alderson

    Mets GM Sandy Alderson recently said he won’t target players expected to take home a nine-figure contract, like Jacoby Ellsbury or Shin-Soo Choo, but he did state that the 2014 season will be “a new day” for the franchise. Newsday’s Marc Carig writes that Alderson spent 45 minutes on the radio, between WFAN and ESPN…

  12. Report: Logan Morrison drawing “significant” trade interest

    Nov 14, 2013, 11:02 PM EST

    Logan Morrison AP

    The Marlins continue to insist that slugger Giancarlo Stanton is unavailable via trade, but it appears that Logan Morrison could be had. While no deal is considered imminent, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi are reporting that Morrison is drawing “significant” trade interest. Aside from Stanton, Morrison was the Marlins’ most-asked about player…

  13. A lot of teams are interested in Ike Davis

    Nov 13, 2013, 11:03 AM EST

    New York Mets Photo Day

    Jon Heyman reports that the Astros, Orioles, Rays, Brewers, and Rockies have all checked in with the Mets about the asking price for Ike Davis. The Mets are considering dealing Davis and going with Lucas Duda. This despite the fact that, recent troubles notwithstanding, Davis has shown serious promise in the past. Part of their…

  14. The Mets are interested in Corey Hart

    Nov 6, 2013, 4:57 PM EST

    Corey Hart

    Mike Puma of the New York post reports that free agent Corey Hart is drawing interest from the Mets. As are a dozen other teams, apparently undeterred by Hart’s multiple knee surgeries. The Mets seem like an odd pursuer. They have a lot of first base types with Ike Davis and Lucas Duda. Of course one…

  15. Ike Davis will not be non-tendered by the Mets

    Sep 9, 2013, 11:32 AM EST

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis is an interesting problem. He started the year in the deepest of swoons and it got so bad that the Mets sent him back to Triple-A to figure stuff out.  There he did, and and after returning from Triple-A in early July he hit .267 with an .872 OPS in 48 games, posting…

  16. Ike Davis unlikely to play again this season

    Sep 4, 2013, 10:47 AM EST

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis left Saturday’s game with a strained oblique muscle and manager Terry Collins said this morning that the Mets expect the first baseman to miss the remainder of the season. That’s a very tough break for Davis, who was turning things in around in a huge way following an absolutely brutal start to the…

  17. Terry Collins almost certain to be back in 2014

    Sep 2, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Terry Collins

    Terry Collins is technically a lame duck as the Mets’ skipper. His contract runs out at the end of the month and, given his 213-246 record at the helm, it’s not as if there is a rich history of success in New York compelling the Mets to extend him.  Nevertheless, Buster Olney reports that extend…

  18. Ike Davis exits with a strained right oblique

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:35 PM EST

    Ike Davis

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis may have played his last game in 2013. In the third inning, with the Mets leading 1-0, Davis skied a sacrifice fly to left field. He grabbed at his side, then left the field gingerly with trainer Ray Ramirez, writes ESPN’s Adam Rubin. Rubin later verified that the injury is…

  19. Mets recall Lucas Duda from Triple-A

    Lucas Duda Getty

    The Mets announced this morning that they have recalled Lucas Duda from Triple-A Las Vegas. In turn, Mike Baxter has been optioned back down to the minors. Duda batted .235/.353/.438 with 11 home runs and 23 RBI through 68 games this season prior to landing on the disabled list with an oblique strain in late…

  20. Ike Davis has been much better since his demotion

    Aug 11, 2013, 7:45 PM EST

    Ike Davis

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis started off the 2013 season abysmally, carrying an OPS at exactly .500 through June 9. In an attempt to turn things around, the Mets demoted Davis to Triple-A Las Vegas. Under manager Wally Backman, Davis thrived, posting a 1.091 OPS in three weeks with the 51′s. Davis came back on…

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 2: In what is the most meaningful baseball played in Pittsburgh in over 20 years, Francisco Liriano was dominant and Pedro Alvarez hit his NL-leading 27th homer and the Pirates pull to within a half game of first place. Rays 2, Red Sox 1: Gotta love that a blown call impacted a…

  22. The Mets totally shellack the Nats in the first game of today’s double header

    Jul 26, 2013, 5:02 PM EST

    New York Mets v Washington Nationals - Game One

    I don’t guess one game of a doubleheader is usually that notable, but since it was the only day game today the Mets-Nats affair got my attention. And even if it hadn’t beforehand, man, it would have after it got going. The Mets demolished the Nationals 11-0. Jenrry Mejia got the start for New York…

  23. Ike Davis plans to bunt more often

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:39 AM EST

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis attempted to bunt for a base hit in the bottom of the second inning with one out and the bases empty and his team down 1-0. He was facing an infield shift, so his thought was to drop a bunt down the third base line for an easy infield single,…

  24. There is “zero chance” Wally Backman will be the Mets next manager

    Jun 13, 2013, 9:13 AM EST

    Wally Backman, Tim Teufel

    As we noted previously, the demotion of Ike Davis has put his new manager in Las Vegas — Wally Backman — in the spotlight. This is because there is a loud contingent of Mets fans and New York reporters who like Backman, want him to be the next Mets manager and are viewing this as…

  25. Wally Backman hasn’t fixed Ike Davis yet

    Jun 12, 2013, 10:01 AM EST

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis made his debut for Las Vegas last night. He went 0 for 3 with two walks and two strikeouts. So I guess Wally Backman hasn’t fixed him yet, putting uncertainty into the Mets managerial search! Well, OK, it was only one game. And according to this New York Post story, Backman did actually…
