Mets & Brewers Have Discussed Ike Davis


According to Andy Martino in today’s Daily News, the Mets and Brewers have discussed a potential deal that would send first baseman Ike Davis to Milwaukee.  However, Martino says a deal between the two clubs with Davis involved is “unlikely.” -

The Mets and Brewers have discussed a possible Ike Davis trade, but the talks did not gain any traction, and a deal is unlikely at this time, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Martino says that the Brewers are likely to explore the free agent market before getting serious about any potential trades, and that the team is unlikely to trade outfielder Norichika Aoki.

Thoughts:

It’s been reported since the end of the season that the Mets are far more likely to deal Ike Davis than Lucas Duda, with some saying that Davis needs a change of scenery.

If the Mets do indeed trade Davis this offseason, they’ll be selling extremely low.  He had a horrendous first half of the season, was demoted to Triple-A, and hurt himself after returning.

Davis was playing much better after being recalled from Triple-A, but he still wasn’t showing much power.

Still, it would be pointless to go into the 2014 campaign with both Davis and Duda on the roster.  Something has to give.

    If the team has to get rid of both, both were playing pretty bad at the end of the year & the “change of scenery” argument might actually partially convince as to Ike Davis. Not sure how it applies to Duda. Either way, both are at a low point.

  • Ken Meoni

    A package with someone else, like Murphy would be the way to go. Still think the Blue Jays are a fit. Lets say for Encarnacion. The Jays need a 2B and they can then use Davis as a DH/1B. If you expand the trade like AA likes to do, then Montero and Lind get added in.
