Ike Davis and Sandy Alderson met Saturday, and the GM told Davis a demotion is not imminent, both men said.
About his chat with Davis, Alderson said, “The important message was: Let’s stop focusing on the results and just start working on having good at-bats. For me, I thought his at-bats were a little bit better today.”
Alderson, was asked if Davis had a “significant amount of leeway or this is going to come to a head,” told ESPNNewYork.com: “Everything comes to a head at some point.”
Davis went 0-for-4 with an error in Saturday’s 8-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs.
Said Davis about a demotion: “Me and Sandy talked about it today, and right now it’s not in the future. But in any job, if you don’t do it, you know what it is. But right now there’s no process of it. … It’s not like going to be a three-game tryout. Once again, I’ll probably have a month or whatever to figure it out. Then they’ve got to do what they’ve got to do. It’s not a day-to-day thing. As long as I start having good at-bats and start performing better, it won’t happen.”
