Mets News: 1B Ike Davis and OF Eric Young Jr. Sign One Year Deals and Avoid Arbitration


Mets News:


The Mets and first baseman Ike Davis have agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million deal, thus avoiding arbitration.

The $3.5 million salary will represent a $375,000 raise for Davis, who earned $3.125 million last season in his first year of arbitration eligibility.

Davis, 26, receives the raise after a disappointing 2013 season that included a demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas in June. He performed better when he returned to the Mets July 5, but still hit just 205 with a .661 OPS and nine home runs in 103 games after slugging 32 home runs in 2013.

Outfielder Eric Young Jr. has also agreed to a one-year, $1.85 million deal to avoid arbitration.

In 91 games as the Mets’ primary left fielder, he hit .251 with a .318 on-base percentage and accumulated a league-leading 46 stolen bases between the Mets and Rockies.

Dillon Gee, Lucas Duda, Daniel Murphy and Bobby Parnell are the Mets’ four remaining arbitration-eligible players.
