Mets Rumors: Ike Davis Staying Put?
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, the Mets are expected to take 1B Ike Davis to spring training camp with them. Rubin adds that Ike Davis prefers not to be with the club and I guess that would have to be a preference of the Mets too.
The Mets will keep their options open in the next coming weeks before pitchers and catchers report on February 15. They will listen to any team that will inquire about him including the Pirates, Brewers, and Orioles.
The Orioles have been talking to the Mets about Lucas Duda, Ike Davis, and Daniel Murphy , but nothing has gained any traction. The Mets have been asking for a highly touted prospect pitcher and according to SNY's Hot Stove Orioles LHP Zach Britton might be a guy the Mets could have interest in. In early reports, the Mets have asked for LHP Eduardo Rodriguez, but were turned down.
