Mets Rumors: Mets get rejected from Orioles for Ike Davis


Mets Rumors:


Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets have "unsuccessfully tried" to trade Ike Davis to the Orioles for pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez.

Rodriguez is a 20-year-old left-hander that posted a 3.41 ERA with 125 strikeouts over 145 innings between High- and Double-A last season. He was recently ranked by Baseball Prospectus as the club's No. 4 prospect.

Puma notes that the Mets are "still talking" to the Orioles, Brewers and Pirates about Davis.

The Mets have made other attempts to acquire a pitching prospect from the Brewers and Pirates but were also turned down. The Mets asked the Brewers for Tyler Thornburg and have also have asked the Pirates for Nick Kingham.

It comes apparent that teams are not valuing Davis as high as the Mets thought he would be valued, especially when Davis is expected to make around $3.5 Million in 2014.

There is plenty of time before now and spring training and the worst thing that can happen at this point is to let Ike Davis prove his worth in the spring and take it from there..

Mets Rumors: Pirates have interest in First basemen Ike Davis


Mets Rumors:


The New York Mets are still looking for a possible suitor for Ike Davis. Many Mets Fans like myself have been waiting to exhale to see where Ike Davis lands.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have talked to the Mets according to Travis Sawchik of Triblive Sports. The Mets are holding out for a prospect pitcher, in this case they are looking at RHP Nick Kingham who is their ninth best prospect overall. The Pirates also have interest in Texas 1B/DH Mitch Moreland, who according to reports is not being moved at this point. The Pirates want to platoon Davis with veteran 1B Gaby Sanchez

The Milwaukee Brewers are also still in the hunt for a first basemen as well. During the Winter Meetings, it came apparent that it was only a amount of time when Davis was going to become a Brewer. Now that seems uncertain. The Mets wanted pitching prospect RHP Tyler Thornburg from the Brew Crew , but were turned down. The Brewers have plans to use him in their 2014 rotation and make him their fifth starter..

Sandy Alderson suggested he would be looking for an equivalent return to what others have received for trading first basemen. The Marlins got 23-year-old Carter Capps from the Mariners for Logan Morrison last week.

So right now the ball is in the court of the Brewers and Pirates and who will pay for him with a pitching prospect.
