Mike Puma of the New York Post said on Twitter Ike Davis is unlikely to be demoted before the end of the weekend.
Puma says Davis is on, “double, secret probation,” but the Mets will use the weekend to get a, “better understanding” in Davis’ situation.

The Mets really need to make a decision – one way or another – about what they’re going to do with Ike, so they can end constant questions from the media in front of his locker and to to let him figure out what he needs to do to get right.
I’ve been told the team is trying to remain loyal to Ike and his ability to break out of these doldrums, because he showed he is capable of doing so a year ago in a big way. They also feel the best help he can get is from the staff in the big leagues. But, as Sandy Alderson said on SNY last night, what happened last year doesn’t necessarily apply this year and the organization has to remain loyal to the name on the front of the jersey first – even if that means sending Ike down. I really hope the light goes on for Ike, even after a series like he had against the Reds. But, there’s no questioning Ike’s time could be running out.
