The Mets and Ike Davis have avoided arbitration with a one-year deal, worth $3.5 million (Sherman).
Davis hit .205 with a .326 OBP in 103 games in 2013. He spent a month in the minor leagues after starting the season with a .242 OBP and just five home runs.
After returning from Triple-A, Ike hit .267 with a .429 OBP and four home runs in 48 games.
Davis earned $3.125 million in 2013 and was projected to make $3.5 million this upcoming season (MLBTR).
Davis has been at the center of rumors all offseason, as the Mets may look to deal him and open up first base for Lucas Duda, Josh Satin and/or Wilmer Flores. But Sandy Alderson recently said the Mets are not actively engaged in trade discussions involving Davis (DiComo, Jan. 9).
