Terry discusses Ike's short-term future; could go to minors

According to the team’s beat reporters on Twitter, Terry Collins suggested Ike Davis could go to the minor leagues if he doesn’t begin to improve in the short-term.

“There is nothing etched in stone,” Collins said. “We will never, never say something is not going to happen. What we’re trying to do is make sure is we wring the rag dry.”

Davis is hitting just .160 with a .220 on-base percentage with five home runs and 14 RBI, and he’s 6-for-50 in the month of May.

“I don’t know what to tell you,” Davis said, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. “I’m going to play here until something happens. … I’m not sent down yet, so I don’t know what to tell you.”

Michael Baron: I love Ike – he’s a great kid, he works hard and he has a ton of power. But something has to change with him at this point. Slumps are one thing, but seven weeks of ineffectiveness is no longer a slump. I’d hate to see him go to the minor leagues, but he’s just not doing anything at all offensively, and it could be the best thing for him right now. He’s completely out of whack and I have to wonder how this is impacting him mentally.
