Davis working in OF; preparing for what’s next
Ike Davis is adding another glove to his equipment bag.
The Pirates already have Pedro Alvarez, who likely will shift to first base following this season’s throwing woes, so they don’t really need Davis.
Davis, 27, hit just .233 with 11 home runs with the Mets and Pirates this season. More power is there, as evident in his 32-homer 2012, and he got on base at a .344 clip this year.
Davis probably won’t live up to the hype that comes with being a No. 18 overall Draft pick (2008), but becoming more versatile should help him land where he can compete for a job.
