Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports that Ike Davis is expected to sign a minor league deal soon.
The Yankees are among the teams in the mix. Davis was non-tendered by the Athletics in December after batting just .229/.301/.350 with three home runs and 21 RBI over 239 plate appearances last season. He's going to have to earn his way on a major league roster in the spring. Feb 10 - 1:31 PM

Athletics non-tendered 1B Ike Davis.

It was pretty much a given once the Athletics acquired Yonder Alonso from the Padres on Wednesday. Davis earned $3.8 million in 2015 while batting just .229/.301/.350 with three home runs and 21 RBI over 239 plate appearances. The Athletics understandably didn't think that level of production was worth keeping him around for a raise.

Athletics activated 1B Ike Davis from the 60-day disabled list.

He's now back on the 40-man roster. Davis is expected to be ready for spring training following hip surgery but is a non-tender candidate this winter.

Athletics head trainer Nick Paparesta said Friday that Ike Davis (hip) should be fully recovered and ready for spring training.

Davis underwent successful surgery earlier in the month to repair his ailing left hip. He hit just .229/.301/.350 with three homers and 20 RBI in 214 at-bats in his first season with the Athletics.

Athletics transferred 1B Ike Davis from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Oakland needed to clear room on its 40-man roster for Sean Doolittle. The A's announced Wednesday that Davis would undergo season-ending hip surgery. The 28-year-old struggled in his first year with Oakland, hitting just .229 with three homers over 74 appearances. Mark Canha has been filling in at first base.

Ike Davis will undergo season-ending surgery on his left hip.

Obviously the results of his MRI were not favorable and the slugger will be forced to go under the knife to repair his ailing hip. He should be fully recovered and ready to go for the beginning of the 2016 season.

Athletics placed 1B Ike Davis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 18, with a strained left hip.

The hip has been bothering Davis for a while, as it appears he hurt it by overcompensating for his quad ailment. He underwent an MRI Tuesday and is still awaiting the results. Mark Canha has been drawing most of the starts at first base over Davis of late, anyway.

Pinch-hitter Ike Davis hit a walkoff infield single in the bottom of the 10th inning to beat the Blue Jays 4-3 on Wednesday.

With two outs and a runner on third, Jose Reyes fielded Davis' grounder and fired to first. The ball and the runner arrived at the bag at about the same time, sending the umpiring crew into a lengthy review process. The tape confirmed Davis beat the throw (by perhaps a faction of a millisecond), scoring Josh Reddick. Oakland improves to 44-52. If not for a horrid record in one-run games, they'd be right in the thick of the playoff race. Consider this: Oakland's run differential (+48) is 19 better than the 52-41 Yankees (+29).

Ike Davis was 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Friday against the Indians.

The struggles continue for Davis, who has one hit in 16 at-bats this month. He's hitting just .174 (8-for-46) since returning from the disabled list last month.
Fri, Jul 10, 2015 11:45:00 PM

Athletics activated 1B Ike Davis from the 15-day disabled list.

Davis missed a little over a month of action with a strained left quad. He was batting .282/.348/.427 with two homers over 33 games before going down and will go back to playing regularly at first base versus righties.
Fri, Jun 19, 2015 05:29:00 PM

Ike Davis (quad) will join the Athletics on Wednesday to be evaluated.

Davis, out for a month with a strained left quad, is 3-for-11 (.273) with a double and two RBI over three rehab games with Triple-A Nashville and is scheduled to DH on Tuesday. Assuming everything checks out, he could be activated Wednesday.
Tue, Jun 16, 2015 02:14:00 PM

Ike Davis (quad) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

Davis began a rehab assignment on Friday and hasn't had any issues with his quad. He's missed the last month of action but is poised to regain his first base job in a few days.
Sun, Jun 14, 2015 02:14:00 PM

Ike Davis (quad) has gone 2-for-7 at the plate in his first two rehab games with Triple-A Nashville.

Davis was cleared for a rehab assignment after running the bases with no issues. He's been on the shelf nearly a month with a strained left quad but should return to the Athletics' lineup shortly.
Sun, Jun 14, 2015 09:16:00 AM

Ike Davis (quad) will run the bases in the next couple days.

If that goes well, he'll likely be cleared to begin a rehab assignment this weekend. That should put Davis on track to rejoin the A's at some point next week. He's been on the shelf nearly a month with a strained left quad.
Tue, Jun 9, 2015 07:10:00 PM

Ike Davis (quad) could begin a rehab assignment in about a week.

Davis resumed baseball activities late last week and things have come along swimmingly. It sounds like he could be activated in early June.
