Ike Davis struck out the side for the Dodgers' Arizona League team Sunday in his first inning as a full-time pitcher.
Davis, 30, decided to make the switch to the mound earlier this season after getting off to a rough start as a hitter at Triple-A Oklahoma City. Pitching isn't totally new to him, though, as Davis was a reliever in college at Arizona State. Eric Longenhagen of reports that Davis was sitting in the 88-92 mph range with his fastball Sunday in the rookie-level AZL. He's obviously not a great bet to make it to the majors as a pitcher, but it will be an interesting story to track. Mon, Aug 7, 2017 05:36:00 PM

Dodgers signed 1B Ike Davis to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Davis appeared in eight games for the Yankees last season but spent most of the year at the Triple-A level, batting .248/.337/.419 with nine dingers over 65 contests. His career has gone steadily in the wrong direction since his 32-homer season for the Mets back in 2012.

Yankees released 1B Ike Davis.

The Rangers released Davis in mid-June, at which point the Yankees opted to take a flier on the 29-year-old first baseman. He collected three hits in 14 at-bats during a limited run with the big league club before they designated him for assignment just a few weeks after signing him. He passed through waivers and they subsequently sent him outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He will look for a new home now that he has hit the midseason free agent market

Yankees sent 1B Ike Davis outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Davis passed through waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend. He has expressed a willingness to stick around as depth in the minors, but it's unclear if he's made an official decision.

Yankees designated 1B Ike Davis for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Mark Teixeira's return from the disabled list. Davis went 3-for-14 (.214) with an RBI during his brief stint with the Yankees. He told reporters that he'll consider staying with the organization if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Yankees signed 1B Ike Davis to a one-year contract.

Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. The Yankees have been ravaged by injuries at first base and have recently had to turn to Rob Refsnyder there out of complete necessity. The 29-year-old slugger was hitting .268/.350/.437 with four homers at Triple-A Round Rock before opting out of his minor league deal with the Rangers.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Ike Davis has agreed to terms on a major league contract with the Yankees.

Previous reports said a deal was close, and Heyman says Davis will receive a big league deal and report soon. The 29-year-old has batted .268/.350/.437 with four homers at the Triple-A level this season and had hits in his last seven at-bats before opting out of his minor league contract with the Rangers. He should man first base regularly against righties.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that the Yankees are "on (the) verge) of signing Ike Davis.

Davis opted out of his minor league contract with the Rangers earlier Sunday, and it seemed like only a matter of time that he'd wind up with the Yankees given their first base issues. It's unclear whether he'll get a major or minor league deal, but either way he should be with the big club shortly. Davis batted .268/.350/.437 with four homers at Triple-A Round Rock this season and had hits in his last seven at-bats before opting out of his contract.
Sun, Jun 12, 2016 01:57:00 PM

Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports that there "has been contact" between the Yankees and Ike Davis' reps.

Davis opted out of his minor league contract with the Rangers earlier Sunday, and given the injury issues the Yanks have dealt with at first base there is an obvious fit. It wouldn't be a surprise to see an announcement regarding Davis and New York shortly.
Sun, Jun 12, 2016 01:51:00 PM

Rangers released 1B Ike Davis.

Davis has exercised the opt-out clause in his minor league contract so that he can pursue other opportunities. It's unclear whether he has a deal in place somewhere at this point, but the Yankees would certainly appear to be an obvious fit. Davis went 7-for-7 in his last two games for Triple-A Round Rock and overall batted .268/.350/.437 with four homers across 163 plate appearances there.

Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine said Wednesday that Ike Davis' right knee sprain makes it unlikely he'll be on the Opening Day roster.

Davis was probably a long shot to begin with, but the knee injury hasn't helped his cause. The 29-year-old non-roster invitee hasn't appeared in Cactus League action since March 8.

Ike Davis (knee) hopes to be cleared to return to Cactus League action in a week.

Davis has already missed over a week of action with a mildly sprained right knee. The veteran first baseman probably entered camp as a long shot to make the team and the injury has surely sealed his fate.
Sun, Mar 20, 2016 11:33:00 AM

Ike Davis was scratched from Thursday's lineup with a mild right knee sprain.

He had been slated to serve as the designated hitter. Davis is considered day-to-day, but this obviously won't help his chances of landing an Opening Day roster spot after he signed a minor league deal over the winter.

Rangers signed 1B Ike Davis to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 28-year-old slugger clubbed 32 home runs and drove home 90 runs for the Mets in 2012 but has slashed just .222/.328/.356 with 23 long balls and 223 strikeouts in 891 at-bats over the past three seasons. There's still intriguing talent here, so it makes for a nice low-risk signing for the Rangers. He'll compete for a spot on the Rangers bench this spring.

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.
