Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Pirates are likely to trade Ike Davis this offseason.
Although the Pirates haven't officially committed to moving Pedro Alvarez to first base next season, the expectation is that a position switch is coming. That, of course, would leave Davis without a position. Davis is arbitration-eligible again this winter after making $3.5 million in 2014, so he could wind up being non-tendered if the Pirates are unable to find a trade partner. Martino says the Marlins like Davis and could have interest. Oct 16 - 10:01 PM

Date:

Ike Davis was removed from Sunday's game against the Reds due to the flu.

Davis has been battling illness all weekend. He was replaced by Gaby Sanchez, who will continue to hold down first base as long as Davis is sidelined.
Sep 28 - 2:35 PM

Ike Davis has returned to the Pirates starting lineup on Saturday.

Davis has been battling a bout of the flu which caused him to miss Friday's contest, but woke up Saturday feeling much better.
Sep 27 - 11:10 AM

Ike Davis is not in Friday's lineup due to the flu.

He should be back in there on Saturday or Sunday. Gaby Sanchez is handling first base Friday with Davis out.
Sep 26 - 4:09 PM

Ike Davis doubled and hit a three-run home run in four at-bats as the Pirates polished off a 9-1 victory against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

It's the first baseman's first multi-hit game since August 3 and his first homer since August 27. The fifth-inning three-run blast extended the Pirates' lead to 9-1 so it was effectively meaningless. Davis has hit 10 long balls since joining the Pirates while knocking in 44 runs and slashing .235/.345/.378.
Sep 17 - 11:09 PM

Ike Davis launched his second home run in as many days in Wednesday's victory over the Cardinals.

After belting a go-ahead, pinch-hit, three-run homer Tuesday, Davis got the start Wednesday and deposited an Adam Wainwright mistake well over the right-center field wall for a two-run shot in the second inning. The two runs wound up being all Jeff Locke and the Pirates' bullpen needed. Davis figures to see regular time against righties at first base if Pedro Alvarez (foot) is out a while.
Aug 27 - 3:46 PM

Ike Davis hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in the eighth inning to propel the Pirates to a 5-2 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Davis, who hasn't started a game in a week, was called on with two runners on to face Cardinals reliever Seth Maness. The first baseman broke the 2-2 tie with his ninth homer of the season. It was a nice moment for Davis, who has struggled to gain much traction at either of his two major league stops so far, and with Pedro Alvarez possibly out Davis could see more at-bats in the coming weeks.
Aug 26 - 10:20 PM

Ike Davis hit his eighth homer and walked and scored a run Monday versus the Tigers.

It's probably a case of too little, too late for Davis. Manager Clint Hurdle said before the game that Pedro Alvarez is about ready to play first base, and once Alvarez gets into the lineup over there, starts could be few and far between for Davis, even if he has been Alvarez's equal against right-handed pitching this year.
Aug 11 - 11:14 PM

Ike Davis was 2-for-3 with a two-run double and a run scored in a win over the Marlins on Friday night.

Davis was just 2-for-30 this month coming into Friday's action. It was an encouraging night, but the 27-year-old remains an enigma.
Jun 14 - 12:01 AM

Ike Davis went 2-for-4 and hit a long home run off Josh Beckett in Friday's victory.

Davis hasn't made a lot of noise since hitting a grand slam in his third game with the Pirates, but he's hitting a fine .292 with three homers and 16 walks in 113 at-bats for his new team. What he isn't doing is driving in a lot runs: just 12 in 37 games so far. Now that he's getting a look in the cleanup spot against righties, he'll need to get better there.
May 31 - 1:53 AM

Ike Davis went 2-for-4 with two runs scored Friday against the Nationals.

Both hits were singles. Davis is hitting .293 (27-for-92) with two home runs, six doubles, and 10 RBI in 30 games since coming over from the Mets. It would be nice to see more power, but he's a worthwhile pickup for fantasy owners who might have lost Brandon Belt, Joey Votto, or Prince Fielder in recent weeks.
May 23 - 10:29 PM

Ike Davis went 3-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in as the Pirates defeated the Orioles on Wednesday.

Davis homered for the first time in nearly a month on Tuesday and Wednesday's three-hit performance marked his seventh multi-hit game in 19 May games. At the very least, Davis has been getting on base with regularity, and he's now slashing .286/.388/.429 as a Pirate.
May 21 - 10:54 PM

Ike Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles.

Ike's seventh-inning homer off of Miguel Gonzalez was one of four hit by a Davis on the night. Unfortunately, Chris had the other three. Ike's shot was his third of the year and first since April 21. Since joining his new club, Davis is slashing .263/.372/.413 which isn't bad by any means, but the Pirates were hoping for more power from their first baseman.
May 20 - 10:11 PM

Ike Davis went 2-for-3 with a double in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

Giants starter Tim Hudson was dealing, but Davis was able to get the Pirates' only extra-base hit against the right-hander, boosting his average to .208. Though Davis made a good early impression with a grand slam, he entered the night with a .591 OPS in his new uniform and now sports a .208/.321/.333 slash line overall.
May 6 - 10:05 PM

Ike Davis went 2-for-4 and hit his second grand slam of the young season Monday in the Pirates' 6-5 win over the Reds.

Davis was the Pirates' No. 6 hitter tonight, but there's the chance he could replace Pedro Alvarez in the cleanup spot if he keeps this up. After all, the Pirates did just that with Justin Morneau after grabbing him from the Twins last season, bumping Alvarez down to sixth in the order. Davis is 5-for-13 for his new team, and he's hitting .270 overall.
