Mets Recall Ike Davis

Ike Davis’s sojourn in the desert is over — the Mets will recall Davis from Las Vegas and he will be with the team for Friday night’s game in Milwaukee.

Davis played 21 games in the minors, batting .293 with seven home runs and 13 RBIs. Davis was hitting just .161 with five homers and 16 RBIs before being sent down.

While there, Wally Backman and hitting coach George Greer worked with Davis on his mechanics, keeping him relatively quiet in the batters box. If you recall, Davis had all sorts of movements before swinging and missing at pitches.

It is not yet known who will be sent down when Ike Davis is officially activated. It should not be Josh Satin, who is riding a 10-game hitting streak and is batting .353 since taking over first base. The Mets are currently carrying 13 pitchers, so it would make sense to send down one of them, probably Gonzalez Germen, who has not pitched since his recall earlier in the week.

UPDATE:

Germen was officially demoted to make room for Davis.
