Ike Davis 1B PIT 24 Days

Davis (illness) is not in the lineup for the Wild Card game against the Giants.

Davis had to leave the Pirates' regular season finale with flu-like symptoms, presumably the same issue that is holding him out of Wednesday's game. He's on the roster so he may be available off the bench, but Gabby Sanchez will get the start in first in his place, batting seventh.

Davis left Sunday's game due to flu-like symptoms, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

Davis was held out of Friday's lineup due to illness, but was able to return to action Saturday to go 0-for-3 at this dish. Despite getting the starting nod again Sunday, it appears his symptoms have re-appeared, forcing his early exit. If the Pirates end up having to play a tiebreaker game with the Cardinals on Monday, consider Davis questionable for that contest. However, his health should come back around if the find themselves in a NL Wild Card game Wednesday.

Davis is out of the lineup Friday against the Cubs, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

Davis has started seven straight games for the Pirates, but will give way to Gaby Sanchez with left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada on the mound for the Cubs. Davis has just a .256 OPS against southpaws this season, so the move makes perfect sense from a statistical standpoint. There's a chance Davis could sit Saturday as well, with another left-hander, Felix Doubront, on the mound.

Davis started his third consecutive game Friday, going 1-for-3 against the Reds.

Davis has hit two monumental blasts in those games and figures to start against righty, Alfredo Simon, on Saturday. Davis has two hits and two walks in nine at-bats against Simon. He's hot right now and deserves merit as a fantasy option.
