Ike Davis 1B PIT 2 Months

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ike Davis finished 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored Saturday in his Pirates debut.

Davis doubled in his first at-bat, walked in his second at-bat, and singled in his third at-bat. He's expected to start versus right-handers and seems poised to hit near the middle of the Pirates' batting order, making him a worthwhile add in most mixed fantasy leagues. Davis tallied 32 home runs and 90 RBI in 2012 with the Mets.

Ike Davis is in the lineup and batting sixth for his Pirates debut on Saturday.

Davis, who was acquired from the Mets on Friday, is expected to provide much needed power and run production in the middle of the Pirates lineup. If he's available in any fantasy leagues, he's certainly worth the gamble now that his outlook for everyday at-bats has improved.

Pirates acquired 1B Ike Davis from the Mets in exchange for RHP Zachary Thornton and a player to be named.

The 27-year-old slugger has fallen off after a breakthrough 2012 campaign where he smashed 32 homers and drove home 90 runs. The change of scenery, and the likelihood that he receives everyday at-bats, should be a tremendous boost to his fantasy value affords him the chance to get his career back on track.
