Ike Davis To Be Called Back Up To Mets For Brewers Series
After spending nearly a month in the minors, the Mets hope Ike Davis has had a chance to fix the hole in his his swing.
Davis is set to be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday and will be available as the team opens a series in Milwaukee.
The slumping first baseman was sent to the Pacific Coast League on June 10, hitting a miserable .161 with 66 strikeouts against just five home runs and 15 RBI’s in 186 at-bats this season.
In Vegas, Ike clubbed seven long balls to go with a greatly improved .293 batting average.
Mets.com reports, Davis has reduced the hitch in his swing – which is being blamed for his off-timing at the plate.
Josh Satin has been filling in a first, batting a solid .353 (18-for-51) in 18 games.
