Ike Davis Traded to the Oakland A’s


Former Met Ike Davis has been traded by the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Oakland A’s. Davis was traded by the Mets to the Pirates in April for two low-end prospects.

The Pirates designated Davis for assignment earlier this week, in order to clear room for their top prospect, pitcher Jameson Taillon, on their 40-man roster.

SF Chronicle’s Susan Susser first reported this deal. The Pirates received international slot money in exchange for Davis.

With Ike Davis gone, all indications point to Pedro Alvarez, who was an All-Star in 2013 but struggled in 2014, moving to first base.
