Yesterday, each side submitted their arbitration offers with Ike Davis asking for $3.7 million and the Mets countering with a $2.825 million offer. Davis is a “Super Two” player, meaning he has accumulated enough MLB service time to receive arbitration a year early. MLB Trade Rumors had him projected to make $2.8 million if the two sides went to arbitration.
Davis, 25, hit .227 last year with 32 home runs after playing only 36 games in 2011.
Daniel Murphy is the only Met projected to go to arbitration at this point, although he could agree to a contract and avoid arbitration like Davis did today.
