Mets, Ike Davis Avoid Arbitration With One-Year Deal

  • Sharebar

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets and Ike Davis have agreed to a one-year deal worth $3.125 million, avoiding arbitration.

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.

  1. Murphy should get 3M. The Mets may stiff him for slightly less, but he is worth all of the 3M. He has been a leader & played for them since 2008. Without him the Mets would have won less games.This year with a year at 2nd base & stronger legs he’s working on HRs. I think he will hit 18-20 HRs.

    • I definitely think they will sign Murphy before they go to arbitration. The Mets never like going to arbitration, so I don’t think they will. I agree he is worth all of the $3mm although I would like to see more of the 2011 Murphy (the one who hit .320).
