According to a baseball source close to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, the Mets will consider trading first baseman Ike Davis during the offseason “as a way to upgrade other areas of the team and open a spot for Lucas Duda at his natural position.” Andy Martino of the New York Daily News writes that they're open to trade either Duda or Davis for the right price although they're not going to shop them aggressively.
The team is not happy with Davis' unwillingness to make changes based on coaching advice and the fact that he stays out too late after games adds Rubin.
Davis, 25, is hitting .223/.302/.444 with 27 HR's, 81 RBI's and a 104 OPS+ in 529 plate appearances for the Mets this season. The 26-year old Duda on the other hand, is hitting .246/.331/.402 with 14 HR's, 54 RBI's and a 102 OPS+ in 417 plate appearances in 2012.
