A’s avoid arbitration with Ike Davis for $3.8 million

From Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish comes word that the Athletics have avoided arbitration with first baseman Ike Davis by agreeing to a one-year, $3.8 million contract for the 2015 season.

Davis was designated for assignment by the Pirates on November 20 and then picked up by the A’s a few days later in exchange for international slot money.

The 27-year-old batted just .233/.344/.378 with 11 home runs in 143 games this past season between the Mets and Bucs, but he has good career numbers against right-handed pitching and Oakland is among the best at taking advantage of platoon splits.

The A’s also avoided arbitration on Tuesday evening with reliever Fernando Rodriguez for $635,000, according to MLB Trade Rumors’ Tim Dierkes. They non-tendered Andrew Brown and Kyle Blanks.

Mets place Chris Young on the disabled list

Mets outfielder Chris Young left last night’s game with a strained quadriceps and now he’s headed to the disabled list.

Young actually injured his quadriceps during spring training and sat out Opening Day before joining the lineup for Game 2, but made it just one inning before exiting.

Andrew Brown replaced Young in left field yesterday and should pick up quite a bit of playing time, with Eric Young Jr. also getting more action in Young’s absence.

Young signed a one-year, $7.25 million deal with the Mets in the hopes of bouncing back following a rough 2013 with the A’s and hitting the open market again as a 31-year-old next winter.
