Ike Davis expected to be ready for spring training


Athletics first baseman Ike Davis is expected to be ready for spring training, head trainer Nick Paparesta says, as MLB.com’s Jane Lee reports. Davis underwent season-ending surgery on his left hip.

Davis, 28, hit .229/.301/.350 with three home runs and 20 RBI in 239 plate appearances for the Athletics this season. The A’s purchased him from the Pirates in November last year.

Davis, earning $3.8 million this season, will enter his fourth and final year of arbitration eligibility heading into 2016. After the season, he will be eligible to become a free agent.
