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.
