Davis was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Saturday, Brendan Kuty of the Star-Ledger reports. This move was a result of Mark Teixeira being activated from the DL. If Davis clears waivers he will head to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Mets started Davis for a stretch in mid-June, but the veteran went just 3-for-14 with five K's. They have opted to leave Rob Refsnyder with backup duties at first.
Davis is not in the lineup Wednesday for the second day in a row. Davis started at first base four times in a five-game stretch last week, but it appears the Yankees have turned back to Rob Refsnyder at first base, as he will start Wednesday for the second day in a row. Neither player figures to see much action when Mark Teixeira returns to action in the near future, but one of them will likely slot in as Teixeira's backup.
Davis is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies. Davis had been locked into a strict platoon at first base with Rob Refsnyder after signing with the Yankees, but he'll head to the bench Tuesday despite the right-handed Chad Bettis being scheduled to pitch for Colorado. The 29-year-old has hit just .214 with his new club and may be at risk of seeing a further drop in playing time -- or losing his roster spot completely -- with Mark Teixeira slated to return from the DL on Saturday.
Davis is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Twins, Newsday's Erik Boland reports. Davis started two straight games against right-handers upon joining the Yankees, but he will give way to Rob Refsnyder at first base Friday with lefty Pat Dean due up for Minnesota. It appears Davis and Refsnyder will be deployed in a platoon at the position for at least a week while Mark Teixeira (knee) works his way back.
Davis is in the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Rockies, Brendan Kuty of New Jersey Advance Media reports. Davis will make his first start as a Yankee on Wednesday. The first baseman will bat seventh. In the minors, Davis slashed a decent .268/.350/.437 in 142 at-bats.
