Market for Mets 1B Ike Davis: Astros, Brewers, Rays, Rockies, Orioles

ORLANDO, Fla. -- There appears to be decent trade interest in Ike Davis despite his awful 2013 season.

The Astros, Orioles, Rays, Brewers and Rockies all have checked in as the Mets field offers.

Milwaukee may prefer re-signing its own guy Corey Hart, however.

The Mets appear set to go with Lucas Duda after Davis' second straight season hurt by a slow start. Davis recovered in 2012 to hit 30 home runs, and though he hit much better in the second half last season, he still finished with a .205 batting average, only nine home runs and 33 RBI.

Duda did well after switching from the outfield last season. He also has a decent track record for on-base percentage.

The Mets also have Josh Satin, who did a nice job in 2013.
