Davis went 1-for-1 with a three-run home run Tuesday against the Nationals. Davis hit for Zack Wheeler in the seventh inning and delivered a three-run shot to put the Mets up 4-3. It was his fifth homer of the season and second in his past five appearances. He remains the team's primary option at third base, though he was relieved by Todd Frazier for Tuesday's contest. Davis has given the Mets few reasons to keep him out of the lineup with his early-season performance, hitting .283/.356/.472 across 118 plate appearances.
Davis is not starting Tuesday against Washington. Davis' .276/.345/.438 season slash line is far better than Todd Frazier's .203/.239/.344 line, but the pair continues to split time at third base. Frazier will get the call for Tuesday's game.
Davis went 2-for-3 in Sunday's loss to the Marlins. The line doesn't seem like much, but Davis was all that was standing between the Mets and being no-hit, as he had the team's only two knocks of the afternoon against Sandy Alcantara. The 26-year-old is slashing a solid .287/.357/.455 through 37 games and remains the primary option for manager Mickey Callaway at third base, starting six of the last nine contests, but that's likely to change once Jed Lowrie (knee) finally gets healthy.
Davis is not in the lineup Saturday against the Marlins. Davis appeared to be moving back ahead of Todd Frazier in the pecking order at third base, starting five out of six games, but Frazier has since gotten the call in two straight contests. Davis could have some opportunities in the outfield in the near future with Michael Conforto out with a concussion, but that opportunity won't come Saturday.
Davis went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Marlins. Davis entered the game in the sixth inning and took over in left field as part of a double switch for Jacob deGrom and then took Trevor Richards deep in the seventh to chase the Miami starter from the game for his fourth home run of the year. He could see extra outfield opportunities while Michael Conforto (concussion) and Jeff McNeil (abdomen) are on the shelf, but he's been seeing regular action at third base lately anyway, although he hasn't been doing much with it. Davis is hitting .235 (8-for-34) in May with a 0:10 BB:K, and Friday's homer was his first since April 14.
