Top J.D. Davis News

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Heads to bench Sunday

    Davis is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    Davis started in each of the Mets' last three games and went 3-for-11 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI, but he still may have a tough time finding consistent at-bats against right-handed pitching. With manager Buck Showalter electing to open up more frequent starts for Luis Guillorme in the infield, the Mets look content to rotate a number of players at designated hitter rather than relying on Davis as the primary option at that position.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Remains out of lineup

    Davis isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Brewers.

    Davis recently drew four consecutive starts and went 6-for-15 with a homer, four runs, a walk and five strikeouts during that time. However, he'll be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game while Eduardo Escobar serves as the designated hitter with Luis Guillorme starting at third base.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Sitting Tuesday

    Davis is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

    Davis had started four straight games, grabbing at least one hit in all four, but he'll nonetheless head to the bench here. Nick Plummer will get the start as the designated hitter.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Swats second homer

    Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Angels.

    His fourth-inning blast off Patrick Sandoval proved to be the winning run in a 4-1 victory. Davis has started 10 of the last 12 games, primarily as the Mets' DH, and while he's slashed .341/.391/.463 over that stretch, Sunday's long ball was only his second of the season in 136 plate appearances.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Rare start versus righty

    Davis will bat eighth as the designated hitter Thursday against the Dodgers, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The Mets were forced to shuffle their lineup after Francisco Lindor suffered a finger injury. Davis is a beneficiary and will draw only his eighth start of the season with a righty on the mound. He has maintained a .247/.343/.353 line across 99 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Racks up four hits Monday

    Davis went 4-for-5 with two doubles, two runs and two RBI in a 13-3 win over the Giants on Monday.

    Davis doubled in a run in the sixth inning and notched another RBI with a single in the ninth. He finished with his first performance with more than two hits on the campaign. The big effort lifted Davis' batting average over 40 points from .188 to .230.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Back on bench for Game 1

    Davis is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cardinals.

    Davis had started in three of the past four games, going 1-for-11 with a triple, two RBI and a run. He's expected to continue sharing the designated-hitter role with Dominic Smith, whose left-handedness may give him the edge in terms of playing time.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: On bench again for Game 1

    Davis is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader at Philadelphia, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

    Davis started three of four games in Atlanta following the release of Robinson Cano, but he finds himself on the bench for the second straight game in Sunday's matinee. He's more likely to be in the lineup for Game 2 with lefty Cristopher Sanchez on the mound for Philadelphia. Pete Alonso will serve as the designated hitter in Game 1 with Dominic Smith starting at first base.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Riding pine Saturday

    Davis isn't starting Saturday against the Phillies.

    Davis will get a breather after going 2-for-6 with a double, an RBI and two walks over the last three games. Dominic Smith will serve as the designated hitter and bat eighth.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Takes seat Thursday

    Davis isn't starting Thursday against the Phillies.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Makes another start versus righty

    Davis will serve as the Mets' designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

    After moving past a recent foot injury, Davis has picked up three starts during the four-game series with Atlanta. For the second straight game, he'll be included in the lineup against a right-handed pitcher, as Ian Anderson toes the rubber for Atlanta in the series finale. Meanwhile, the lefty-hitting Dominic Smith is on the bench, perhaps signaling that the righty-hitting Davis could be the Mets' preferred option at DH in the wake of Robinson Cano being cast off the 40-man roster.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Returns to lineup

    Davis (foot) will bat sixth and play third base Monday against Atlanta.

    Davis starts for the first time since Wednesday's game against the Cardinals after getting hit in the foot by a pitch in that contest. However, there's no guarantee his absence was entirely injury-related, as he hasn't been an everyday player this season. He'll make his eighth start of the season Monday, pushing Eduardo Escobar to the designated hitter spot.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: May be available Friday

    Manager Buck Showalter said Davis (foot) is feeling much better and could be available off the bench Friday against the Phillies, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

    The 29-year-old had X-rays on his left foot come back negative after being hit by a pitch Wednesday, and the injury may not end up resulting in much of an absence. Davis remains out of the lineup Friday, though he'd likely be sitting regardless of the injury since righty Aaron Nola is pitching for Philadelphia.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: X-rays on foot negative

    Manager Buck Showalter said after Wednesday's 10-5 loss to the Cardinals that initial X-rays on Davis' left foot returned negative, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Though Davis avoided structural damage to his foot after he was struck by a pitch in his eighth-inning plate appearance, Showalter noted that the 29-year-old was "extremely sore." Davis thus remains at risk of landing on the 10-day injured list, though the Mets could choose to wait and see how he feels after a day or two before reaching a decision on that front.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Exits after HBP

    Davis was removed from Wednesday's game against the Cardinals after he was struck by a pitch near in his left ankle during his eighth-inning plate appearance, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts prior to his departure.

    Davis attempted to take his base after being drilled in the ankle, but he couldn't limp to first base before requiring assistance off the field from a trainer and manager Buck Showalter. The Mets will provide an updated diagnosis for Davis after the game, but it wouldn't be a major surprise if he's sidelined for at least a few days.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Clubs first homer

    Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run in Sunday's 6-2 win against Arizona.

    Davis had his first truly solid game of the season Sunday, singling in the second inning, walking and scoring in the seventh and connecting on a solo shot in the eighth to provide a valuable insurance run. Opportunities have been difficult to come by for the 28-year-old who had just 20 at-bats on the season prior to Sunday, though he's always hit well for New York when given the chance with a .285 average across four seasons with the team.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: RBI and stolen base

    Davis pinch hit and went 1-for-1 with a RBI and a stolen base in a 5-0 win Sunday over Arizona.

    Davis pinch hit for Travis Jankowski in the sixth with lefty Oliver Perez on the mound and singled in a run to increase the Mets' lead to 2-0. He was then replaced in the field by Nick Plummer. It was the first RBI of the season for the 28-year-old Davis, in large part because he has only started three of the first 10 games. He has only appeared as a designated hitter or pinch hitter and has yet to play the field in 2022.
