Mets | Ike Davis hitting sixth

New York Mets struggling 1B Ike Davis was dropped to sixth in the lineup Monday, May 20, after his week-long trial in the cleanup spot was up. 2B Daniel Murphy is remaining in the leadoff spot against the Cincinnati Reds. Murphy hit the go-ahead home run in the leadoff spot for the first time this year Sunday, May 19. Murphy has an eight-game hitting streak. Davis went 1-for-24 in six games back in the cleanup spot last week. OF Rick Ankiel will hit second for the first time.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets are considering demoting Davis to the minor leagues if he doesn't turn it around very soon, so you should be at the point where you are considering cutting him from your team, too, especially if you're in a shallow mixed league.
