Mets | Ike Davis' statistical woes
New York Mets 1B Ike Davis, who was just optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas, had a .258 slugging percentage, the worst figure among batting-average qualifiers so far. He had a "hard-hit ball" in only 9.6 percent of his at-bats, which accounted for the fifth-worst rate among major leaguers. His problems with chasing were compounded by his .333 slugging percentage on pitches along the strike zone. He's also 9-for-100 in two-strike counts.
Fantasy Tip: Davis will probably need at least a few weeks to get back on track. Las Vegas' reputation as a hitter-friendly ambiance might inflate his progress, if he makes any, but if you don't have to invest much and little to lose, start thinking about stashing Davis if he's been dropped. Patience will be required, though, if you choose to do so.
