Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Mets | Ike Davis expected to return soon

New York Mets 1B Ike Davis appears ready to rejoin the major league club in the near future with the team facing a string of right-handed pitchers in their next five games. However, 3B Josh Satin, who has been playing first base, is hitting .395 for the Mets. Davis is batting .269 in 19 games with Triple-A Las Vegas after going 0-for-5 with three strikeouts Monday, July 1. "According to them he's made big progress. He's still got a little movement in his hands, but certainly not as drastic as it was. He's more upright. They said he's driving the ball the other way much better than when he got there. He's not just a pull guy. So he's made big progress," manager Terry Collins said.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is available in a wide range of leagues (justifiably), and nobody will likely run to the wire to snatch him up if he's recalled this week. If you have the space, why not pick him up and see if his mechanical adjustments can help him rebound in the second half - if you're in a deep enough league.
