Yankees to sign Ike Davis

Posted June 13, 2016

With Mark Teixeira out indefinitely, the Yankees signed Ike Davis on Sunday to start against right-handed pitchers. The Yankees are carrying eight relievers and three-bench players at the moment, so they figure to go back to a normal seven-man bullpen and four-man bench soon. Newsday's Ken Davidoff was the first to report that the Yankees had contacted Davis' representatives. This might not be a minor league deal. The New York Yankees are looking for anyone to play first base and now, Ike Davis may be the next option since every other regular player at the position has gone down with a significant injury.

The Yankees have been plagued with injuries at first base this season.

In 2015, Davis spent the year with the Oakland Athletics and hit a subpar.229/.301/.350 with three homers in 74 game but his best years came when he was in NY. Swisher has said he's frustrated at the situation and perhaps to make matters worse for the former World Series champ, the Yankees signed Davis on the same day Swisher hit two home runs for the Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre RailRiders.
