Rangers | Ike Davis nursing knee sprain

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 22:40:33 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Ike Davis (knee) missed the Cactus League spring game Monday, March 14, as he is dealing with a mild sprain of the right knee. He is considered day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is angling for a bench spot in Arlington, so he isn't worth much more than a roster spot in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues at this point.

Rangers | Texas has other options for LF

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 10:30:53 -0800

With Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) already feeling pain in his left knee this spring, the Rangers have alternatives in OFs Justin Ruggiano, Ryan Rua, Joey Gallo and James Jones. Another option is 1B Ike Davis, but he's played just two innings in the outfield in his career.

Fantasy Tip: As most everyone knows, Hamilton is a massive injury risk. Because of that, he's nothing more than a late-round stab in deep mixed leagues. The Rangers might have to get creative with all of their alternatives. Of that group, Gallo is the most attractive because of his monster power capabilities and third base eligibility.

Rangers | Ike Davis joining Texas

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 18:42:45 -0800

Free-agent 1B Ike Davis (Athletics) is expected to sign a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has been an all-or-nothing hitter throughout his career, and he isn't worth drafting unless he is in line to see regular at-bats.

Yankees | Ike Davis joining Yanks?

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 10:33:57 -0800

Free-agent 1B Ike Davis (Athletics) is expected to sign a minor league deal soon, and the New York Yankees are in the mix.

Fantasy Tip: Davis would represent an insurance policy at first base behind Mark Teixeira with Greg Bird expected to miss the entire season. Davis has some pop and would be intriguing with the short porch in right field at Yankee Stadium in AL-only leagues.

Brewers | Milwaukee seeking first baseman

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 10:21:48 -0800

Free-agent 1B Pedro Alvarez (Pirates), 1B Steve Pearce (Orioles), 1B Ike Davis (Athletics), 1B Chris Carter (Astros) and 1B/OF Daniel Nava (Rays) are of interest to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever lands at first for Milwaukee will have some value, possibly hitting between Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy.

Athletics | Ike Davis should be ready by spring

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:19:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics trainer Nick Paparesta said 1B Ike Davis (hip), who underwent season-ending hip surgery Thursday, Aug. 27, is expected to be ready by spring training.

Fantasy Tip: In 74 games for the A's, Davis hit .229 with three home runs and 20 RBIs. Mark Canha ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is expected to be the team's full-time first baseman for the remainder of the season and warrants consideration in AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Athletics | Ike Davis' season over

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:17:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis (hip) has a torn hip labrum and will need to undergo surgery.

Fantasy Tip: You can drop Davis in all single-year formats. The season-ending injury basically cements regular playing time for Mark Canha ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) for the remainder of the season. He's still a sleeper pick on FantasyScore, and he's hit better against right-handers in 2015.

Athletics | Ike Davis put on DL

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:31:36 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis (hip) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hip Wednesday, Aug. 19, and OF Jake Smolinski was recalled from Class AAA Nashville in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Smolinski could see occasional starts here and there, but his fantasy value will be limited to deep AL-only leagues. Mark Canha ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is the real winner here, as he should become an everyday player again. He has actually hit much better against righties this year, and he can be a cheap, effective sleeper pick in daily games in the right matchups.

Athletics | Ike Davis not in lineup

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:55:05 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. OF Mark Canha is starting at first base and hitting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) actually has hit better against right-handers in 2015, going 44-for-166 (.265) with all eight of his long balls. However, he's nothing more than a deep sleeper and help with salary cap relief on FantasyScore. Dickey is perhaps one of the hottest starting pitchers of late and likes pitching at home this year.

Athletics | Ike Davis playing Saturday

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 12:02:39 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis will bat seventh against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Saturday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) returns to action after sitting out against left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Friday, Aug. 7. He is batting .364 (8-for-22) against Houston and is 2-for-3 with a double against McHugh in his career, making him a decent value play in FantasyScore this afternoon.
