Finally a First Baseman: Ike Davis Trade Tree

Finally consummating a deal that was long rumored in the offseason, the Pirates have acquired 1B Ike Davis from the Mets in exchange for minor league RHP Zack Thornton and a player to be named later.

Davis, 27, will fill the left-handed hitting half of a first base platoon with Gaby Sanchez. He hit 32 HR in 2012 and sports a career line of .241/.334./.433.

Thornton was acquired from Oakland for RHP Chris Resop, who was a waiver claim from the Braves. No word on who the PTBNL will be, but Jon Heyman tweets it will be a “fairly significant” player.
