Ike Davis's Incredible June

We may not have liked Ike in May, but we like him again now.

After two brutal months to begin the 2012 season, Ike Davis completely turned things around in the month of June. In April and May, Davis was simply the worst hitter among regular players in Major League Baseball. We looked at what a demotion to Buffalo would mean to Ike and the Mets, suggested he be sent down to make room for Jason Bay, and, more recently, suggested that Ike could be back.

Let's have a look at Ike's monthly splits.

Month AVG OBP SLG wOBA wRC+
April .185 .241 .309 .244 51
May .154 .214 .282 .203 23
June .264 .363 .563 .391 151

In the month of June, Ike hit six home runs and matched David Wright, who has continued his excellent season with very few hiccups, in slugging percentage. Ike's June numbers, particularly wOBA and wRC+, are virtually identical to his injury-shortened 2011 season. He probably isn't quite that good, but anything close to that level of production would be perfectly acceptable for the rest of this season.
