Mets Trade Rumors: No deal with Brewers for Ike Davis

Mike Stobe

The Mets reportedly asked the Brewers for young, controllable pitching.

The Mets reportedly asked the Brewers for young pitching in exchange for Ike Davis, according to Jim Duquette. After Milwaukee said no to the Mets' request—for Tyler Thornburg or a similar pitcher—the Mets told them they were out on the Ike Davis trade talks.

If Duquette's accounting of the trade talks is accurate, that could be good news for the Mets, assuming they have a better offer from another team for Davis. It's also possible, of course, that the Brewers are simply close to a deal with Corey Hart and would prefer him to Davis.

With Lucas Duda and Josh Satin on the Mets' 40-man roster, the team has reportedly been trying to trade Davis this winter. If they do, Duda and Satin figure to platoon at first base in 2014.
