The beleaguered first baseman is reportedly generating interest from multiple clubs.

Mets first baseman Ike Davis is one of the most interesting keep-him-or-deal-him subjects of this offseason. Should the front office stick with him and hope he can translate his amazing second half of 2012 into a full season of mashing, or do they decide that he's destined to be an injury-prone disappointment and trade him while his value is still somewhat high?

According to Jon Heyman of CBS, there is still a lot of interest throughout the league for the enigmatic Davis. Heyman says that the Astros, Orioles, Rays, Brewers, and Rockies have all "checked in" on what the Mets are offering in a trade. Newsday's Marc Carig is also seeing a lot of love pour in for Davis.

Fans should probably be concerned that the Rays are one of the teams interested, but on the other hand, it's not as though there's room for both Davis and Lucas Duda on the roster unless you still fancy Duda as an outfielder.
