Mets Notes: Mets Assign Evans and Pridie To Buffalo, Ike Davis Feeling Good
The Mets have outrighted first baseman Nick Evans and outfielder Jason Pridie to Triple-A Buffalo. Both players have officially cleared waivers and have been removed from the Mets’ 40-man roster.
Each player has the right to declare free agency, but both are expected to accept their assignments.
Evans, now 25, is stuck behind Ike Davis at first base and Daniel Murphy on the bench. He has never gotten a full chance to prove he belongs and in 174 at-bats last season he posted a .256/.314/.413 slash with four home runs and 25 RBI.
Pridie, 28, hit .231 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 208 at bats over 101 games this past season.
Good news yesterday on the walking-wounded front…
Ike Davis, who has not appeared in a game since rolling his left ankle in a collision with David Wright in on May 10, is feeling great and says he will be ready for spring training.
“I feel good. I’m working out, trying to get in shape. I’m doing weightlifting, agility. I’ve done some running and it’s been good. Obviously I don’t know what would happen if I roll it or something, but I think what I’m doing now is probably going to be harder than the actual baseball stuff.”
It’s still hard to believe he’s missed all this time because of that collision. Davis will begin baseball activities in January.
Have a nice weekend everybody.
