Scouting Mets Prospect #23: Ike Davis

The New York Mets tabbed former Arizona State first baseman Ike Davis as their top selection in the 2008 MLB Draft. Davis had a disappointing first season in the organization as he struggled to find any footing at the plate with Brooklyn, but confidence remains that he can get pointed in the right direction next season and beyond.

Vital Statistics:
Name: Ike Davis
DOB: March 22, 1987
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 195
Bats: Left
Throws: Left
Status: 1st Round Pick – 18th Overall (2008) – Arizona State University

The weight of being selected the top overall pick in the draft by one's club often comes with the loftiest of expectations. That was no different for first baseman Ike Davis who endured a very trying rookie season of disappointingly low production in Brooklyn.

Davis, who hit for power with a high average during his final collegiate season at Arizona State, was a highly touted selection by the Mets but his skills did not immediately translate to the next level. In 58 games for the Cyclones, he hit .256 with 17 RBI and surprisingly zero home runs. He did not mince words when sharing his opinion about the season.

"The whole season was disappointing for me. I felt like I didn't the play way I wanted to or the way I know I can. My power was disappointing. I had a good amount of doubles and the hit ball hard, but I do think I could have had some more production," Davis described.

"It was a big learning experience this year. I'm glad I got this year under my belt because it will help in my future seasons to know what to do, what not to do and how to change things in the season. I'm not too upset how this season came together though I am disappointed, but I know I'll get better from it," he continued.

Despite his high draft status, Davis was not immune to the difficulties of adapting to baseball at the professional level. The schedule, the difference in play and even the switch to wood from aluminum all created problems that he did not think would plague him as they did.

"There weren't really many challenges and it wasn't like the level of baseball was too much. I think it was really on me," he said. "I really just had to learn to play every day and manage my game on a daily basis within the schedule."

"I went to Brooklyn and got accustomed to pro ball life and playing every day. I put in the work, got used to wood bats, the conditioning, and it took me a little while but I started to figure it out towards the end of the season and hit a little better. I didn't think it would take me until then to get going though."

But Davis knows mental toughness and desire can go a long way to carry him out of poor pattern or slump. His hottest streak did not come until he hit .368 over his final ten games, but even that small sample size gave him perspective about how to better manage his game in the future.

"[This season] was about taking every day as a learning experience, building a plan, but I wasn't really coming through as I wanted. I'd just been in a funk since the end of the college year and I didn't really get out of it until there was about a week left in the season. I was giving a lot of at-bats away and when I don't have a good plan up there, I'm really in a hole anyways," he said.

"I learned I had to minimize the amount of time I'm in slumps by keeping things simple and trusting myself. That was the biggest thing I learned this summer. I need to have a plan for every type of pitcher and really know what I'm doing up there and that helped me out at the end."

Batting and Power: Davis has power potential but displayed little of it during the season. He is quick on the inner half and can drive pitches to pull, but his power quickly decreases when he goes the other way. Home runs should be less difficult to come by as he does a better job incorporating his lower half into his swing. He stands with a rather upright position while holding his bat almost perpendicular to the plate and fell into a bad habit of dropping his hands and using mostly with his shoulders which sapped his power. He is at his best when he keeps hands back, keeps the bat level through the zone and drives with his legs. When properly executing, Davis' tools makes him a formidable contact hitter but there are concerns about the growth of his power especially given his prime defensive position.

Base Running and Speed: Davis is an average runner with decent technique on the bases. He takes fairly big strides but his form is a bit awkward considering his tall and comparatively thinner frame. He will not risk taking extra bases often, but knows when to pick his spots.

Defense: Davis' work at first base was without a doubt his strongest area in Brooklyn. He reads hops very well and is quick with his glove to both sides. Soft hands and a very good arm allow him to make accurate relay throws to second base or make other plays around the infield. However, his range is somewhat limited but his size and fast reaction time help make up what he loses in mobility.

Projection: While the numbers and Davis' own opinions speak to a disappointing season, looking ahead one can throw out what he did or did not accomplish in Brooklyn. He now enters the 2009 season in a precarious position having to eliminate the negativity surrounding his rookie season. He has previously been compared to John Olerud, and he could become a similar style player who hits for a good average and swats 15-20 home runs per season but the proof will be in the putting. His time in Brooklyn threw a wrench into previous projections and now he needs a big second season to demonstrate that the Mets were correct to select Davis as a possible future first baseman.

ETA: 2011. Even though he struggled in Brooklyn, Davis should be ticketed for St. Lucie when the season begins. Yet, even with the early disappointment and the likely challenges the Florida State League will provide, Davis will benefit most from two-plus years on the farm before breaking through in 2011.
