ESPNNewYork.com is reporting that the Mets have designated first baseman Mike Jacobs for assignment, leaving room for Ike Davis to be called up, according to unidentified sources.
According to the report, Jacobs was released to make room for the call-up of Tobi Stoner from Triple A to help out the weary bullpen from last night’s 20-inning game. When the now 13-member pitching staff is rested, Davis is expected to join the Mets to fill the ailing first base position.
It’s a move that many fans will be happy with and one that frankly makes sense right now. Neither Jacobs nor Fernando Tatis was performing very well offensively. Davis could be the shot in the arm the Mets need in that position and for the club overall.
What do you think of the move?
