PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Ike Davis is among multiple candidates being considered to be added to Team USA for the World Baseball Classic, an official familiar with the process told ESPNNewYork.com.

A vacancy arose because Mark Teixeira suffered a right wrist strain.

"At this point I think there are a lot of names being considered, including Ike," the source said.

Team USA begins first-round play Friday at Chase Field against Mexico.
