Astros, Brewers among teams liking Ike

By Adam Rubin

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Astros, Brewers, Orioles, Rays and Rockies have all inquired with the Mets about Ike Davis, reported.

The Mets expect to trade a first baseman -- Davis or Lucas Duda -- this offseason, and team officials appear to prefer dealing Davis.

One team official said this week a half-dozen teams have at least expressed interest. The official added that the Mets could wait until deeper into the offseason to trade a first baseman, when free-agent prices and availability prompt more teams to investigate trades.
