The Mets still have competition on the supply side of the first-base market, with Texas' Mitch Moreland and now Seattle with Justin Smoak.
"It does reconfigure the market somewhat for first basemen," Alderson said about the Mariners' additions. "But how it plays out will not be a function of how we analyze it. It's how it plays out. So it may take a while for that to happen."
Asked if Davis trade talks may drag on beyond this week, Alderson said: "It's possible."
