The New York Mets will consider trading first baseman Ike Davis this offseason as a way to upgrade other areas of the team, reports Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com:

While that does not guarantee Davis will be moved, it at least is a very plausible option. Davis should be marketable despite a slow start because he is a 30-homer threat with the potential for above-average fielding at first base.

Rubin notes that a trade of Davis would allow Lucas Duda to become the Mets’ regular first baseman, which is his natural position.

New York is disappointed with Davis, according to Rubin, and his "unwillingness to make changes based on coaching advice." While the 25-year-old is "personable and by no means a troublemaker," the Mets are also worried about his tendency to be "out too late after games."

While Davis is in the midst of a down season, there would be some hesitation in trading him due to his 2011 production and the impressive ability he’s shown. He’s hit .223/.302/.444 with twenty-three doubles and twenty-seven home runs this year.
