Isaac “Ike” Davis and Jeurys Familia have been named the Mets’ Sterling Player of the Year and Pitcher of the Year respectively.
Davis, who split time between the advanced-A St. Lucie Mets and Double-A Binghamton, hit .298 / .381 / .524 with 20 home runs and 71 RBI. Davis is currently on Team USA in the World Cup being played in Europe.
Familia made 23 starts for Single-A Savannah, going 10-6 with a 2.69 ERA and 1.157 WHIP. Familia tossed 134 innings, striking out 109 and walking 46.
Adam Rubin ponders if Daniel Murphy will simply be a placeholder for Ike Davis, who will likely start the 2010 season with Triple-A Buffalo.
I’m all for it. I hate how the team rushes players, but if the guy is showing talent, keep promoting him until he’s ready for the big leagues.
