With the news that first-base prospect Ike Davis is en route to New York and will join the big league club, does that mean Mike Jacobs will stay in the Mets organization?
Jacobs said he wouldn’t report to Triple-A if he was going to play off the bench. With Davis, Buffalo’s starting first baseman, vacating the position, that opens the position for Jacobs to play every day. And I doubt they’re going to let Chris Carter play every day.
Unless… The Mets could promote Nick Evans, who is tearing up Double-A pitching for Binghamton and release Jacobs outright. But that all hinges on whether or not they think the Davis promotion is a long-term or short–term solution.
