Mets send first baseman Davis to PiratesThe Mets will receive reliever Zack Thornton and a player to be named for Davis
The Mets announced the move just minutes before they played Atlanta on Friday night. Davis was on the field during batting practice earlier in the day.
The 27-year-old was hitting .208 with one home run and five RBIs in 12 games for the Mets. He was platooning with Lucas Duda and Josh Satin at first base.
Davis hit 32 homers for the Mets in 2012 but fell off sharply last year.
Thornton was 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA in four relief appearances at Triple-A Indianapolis. The 25-year-old righty originally was signed by Oakland.
