News: The Oakland Athletics have filled their second key position in five days, acquiring first baseman Ike Davis and international bonus slot 86 from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for international bonus slot 27. Impact: The 27-year-old Davis began last season with the New York Mets and batted .208 with a home run and five RBIs in 12 games before Pittsburgh acquired him April 18 for pitchers Zack Thornton and Blake Taylor. A left-handed hitter, Davis then batted .235 in 131 games for the Pirates, finishing 2014 with a .233 overall batting average and 11 homers and 51 RBIs in 143 games.(STATS, 5:35pm)

News: Davis was traded to the Athletics on Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Davis was moved for international slot money and will reportedly serve as organizational depth at first base. The A's already have Brandon Moss, Stephen Vogt and the newly-added Billy Butler as options at the position, meaning it could take multiple injuries for him to see significant time at first.(RotoWire, )

News: The Pirates designated Davis for assignment Thursday. Pittsburgh has 10 days to trade Davis or release him. Impact: Davis hit .235 with 10 homers and 46 RBIs in 131 games with the Pirates after being acquired in an April trade from the New York Mets. The left-handed Davis served as part of a platoon at first base with right-handed Gaby Sanchez but found himself out of a job with the Pirates likely moving Pedro Alvarez to first in 2015.(STATS, 9:46pm)

News: The Pirates designated Davis for assignment Thursday. Impact: This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as Davis' tenure in Pittsburgh was mostly disappointing. After coming over from the Mets in mid-April, Davis hit just .233/.344/.378 with 11 homers and 51 RBI in 131 games. He's been trying to increase his versatility in recent weeks by working in the outfield in Arizona, but the market for Davis may be rather thin.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis has been working in the outfield in Arizona recently to increase his versatility, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports. Impact: The 27-year-old hasn't appeared at any position other than first base in his five-year major league career, but he's been trying his hand in the outfield lately in an attempt to boost his value. Davis is eligible for arbitration this winter, but it's no guarantee the Pirates tender him a contract after he hit .235/.343/.378 with 10 homers in 131 games with the club in 2014.(RotoWire, )
