Davis joins Yanks in Colorado; Girardi says he'll see action
DENVER (AP) Ike Davis is feeling healthy again and ready to resume his career with the New York Yankees.
Davis joined the Yankees in Colorado for the start of a two-game series against the Rockies. The first baseman wasn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game, but manager Joe Girardi says he's going to get plenty of action.
Davis' arrival was necessary after four first basemen were lost to injuries. Mark Teixeira, Greg Bird, Dustin Ackley and Chris Parmelee are all on the disabled list.
Davis had hip surgery last September and endured a long rehab process. He signed with the Texas Rangers in spring training and has been playing for Triple-A Round Rock. He was released from his minor league contract on Sunday and signed with New York on Monday.
