In desperate need of a healthy first baseman, the Yankees have reached a deal with former Oakland Athletic Ike Davis, according to multiple reports.
Davis has been released from his minor league contract with Texas. He hit .268 with four home runs and 25 RBIs for Triple-A Round Rock.
The 29-year-old played for Oakland last season, hitting .229 with three home runs and 20 RBIs. He had 32 homers for the New York Mets in 2012.
New York went into Sunday's game against Detroit with Rob Refsnyder starting at first base. He's been playing there lately after moving over from second base. Backup catcher Austin Romine also can play first.
