Between The Numbers: Short Season to Majors in Two Years

Clay Davenport

Ike Davis went from short-season ball to the majors in two years, despite horrible numbers in his debut. A look at other players who made a similar transition.

Ike Davis has had a very unusual pro career.

As Kevin notes elsewhere, Davis was regarded as a bust after a dreadful 2008 season. A first-round pick in 2007, Davis hit for a true average of just .246 in his pro debut season – and that is without translating.
