Ike Davis went 2-for-3 with a single and a 2-run HR against the Brewers. He also struckout once.

Fantasy Impact: Ike Davis is likely going to platoon with Billy Butler for the Athletics which has cut off much of his fantasy value, but seeing him getting his power swing going is encouraging nonetheless. The power for Davis is real, but the batting average has been subpar for him, and until that changes he is tough to count on for fantasy owners. Draft him as a late round/1$ flier in AL-Only leagues with some upside if his playing time overtakes Butler's.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't a major concern as Davis should be ready to rock for opening day. Davis is nothing more than a reserve first baseman at this point but is worth monitoring just in case he finds the switch to the American League agreeable this season.
