It took him a while and two tries, however, Ike Davis has made his arrival to New York, suiting up for the Yankees set up of the injured Mark Teixeira. At some point, even the rumor of him leaving made a news.

At the point when the Yankees lost proclaimed prospect Greg Bird to season-ending shoulder surgery before spring training started, Ike Davis, who is yet to be married, quickly saw an open chance

The Yankees, who were reeling in the wake of losing a critical insurance policy behind Mark Teixeira at first base, agreed and pursued Davis on a small time bargain.

Be that as it may, in spite of the Yankees' need and Davis' longing to come back to New York in the wake of spending the initial four or more years of his vocation with the Mets, he eventually ruled against the reunion.

Things being what they are, the baseball gods needed the Yankees and Davis to get together from the beginning.

Davis, the player with the net worth of $3500000 joined the Yankees on Tuesday for their series against the Colorado Rockies subsequent to concluding a major-league contract with the team on Monday. For the Yankees, the availability  of a power hitting the  first baseman with a major league experience was happy. A parade of wounds to Teixeira, Dustin Ackley, Bird and Chris Parmelee had abandoned them without a true first baseman on the roster.

Manager Joe Girardi said he plans to begin Davis against right-handed pitching, notwithstanding utilizing him as a late-inning defensive replacement for Rob Refsnyder. Refsnyder, a rookie, was named the everyday first baseman a week ago after in spite of failing to have played the position as an expert. He will keep on starting against left-hand pitchers.

“There are some thoughts of, ‘What’s going to happen with your career?’ or if you’re ever going to play again,” Davis said.
