The New York Mets and first baseman Ike Davis avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract worth $3.125 million, ESPN New York reported Saturday.
Davis requested $3.7 million and was offered $2.825 million from the Mets when the two sides exchanged arbitration figures on Friday.
Davis, 25, hit 32 home runs and drove in 90 runs last season after a bad start. He missed most of 2011 with an ankle injury.
