1st base candidates spring training stats:
Murphy- .196 (10-51) 2HR, 8RBI, 3BB, 9K .228OBP .314SLG
Jacobs- .194 (7-36) 2 2B, 2HR, 4RBI, 7BB, 7K .326OBP .417SLG
Carter- .407 (11-27) 2 2B, 4HR, 9RBI, 2BB, 3K .448OBP .926SLG
Catalanotto- .214 (6-28) 3 2B, 1 3B, 1HR, 7RBI, 3BB, 4K .324OBP .500SLG
Davis- .480 (12-25) 3 2B, 3 HR, 10RBI, 3BB, 8K .536OBP .960SLG
At least for the short term, Jacobs is the logical choice. Jacobs has the most experience, and is familiar with the NL East. Davis and Carter have clearly had the most impressive spring performances. I believe that everyone in the organization realizes that Davis will be the long-term solution at 1st base. If Davis gets off to a good start, and Jacobs struggles, we could see Davis on the fast track to Queens. No one ever wants to see a guy injured, especially the hard working Murphy, but this maybe a blessing in disguise, opening the door to see Ike Davis in a Met uniform.
