The New York Mets are looking to bolster the lineup at the trade deadline by acquiring a DH. The Mets haven't received a whole lot of production out of the designated hitter role this year, and that could prompt GM Sandy Alderson to bring in a slugger at the deadline. J.D. Davis was one of the players expected to fill in at DH for the Mets this year, but his production simply hasn't been there. With the trade deadline looming, Davis got brutally honest on his future in Queens, admitting it wouldn't be shocking if he were offloaded by the Mets, via The New York Post.

“I know that [Alderson] as a GM has to listen to every [proposal] that is being sent to him and I know his job is on the line and he needs to make the right decisions for the team,” Davis said. “If it happens, it happens and I will get a clean slate somewhere else. But as of right now I am trying to do my best to be a good teammate. Even when I am on the bench I try to look at video, look for any tendencies … look if a pitcher is tipping.”

“I can’t really worry about playing time, my mechanics and the trade deadline, all three, or I am going to just get consumed with kind of a negative cloud, so I don’t really want to go down that road or get distracted when the team needs me out there to compete.”

Davis understands that what happens at the deadline is out of his control. All he can do is put his head down and continue grinding away and hope for better results at the plate.

Across 59 games this season, Davis is slashing .240/.328/.353 with just 3 home runs and 19 RBI this season. Those numbers are especially surprising considering Davis boasts an elite 60% hard-hit percentage, which ranks in the 99th percentile among MLB batters. His .346 BABIP suggests he hasn't been at all unlucky at the plate, though.

There could very well be a handful of teams interested in bringing Davis on board at the deadline, and with the Mets openly looking to bring in a DH, the 29-year-old understands that his tenure in Queens could be nearing its expiration date.
