Mets’ J.D. Davis was oblivious to Astros’ alleged sign-stealing (New York Post)



J.D. Davis hasn’t heard from MLB in their investigation into the Astros’ alleged illegal sign stealing tactics, and said he isn’t expecting an inquisition.

The Mets acquired Davis from the Astros before last season. Davis played sparingly with Houston’s major league club in 2017, when the alleged incidents occurred. He also had a limited role for the club in ’18.

“I have no idea, I was kind of the freshman among the seniors,” Davis said. “I have no idea what was going on or what’s really happening. That is MLB’s investigation.

“I wasn’t aware of anything and even if there was I wish I would have known, because I batted only .180 or .200 or something like that, but I really have no clue.”
