[1]Fed up after getting swept by the Miami Marlins for a second straight weekend, the New York Mets demoted three players to Triple-A Las Vegas after Sunday’s defeat: first baseman Ike Davis, outfielder Mike Baxter and left-handed reliever Robert Carson.

Davis, making $3.125 million and a staple at first base for the Mets since April 2010, was the highest-profile player demoted. Manager Terry Collins pinch hit for Davis, who is hitting .161 (30-for-186) with 66 strikeouts this season, on Sunday for the second straight game.

The Mets plan to promote first baseman Josh Satin, outfielder Collin Cowgill and left-handed reliever Josh Edgin, according to a league source.
