The Mets cut ties Friday with struggling first baseman Ike Davis.

The Mets are shipping Davis to the Pirates in exchange for minor league reliever Zack Thornton and a player to be named later.

The 27-year-old former first-round pick has been with the Mets since 2010.

In 2012, he hit a career-best 32 home runs, but last year, he hit just 9 homers and was sent to the minors for a time.

This season, Davis had just 1 home run, but it was a walk-off grand slam.

Lucas Duda is expected to take over at first base full-time.
