Ruf, 35, is batting .216 this season with 11 home runs and 38 RBIs. He has played eight MLB seasons with a .244 average, 67 home runs and 195 carer RBIs.
The Mets are currently in first place in the NL East with a record of 65-37 and Ruf will likely give them a nice bat off the bench as they push towards the playoffs.
Davis is heading to San Francisco as a 29-year-old who has played six MLB seasons with the Mets and Astros. He has a career batting average of .266 with 42 homer runs and 132 RBIs. The Giants are also getting prospects, which have not yet been named.
