Alderson Likes Ike’s Chances, Will Begin Baseball Activities
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Ike Davis, who has been hobbled with an ankle injury, will begin baseball activities next week.
Ike Davis actually ran bearing his full weight on flat ground, not on a treadmill, on Saturday in his native Phoenix, GM Sandy Alderson said. So far, Davis’ injured left ankle has responded well, prompting Alderson to suggest Davis will begin baseball activities this weekend in New York.
Only three weeks ago, the Mets were considering season ending surgery for Ike Davis, so what a dramatic turnaround this is.
Running on flat ground was the big test and it looks like Davis passed with flying colors. Alderson, had this to say about it:
“It’s a question of how he’s feeling and whether he can tolerate running,” Alderson said. “Based on what we’ve seen the last few days, we’re encouraged. Anything can happen, but it’s been encouraging.”
