Ike Davis Progressing with Ankle Injury
Yesterday, several sources around the New York Mets confirmed that injured first basemen Ike Davis has taken the next step in testing his injured ankle.
Here’s what Adam Rubin of EspnNewYork reported on Davis:
According to SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt this is what he had to say on Davis:
And finally, Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated who pointed it that this work will help the Mets and Davis determine whether season ending surgery can be avoided or not:
Going forward this may not mean much at all, but this will certainly be a positive factor on deciding whether or not the 2nd year talent will need season ending ankle surgery or not.
This could be the first step in a line a few steps in getting the services of Davis back at some point in 2011. If the Mets can continue to remain in the National League’s Wildcard race somehow, someway, imagine the lineup the Mets could throw out there every day down the stretch.
Combined with a return of a healthy David Wright and Jose Reyes, the Mets would no doubt boast one of the National League’s most feared lineups.
A lineup that would consist of leadoff man Jose Reyes, Angel Pagan, Carlos Beltran, Ike Davis, David Wright and Jason Bay would certainly be as formidable as any in the game, something the Mets environed early on in the season.
In just 36 games played this year, Davis is batting .302 with seven home runs and 25 RBI. Those seven home runs are still second on the team, despite Davis being out nearly two months.
