Rubin adds that Davis said the boot will keep the lower leg immobilized and hopefully speed up the healing and that the extent of the injury has caught Davis off guard since he merely has felt “tightness.”
The Mets haven’t gotten an MRI on his leg yet but Davis may be preparing for it, I’m sure we’ll do that at some point,” he says.
With three weeks until Opening Day, and the Mets first base situation yet to be resolved, the team may have to plan on breaking camp without Davis, especially if the injury lingers.
But Davis isn’t worried about it, ”It’s just a walking boot,” Davis said. “Nothing crazy happened… Hopefully I’ll get two weeks of games in before the season starts. I can still get a lot of ABs.”
Still, he has just six at-bats this Spring and the plan was to give him 80-100 at-bats according to Collins.
Interesting to see how this plays out in a few weeks.
