Ike Davis Is “Ready To Play”

Some good news from Anthony Rieber of Newsday:

Ike Davis said Tuesday he is “good to go” for spring training after more than two months of hard rehab on the freakish left ankle injury that cost him most of the 2011 season.

“I’m there now,” he said after a two-hour workout at Fischer SportsPhysical Therapy and Conditioning near his Phoenix-area home. “Right now it’s not, ‘I wonder if I can play.’ It’s ‘I’m ready to play.’ ”

“In my mind, it’s really in the past,” Davis said. “Now I’m set up for the season and playing good baseball.”

Davis was on the verge of a huge campaign in 2012 before his unfortunate collision with third baseman David Wright. He was hitting .302 with a team-leading seven home runs and 25 RBIs in 36  games before the injury.
