Ike Davis To Wear Walking Boot On Right Leg

MLB: New York Mets-Workout

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York writes that Ike Davis sported a new accessory in the clubhouse on Monday morning, a walking boot on his right foot.

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.”

Even if Davis has to start the season on the DL, the Mets don’t have to make any drastic moves at this point, since they have Josh Satin and Lucas Duda who can fill that role for now.

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.
