Mets’ Ike Davis Injures Calf During Infield Collision

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — The injury bug bites again.

Mets first baseman Ike Davis left in the fifth inning of New York’s 4-3 win over Colorado on Tuesday night after he strained his left calf. He appeared to trip over David Wright’s foot as the two closed in on a pop up by Troy Tulowitzki.

Wright hung on to the ball near the mound for the second out of the fourth inning as Davis tumbled to the ground. Davis bounced up quickly but was limping noticeably. He remained in the game for the final out of the inning, but was replaced in the field to start the fifth.

Davis, whose single in the first inning drove in the Mets’ first two runs, is returning to New York for an MRI.

“I don’t feel like it’s that bad,” Davis said Wednesday. “You’ve got to take precautions, I guess.

“I feel like I could play in a couple of days. I don’t think there’s anything torn. It would hurt more if there was something torn, I feel. It’s a little sore, but the day after it’s usually a little sore.”

Wednesday’s game was rained out, but manager Terry Collins had no plans to use Davis in the series finale, which will be made up Thursday.

Davis wasn’t sure what happened on the play.

“We didn’t really collide that hard,” he said. “I think I just rolled my ankle or something. At the time, there was a lot of pain everywhere. They’re going to see how I feel (Wednesday) morning, and if it’s still bothering me, then maybe an MRI.”

With Davis out of the lineup, Daniel Murphy moved from second base to first, and Justin Turner came into the game to play second.

Can the Mets survive another injury? Sound off below…

    I am an idiot.


      Another happy Mets fan who wants to share his intelligence with the rest of the world. You have to love it. Nothing like rattling a Mets fan to get your day going.

      They’re easy targets because they makes themselves easy target by being, well, morons.

    Who said the last place team in the NL East was great ? If you can’t take success gracefully , you are going to have a monster time with failure , so enjoy the heights now , because when you fall , it is a long way down , as we Mets fans know . That’s not “Misery” talking , it’s experience .

    • SNY NEWS FLASH!!!!!

      and no one has more experience in losing then Mets fans. And regarding the height the Yankees are on, you haven’t been paying attention the last 16 yrs, the Mets had a little run from ’85 to ’88 & that’s very small in comparison to the Yankee’s Jeter, Mo, Posada & Pettite run. 11 East Divisions / 15 post season appearances / 7 Pennants / 5 rings

      I wouldn’t even mentioned the teams of the past before them because that’s really unfair, that’s child abuse & that’s against the law in this country.
      The Yankees are the Yankees, they don’t win 1 championship & go away, they have build many dynasties in their history.

      As Yankees fans we’ve been on top every decade, some with a lot more success than others but they’ve there. “Top of the World Ma” Talk about experience, we have it.

  • Nick Adams

    Spoken like a true Yankee fan who glories in the misfortune of others .

    • SNY NEWS FLASH!!!!

      what misfortune, these are the Mets we’re talking about, if they didn’t have bad luck they would not have any luck at all. I’m sure that’s why you think they’re so great when they’re not.

      Your response is classic Mets fan. Misery loves company so you need to share your thoughts, yet cry foul when you don’t like the return. Classic.


    You keep thinking that Uncle Fester Adams, but it will not take the pain away. I’ll tell you how bad it’s gotten for Mets fans, they play X-Box 360 Baseball 2k11 and still loss to the Yankees & Phillies.

  • Nick Adams

    You’re talking about Yankee fans , of course .

  • You Will Not Survive

    This couldn’t happen to a better team, with the most obnoxious, rudest, braggarts, idiots’ fans in all of sports.
