Mets 1B Ike Davis Hurting, Wearing A Walking Boot On Right Leg
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis was wearing a walking boot on his right leg Monday.
That’s not good news for a player who is desperately trying to prove himself this spring.
Davis has not played in an exhibition since March 2 due to calf strains in both legs. He’s said the right is a little worse than the left.
Davis says “Hopefully, I’ll get two weeks of games in before the season starts.”
He is batting .167 (1 for 6) with a home run and two RBIs in two spring training games. He is competing at first base with Lucas Duda, who has been sidelined since March 3 because of a tight hamstring.
