After exiting last night’s game in Colorado with a strained calf Mets first baseman Ike Davis has flown back to New York to have the injury examined by team doctors.
Davis expressed optimism that he won’t need a stint on the disabled list, but Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that he’ll undergo an MRI exam.
While leaving the team in Colorado and flying to New York may sound dramatic, the Mets will be in Houston tomorrow and are back home for four games beginning Monday.
Davis has followed up a solid rookie season by hitting .302 with seven homers and a .925 OPS through 36 games.
