Out since May 10 with a bone bruise in his left ankle, Ike Davis told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that he’ll seek a second opinion from doctors back in New York and will likely undergo an MRI exam.

Initially the Mets were hopeful that Davis could return when eligible to come off the disabled list in two weeks, but he’s already been out for three weeks and hasn’t even been able to do any running yet except when using an underwater treadmill.

Daniel Murphy has started 15 of 16 games at first base in Davis’ absence and has hit relatively well with a .276 batting average and .775 OPS, but that can’t compare to Davis hitting .302 with a .925 OPS in 36 games prior to the injury.

    Just confirmed: the second doctor agreed that, yes, that is Ike’s ankle.
