One of the longest-running player health sagas this summer has been the state of Ike Davis‘ ankle. It’s bad, we know, but the big question has been whether he’d need microfracture surgery or if a less-horrific procedure would get the job done.
Today Jon Heyman reports that it appears that Davis will avoid the horrific. He should continue his rehab and should be ready to go by spring training.
Losing Davis was a much bigger blow than people seem to realize for the Mets. He was off to a fantastic start when the injury went down, hitting .302/.383/.543 with seven home runs, 25 RBI. Having him back and healthy next year will be huge for a Mets team that needs a young cornerstone player.
