Ike Davis isn’t expected to return this season, but he is making progress with his injured left ankle.
According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, Davis resumed baseball activities yesterday at the team’s complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida. He played catch, fielded grounders and hit off a tee and took soft tosses.
Davis, who injured his ankle in a collision with teammate David Wright on May 10, is scheduled to meet the Mets in Florida next week and work out in front of the team’s training staff. He still has some hurdles to cross, but there is increased optimism that he will be able to avoid microfracture surgery.
Davis, 24, was batting .302/.383/.543 with seven home runs, 25 RBI and a .925 OPS over his first 149 plate appearances prior to the injury.
