Ike Davis‘ sophomore season was ruined by a ankle injury and multiple setbacks, but the Mets first baseman said yesterday that he’s now “good to go” and has “been fine for a while now.”

Davis opted for rest and rehab rather than microfracture surgery, telling Dan Martin of the New York Post: “It’s great to know I’m training for a season rather than training to see if I can get back on the field or have to have surgery.”

Davis reported to Mets camp in Florida yesterday and said he plans to take things slow initially, but barring more setbacks it certainly sounds like he’ll be ready for Opening Day after missing 126 games last season following an excellent start.

    All good and fine, but how is he, shape-wise? America wants to know.

    Who cares, the Mets coming season is nothing to get excited about unless the Wilpons sell the team.
