Ike Davis will spend the next three weeks in a walking boot

So much for Ike Davis’ speedy recovery.

The Mets just announced that he’ll wear a walking boot on his injured ankle/foot for at least the next three weeks, meaning he’s likely more than a month away from potentially returning from the disabled list.

Davis was unable to run three weeks after suffering the injury on May 10, so after getting a second opinion and an MRI exam he’s been shut down with what manager Terry Collins called an “inverted sprain.” Previously the Mets have called it a “bone bruise.”

Whatever the case, the news isn’t good and Daniel Murphy will get an extended look as the Mets’ primary first baseman.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
