Ike Davis departs Mets game with strained calf

1 Comment

Still reeling from the Jenrry Mejia and Chris Young news, the Mets suffered another blow Tuesday when Ike Davis left the game against the Rockies with a strained left calf.

Davis, who had a two-run single in the first, was injured during a collision with David Wright in the fifth inning.  He’ll be reevaluated Wednesday to see if a stint on the disabled list is needed.

The Mets would lose an awful lot with Davis out of the mix.  Neither Lucas Duda (.241/.353/.398) nor Nick Evans (.214/.256/.339) is doing much for Triple-A Buffalo, so the Mets would probably shift Daniel Murphy to first base and go with Justin Turner most of the time at second.  Duda, who saw time in left field early on while Jason Bay was on the DL, would be the favorite to be called up.
