Ike Davis is “good to go” and has “been fine for a while”

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.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
