Ike Davis 1B NYM 28 Days

Ike Davis (calf) is in the Mets' Grapefruit League lineup on Thursday against the Braves.

He'll start at first base in his first Grapefruit League game in nearly three weeks. Davis had been sidelined with a calf strain. The Mets are reportedly shopping him again to other teams, and he has about 10 days to impress visiting scouts in Florida.

Ike Davis (calf) is expected to play in a game Thursday.

Davis has been shut down for over two weeks with a calf strain, but he's feeling much better now. The Mets are said to be shopping him to other teams, and he'll have a chance to impress visiting scouts over these final few weeks of Grapefruit League play.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has resumed shopping Ike Davis.

Alderson is apparently calling up teams who he was in contact with during the winter, so the Pirates, Brewers, and Orioles are among the possibilities. Davis hasn't appeared in a game in more than two weeks due to a calf injury, so it's unlikely that a trade will be a legitimate possibility until he proves his health. His value is at rock bottom regardless.

Ike Davis (calf) and Lucas Duda (hamstring) will not play in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game.

Davis and Duda were supposed to battle it out for the starting first base job this spring, but both are stuck on the minor league side for now as they work their way back from injury. It's not an ideal situation for New York.

Mets skipper Terry Collins said Ike Davis (calf) must run before he can DH.

The first baseman has been sidelined since March 3 with a right-calf strain. He'll test the injury Wednesday. "I haven't tried running on it, so I don't know," Davis said about DHing. "We'll see."

Ike Davis said Monday that he has yet to undergo an MRI on his right calf.

Davis is now wearing a walking boot in order to keep his right leg immobilized and speed up the healing process. While he hasn't undergone an MRI yet, he expects one will happen eventually. Davis still hopes to get two weeks of at-bats prior to the start of the season, but a trip to the disabled list is possible if he fails to make progress. In that scenario, the Mets would likely platoon Lucas Duda and Josh Satin at first base.

Ike Davis (calf) is now wearing a walking boot on his right leg.

Davis has been sidelined for the past week due to right calf tightness and apparently hasn't seen much improvement. We haven't seen much of a battle for the first base job so far this spring, as Lucas Duda is sidelined with hamstring tightness.

Ike Davis (calf) and Lucas Duda (left hamstring) won't be ready to return to Grapefruit League action on Sunday, according to Mets skipper Terry Collins.

Neither has appeared in a game since Monday. "I'd rather have them out in the first half of spring training rather than the last half," Mets GM Sandy Alderson said. "We've got lots of time left."

Ike Davis (calf) participated in Thursday's scrimmage but did not run after making contact.

Davis is still nursing some calf tightness. The good news for him is that Lucas Duda -- Davis' competition for starting first base duties -- has been hobbled all week by a hamstring injury. The duel will likely go down to the wire, unless of course a trade cuts it short.

Ike Davis (calf) won't play until at least Friday.

Davis has been sidelined so far this week due to calf tightness. Lucas Duda, his primary competition for the first base job, is also currently banged up.
