Good news! Ike Davis hits the Disabled List. Seems strange to say, right? But when this precaution has him back on the field in a couple of weeks, you’ll be happily enjoying Davis a month from now.
Last year? He’d have been in limbo for a week, then try and come back, injure himself worse, and a month from now, he’d be scheduled to come back around the All Star break. And then he wouldn’t.
As for Fernando Martinez, the shame of it is, wouldn’t you love to see him play every day in left field for two weeks, see what the Mets have? Wouldn’t make sense, since they really need to know what Jason Bay has left first, given his massive contract. Would sure be fun to see Martinez play regularly, though. He’s only 22, and it is way too soon to give up on him.
