Mets first baseman Ike Davis hasn't played since May 10, when he suffered an injury to his left ankle. Unfortunately for Davis and the Mets, it's not healing properly and he'll have to be put back into a walking boot for the next three weeks. This is a major setback. The injury is now being called an inverted sprain and a bone bruise.

"The only baseball activities he can do, basically, is play catch, and he'll be able to swing," manager Terry Collins said (ESPN New York). "But he's not to do any running whatsoever for the next three weeks. There's still a hot spot where the bone bruise is. So we're going to pretty much shut him down from that type of activity."

Even worse, head trainer Ray Ramirez reportedly said he's "never" had a player heal so slowly from this type of injury.

The biggest problem is that once Davis finally gets the boot off, he'll have to build up his leg strength again. By the time he does that and then gets through a minor-league rehab stint, he's probably not going to be back before the All-Star break.

With Davis out, the Mets will likely continue to use Daniel Murphy at first base, and Nick Evans will get the occasional look.

Davis, 24, is hitting .302 with seven home runs, 25 RBI, 20 runs and a .925 OPS. This is his second big-league season, and before the injury he was proving to be one of the Mets' best hitters. He finished seventh in Rookie of the Year voting last year.

This is pure comedy.  First off this didn't even look like an injury when it happened.  Secondly, in an interview after the game Davis himself says, "I don't think it will be an issue, i'll probably miss a few games."  Then, he goes on the DL.  Now 18 days later they realize he'll be out for three more weeks and he needs a walking boot?  OK, I have a few questions.  Why didn't they give him the boot 18 days ago?  Why didn't they shut him down 18 days ago when they felt it was such an injury that he required a DL stint?  Why even let him swing a bat or field a ball at any time during the last 18 days?  The answer is clear and simple, because they misdiagnosed him, again, as usual.  Nothing has changed here folks.  Same old rinky dinky outfit trying to pose as a major market team.
