Ike Davis

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Ike Davis' season is in jeopardy.

The Mets first baseman hasn't played since May 10 because of a left ankle injury and his rehab hasn't gone well. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters Wednesday that the team would shut Davis down for three weeks and if he doesn't improve, he'll need season-ending surgery.

Davis has been in a  protective boot and was examined again Wednesday when an MRI showed cartilage damage in addition to a bone bruise.

Davis will ditch the boot in an attempt to improve blood flow and allow the cartilage to heal. If he can't run comfortably after three weeks, he'll have to have microfracture surgery.

Davis collided with David Wright on a popup on May 10 in Colorado, suffering a sprained ankle and a bone bruise. At the time, Davis was the Mets' best hitter, hitting .302/.383/.543 with seven home runs.

Fred Wilpon...please sell the team...Please!!! It is simply unbelieveable tha the Mets' doctors could be this idiotic.  The Wilpons do nothing right from scouting to signing FA to hiring GM's and managers to finding reliable doctors...unbelieveable how pathetic the Wilpons are...
