Davis (illness) is back in the lineup Friday against the Marlins, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Davis battled an illness in the days leading up to the All-Star break but is good to go following the additional four days of rest. He'll bat second and play left field against the Marlins.
Davis (illness) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports. Davis has been battling an illness over the last few days but appeared as a pinch hitter in each of the past two games. The 26-year-old apparently lost some weight as a result of the illness, so it's no surprise he's been eased back into action by the Mets. Davis seems likely to be available off the bench again Sunday.
Davis (illness) remains out of the lineup but is available off the bench Friday against the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. It sounds like Davis has shaken the stomach virus, but Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record notes that Davis has lost some weight as a result of the illness. With that in mind, it's possible the Mets take it easy on him this weekend and limit Davis to pinch-hit opportunities until he's fully back to being himself. Davis has hit .339/.388/.565 in a part-time role since the start of June (62 at-bats).
Davis was not available for Wednesday's loss against the Yankees due to an illness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Davis may not have been in the lineup regardless, but he likely would have been used as a pinch hitter at some point. The 26-year-old will have Thursday's scheduled off day to recover before the Mets begin a series against the Phillies on Friday.
Davis went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and two RBI on Tuesday against the Yankees. Davis drew the start in left field with southpaw James Paxton on the mound and he delivered his ninth home run of the season in the sixth inning. He played a vital role in the Mets' victory, also doubling in the tying run in the eighth frame. Despite a solid .283/.346/.475 line across 217 plate appearances, Davis has started only twice since June 24.
