  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Back on bench for Game 1

    Davis is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cardinals.

    Davis had started in three of the past four games, going 1-for-11 with a triple, two RBI and a run. He's expected to continue sharing the designated-hitter role with Dominic Smith, whose left-handedness may give him the edge in terms of playing time.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: On bench again for Game 1

    Davis is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader at Philadelphia, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

    Davis started three of four games in Atlanta following the release of Robinson Cano, but he finds himself on the bench for the second straight game in Sunday's matinee. He's more likely to be in the lineup for Game 2 with lefty Cristopher Sanchez on the mound for Philadelphia. Pete Alonso will serve as the designated hitter in Game 1 with Dominic Smith starting at first base.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Riding pine Saturday

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Takes seat Thursday

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Makes another start versus righty

    Davis will serve as the Mets' designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

    After moving past a recent foot injury, Davis has picked up three starts during the four-game series with Atlanta. For the second straight game, he'll be included in the lineup against a right-handed pitcher, as Ian Anderson toes the rubber for Atlanta in the series finale. Meanwhile, the lefty-hitting Dominic Smith is on the bench, perhaps signaling that the righty-hitting Davis could be the Mets' preferred option at DH in the wake of Robinson Cano being cast off the 40-man roster.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Returns to lineup

    Davis (foot) will bat sixth and play third base Monday against Atlanta.

    Davis starts for the first time since Wednesday's game against the Cardinals after getting hit in the foot by a pitch in that contest. However, there's no guarantee his absence was entirely injury-related, as he hasn't been an everyday player this season. He'll make his eighth start of the season Monday, pushing Eduardo Escobar to the designated hitter spot.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: May be available Friday

    Manager Buck Showalter said Davis (foot) is feeling much better and could be available off the bench Friday against the Phillies, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

    The 29-year-old had X-rays on his left foot come back negative after being hit by a pitch Wednesday, and the injury may not end up resulting in much of an absence. Davis remains out of the lineup Friday, though he'd likely be sitting regardless of the injury since righty Aaron Nola is pitching for Philadelphia.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: X-rays on foot negative

    Manager Buck Showalter said after Wednesday's 10-5 loss to the Cardinals that initial X-rays on Davis' left foot returned negative, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Though Davis avoided structural damage to his foot after he was struck by a pitch in his eighth-inning plate appearance, Showalter noted that the 29-year-old was "extremely sore." Davis thus remains at risk of landing on the 10-day injured list, though the Mets could choose to wait and see how he feels after a day or two before reaching a decision on that front.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Exits after HBP

    Davis was removed from Wednesday's game against the Cardinals after he was struck by a pitch near in his left ankle during his eighth-inning plate appearance, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts prior to his departure.

    Davis attempted to take his base after being drilled in the ankle, but he couldn't limp to first base before requiring assistance off the field from a trainer and manager Buck Showalter. The Mets will provide an updated diagnosis for Davis after the game, but it wouldn't be a major surprise if he's sidelined for at least a few days.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Clubs first homer

    Davis went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run in Sunday's 6-2 win against Arizona.

    Davis had his first truly solid game of the season Sunday, singling in the second inning, walking and scoring in the seventh and connecting on a solo shot in the eighth to provide a valuable insurance run. Opportunities have been difficult to come by for the 28-year-old who had just 20 at-bats on the season prior to Sunday, though he's always hit well for New York when given the chance with a .285 average across four seasons with the team.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: RBI and stolen base

    Davis pinch hit and went 1-for-1 with a RBI and a stolen base in a 5-0 win Sunday over Arizona.

    Davis pinch hit for Travis Jankowski in the sixth with lefty Oliver Perez on the mound and singled in a run to increase the Mets' lead to 2-0. He was then replaced in the field by Nick Plummer. It was the first RBI of the season for the 28-year-old Davis, in large part because he has only started three of the first 10 games. He has only appeared as a designated hitter or pinch hitter and has yet to play the field in 2022.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Starting Friday

    Davis is batting seventh as the designated hitter Friday against the Diamondbacks.

    Davis will make his third start of the season Friday, all of which have come as the designated hitter, but it's the first time he'll start against a right-handed pitcher (Zach Davies). The Mets have already started four different players at designated hitter this year, with Pete Alonso, Robinson Cano and Dominic Smith also seeing time. Davis should continue to see most of his playing time against left-handers and may not see much action in the field while the rest of the lineup remains healthy.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Set to earn $2.76M in 2022

    Davis and the Mets agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $2.76 million contract, avoiding arbitration, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Davis won't receive much of a pay increase from his 2021 salary ($2.1 million) after his offensive production lagged well behind the pace of his breakout 2019 campaign (.896 OPS) for the second straight year. Though the 28-year-old was at least a well-above league-average performer in 2021 with a .285/.384/.436 slash line (130 wRC+), his lack of defensive utility along with the Mets' improved options at the corner-infield and corner-outfield spots hampered his playing-time outlook. Davis is healthy again after undergoing a procedure in October to address a hand injury that nagged him at points last season, but even with the designated hitter coming to the National League, the Mets don't look like they'll have room in the everyday lineup for him.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Ready for spring games

    Davis (hand) will bat second and play third base Saturday against the Nationals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Davis missed the tail end of last season with a torn ligament in his left hand and underwent surgery after the season. While his health is no longer a concern, his playing time still is, as the Mets have a number of options who can play third base or designated hitter.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Undergoes surgery

    Davis underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left hand Tuesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Davis appeared in just 73 games this season while battling injuries. He looked good as usual at the plate when healthy, hitting .285/.384/.436, though that came with a 32.2 percent strikeout rate and an unsustainable .426 BABIP. He'll hope that better health cancels out the inevitable regression next season.

  • Mets' J.D. Davis: Set for surgery

    Davis will have surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left hand immediately after the season concludes, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Davis has battled the injury throughout the season, with surgery initially being deemed unnecessary. However, he'll now fly to Ohio immediately after the season to have the procedure done. Davis will require two months off after the surgery, and will be in a splint for four-to-six weeks. It is expected that Davis will be fully healthy well before the start of spring training.
