Health updates on Ike Davis, David Wright

by @ 5:55 pm. Filed under 2012 Mets

For once, I would like to write some reports regarding the New York Mets and have it not be about injuries, fevers and ponzi schemes. This will not be one of those days. Promising 1B Ike Davis, who missed most of 2011 with a serious ankle injury, appears to have contracted Valley Fever, a condition that causes extreme fatigue when you are not rested properly or run down. The Fever cost former Arizona Diamondbacks player Conor Jackson to miss most of the 2009 season. Symptoms include cough,chest pains, chills and shortness of breath.It even ended the career of Joe Vavra, who was a teammate of Mets manager Terry Collins, when they played together in the Los Angeles Dodgers system. While the diagnosis has not been confirmed, the team is approaching Davis with caution and closely monitoring their slugging 1B. Collins has pledged to give rest and days off as needed. So far the Mets have no indication that Davis will miss anytime in the regular season. Ike has not missed an drills so far in camp.

Meanwhile, the teams franchise player 3B David Wright has a minor left side issue and will not play in the team’s first two preseason games as a precautionary measure. After INF-OF Scott Hairston strained an oblique Saturday, the team is preceding with caution here. Hairston and Minor League 2B Reese Havens(Back) are scheduled to receive cortisone injections this Monday, March 5th.
