Mets: Ike Davis May Need Surgery

Mets first baseman Ike Davis might need season-ending ankle surgery if his bone bruise has not healed sufficiently in three weeks for him to resume baseball activities.

General manager Sandy Alderson said that Davis has not improved from the injury that has sidelined him since May 11. An MRI taken Wednesday also showed cartilage damage in the left ankle.

Davis will shed the protective boot that he was wearing for the past three weeks in an effort to enhance circulation in the ankle. If he can’t run in three weeks, Davis will likely need an operation similar to microfracture surgery.

Davis was off to a strong start in his second major league season, batting .302 with seven homers and 25 RBIs before he was hurt in a collision with David Wright on May 10.
