"I'd be surprised if he resumes some baseball activities in the next three weeks," Collins said.
Ike Davis #29 1BNew York Mets 2013 STATS GM103 HR9 RBI33 R37 OBP.326 AVG.205 WASHINGTON -- Ike Davis clutched his right side on a third-inning swing and departed Saturday night's game against the Washington Nationals. Davis produced a sacrifice fly on the play, but clearly was uncomfortable as he walked back to the dugout with trainer Ray Ramirez. He was replaced the following half-inning at first base by Lucas Duda. Because side-muscle injuries often take time, Davis' apparent injury to that region likely would be a big boon to the lefty-hitting Duda's playing time.

NEW YORK -- Mike Baxter did not want his return to the majors to be prompted by an injury to David Wright. The outfielder nonetheless was excited to be back in the home clubhouse at Citi Field on Saturday morning, after taking a 6 a.m. flight from Nashville, where Triple-A Las Vegas had been playing. Baxter, along with Ike Davis and Robert Carson, had been part of a June 10 mass demotion. He was hitting .212 with four RBIs in 85 at-bats at the time he was dispatched to the minors.
Injured Mets outfielder Lucas Duda (left intercostal strain) and top catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud (foot) are both playing for the GCL Mets on Wednesday. Duda is currently on the disabled list and this is his first minor league game. Duda is playing left field, not first base, so Ike Davis doesn't have to worry just yet. D'Arnaud is playing in his first game since fracturing the first metatarsal in his left foot. He could be a September call-up.
