There is more discouraging news about the Mets’ Ike Davis, who is wearing a walking boot on his right foot and doesn’t expect to play for at least another week.
Inexplicably, Davis hasn’t had a MRI, and to compound matters, took a swipe at the media, saying: “Obviously I could have went out there and blown out and dealt with more articles about not saying it’s hurt.’’
Of course, that was in reference to him saying he hid an oblique injury last season.
With three weeks until Opening Day, Davis won’t get close to the 90-plus at-bats the Mets hoped and appears he’ll likely open the season on the disabled list.
* Bartolo Colon worked four innings and gave up three runs on five hits in an 11-1 rout by the Marlins. Offensively, the Mets managed six hits and struck out ten times.
* Dillon Gee threw four scoreless innings in a “B’’ game with Miami.
* Las Vegas manager Wally Backman interviewed to manage the Dominican winter-league team, Aguilas Cibaenas.
* Lefty-reliever Josh Edgin was in the first round of roster cuts, leaving the Mets with Scott Rice as the only lefty in the bullpen. It is possible John Lannan could give the Mets another lefty. Also optioned were left-handers Steven Matz and Adam Kolarek; pitchers Erik Goeddel, Logan Verrett and Chasen Bradford; catcher Kevin Plawecki; infielders Danny Muno, Wilfredo Tovar and Dustin Lawley; and outfielders Brandon Nimmo and Cory Vaughn.
