Davis' return this season appearing unlikely
CINCINNATI -- Though Mets first baseman Ike Davis continues to work out in Arizona, the Mets are beginning to concede that his return this season is unlikely.

Davis -- who has been on the disabled list since May with a bone bruise in his left ankle -- recently completed a running progression at less than full speed, jogging a 30-yard route 10 times. Though manager Terry Collins said there is "a glimmer" of hope that Davis could return this season, the Mets are preparing for the prospect of season-ending surgery.

"It's all about making sure he's ready for next year," Collins said.

If Davis is not ready to ramp up his rehabilitation in two weeks, the Mets will almost certainly shut him down so that he has enough time to recover from surgery before Spring Training.

"I just want to make sure that when we walk out there next February," Collins said, "Ike Davis is ready to go."
