Ike Davis on the 15 Day DL, F-Mart Called Up
He will be replaced on the roster by outfielder Fernando Martinez.
Davis suffered the injury in a collision with David Wright on a pop up in the top of the fourth inning of the Mets’ 4-3 win over the Rockies on Tuesday night. While the rest of the team remained in Colorado for Thursday’s rain-delayed series finale, Davis was sent back to New York for tests. Davis is leading the team in RBIs with 25. Daniel Murphy is expected to fill in at first base.
Martinez was batting .292 with three home runs and seven RBIs in 19 games for Triple-A Buffalo.
