Ike Davis is running with a purpose
The first baseman "did some extensive running" in Arizona on Thursday and Friday, according to general manager Sandy Alderson, who spoke to Davis yesterday.
"He pretty much ran all out," Alderson said.
Alderson said Davis ran with "few problems" and later clarified that and said he had "no pain."
Davis was expected to run again yesterday and today. He will then come back to New York to be examined and also consult with specialists in North Carolina before reaching a final conclusion.
"We'll make a decision before Labor Day, but no decision has been made," Alderson said. "The last few days have been encouraging, but we have to see what happens."
If Davis does go under the knife, he would have to do so soon in order to be ready for spring training. The surgery would either be at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan or in North Carolina.
