According to NY Newsday, Ike Davis said Tuesday he is "good to go" for spring training after more than two months of hard rehab on the freakish left ankle injury that cost him most of the 2011 season.
"I'm there now," he said after a two-hour workout at Fischer Sports Physical Therapy and Conditioning near his Phoenix-area home. "Right now it's not, 'I wonder if I can play.' It's 'I'm ready to play.' "Davis, who has been working out three to four times a week since Halloween, was injured when he collided with David Wright on an infield pop-up on May 10 at Coors Field in Denver.
After a month off, Davis ramped up his workouts with no idea if his ankle could stand the pounding. It did. Now he is doing his normal baseball workouts -- he started hitting on Jan. 2 -- with a little extra ankle stuff thrown in, like pulling a 200-pound sled weight across a turf field, as he did Tuesday.
"In my mind, it's really in the past," Davis said. "Now I'm set up for the season and playing good baseball."Davis was hitting .302 with a team-leading seven home runs and 25 RBIs in 36 games before the injury.
