Ike Davis, who missed the final five months of the season after colliding with David Wright on May 10th and rolling his ankle, “has resumed workouts after a hiatus and indicated the injury appears behind him,” according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

Davis — who never underwent surgery to address his ankle injury — told Rubin he “feels good” and expects to be ready for 2012:

I’m working out, trying to get in shape. I’m doing weightlifting, agility. I’ve done some running and it’s been good. Obviously I don’t know what would happen if I roll it or something, but I think what I’m doing now is probably going to be harder than the actual baseball stuff. … When you can’t run or do anything with your legs for a certain amount of time, you kind of lose your muscle, but it’s easy to get back. That’s what I’m doing now. It only takes a month or two to get strength back. I wish it was the season time, because I feel like I’ve already had an offseason.”

Well, if for nothing else, it’s nice to receive some good news once in a while.  Especially after reading about Reyes receiving an offer from the Miami Heat, umm, I mean Marlins.  Anyway, it’s nice to hear Ike is doing well.  With the start he got off to last season you got that feeling a star was about to be born in Queens.  In 36 games (129 at-bats), Davis batted .302 while belting seven home runs and driving in 25 runs for the Mets.  His bat and middle of the lineup presences will be needed and with the fences moving in a tandem of Wright and Davis could be one to fear for opposing pitchers. And, for Mets fans could be fun to watch:
