Ike Davis' season may be over. After grabbing his side in the third inning of the New York Mets' matchup against the Washington Nationals last night, Davis had to leave with an oblique strain. He injured himself on a swing.
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York says the general healing timeframe for an oblique injury likely means Davis' season is done. If it is done, the Mets may have seen the last of him. After a roller coaster of emotions throughout his time with New York, Davis has never developed into the player the Mets hoped he would have. He was even demoted at one point this season.
Regardless, Davis has had some productive times with the Mets. He has produced an OPS above league average in every season aside from this one. In his career, Davis is a .242/.334/.434 hitter. He has shown flashes of the power the Mets thought he would have, but his nine home runs this season have been a surprising disappointment.
Davis is still under team control through the 2017 season. However, the Mets could look to trade him during the offseason. There have been rumors swirling around Davis for some time now. As it became clear that he would not be the player the Mets wanted him to, trade rumors began to sprout. Now, with this injury, it's possible the Mets have seen the last of him. This winter will tell the story.
