New York Mets Place Ike Davis On 15-Day DL

The New York Mets have placed first baseman Ike Davis on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle sprain and bone bruise.  Davis rolled his ankle when he collided with David Wright during Tuesday's game against the Colorado Rockies.  The two were both going after a Troy Tulowitzki pop-up near the mound, a ball that Wright caught.

To take the place of Davis on the roster, the Mets have promoted OF Fernando Martinez from Triple-A Buffalo.  Once a prized prospect, the injury prone Martinez has already spent time on the DL this season.  The lefty has hit well since getting back on the field, homering in each of his last two games.

Daniel Murphy will now shift to first base, with Justin Turner getting more time at second.
