Ike Davis Illness, David Wright Injury Updates

The New York Mets say there has been "no change" in the diagnosis of first baseman Ike Davis, whom they are treating as if he has Valley Fever despite the fact that blood tests were negative.

The team says Davis is cleared to play, and Davis said he is simply trying to avoid extreme fatigue.

"I feel great. I don't have any symptoms of it. I'm not coughing. I'm not throwing up blood. I'm not doing anything. It's not even hard to breathe. And the doctors said I could play. Just don't get really, really fatigued. So that's what we're doing. If I get really tired, I just step to the side and take a break," Davis told reporters.

Meanwhile, third baseman David Wright will miss the team's first two exhibition games due to stiffness in his left ribcage. Scott Hairston is out with a strained oblique muscle.
