It seems like missing most of the 2011 season with an ankle injury and then suffering a case of what was reported to be Valley fever this spring has not affected the swing of New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis. Through eight 2012 Spring Training game Davis has four hits in 10 at-bats (.400), including a double and three RBI. A comeback season for Davis would be a huge boost to the Mets.
Here are some other notable Spring Training stats for the Mets, whoa re 3-5 thus far:
- Adam Loewen, an outfielder with big-league experience with Baltimore and Toronto, is hitting .429 (6-for-14).
- Pitcher Johan Santana has not allowed an earned run in two appearances covering 4.2 innings. Santana's comeback will be one of the big stories for the Mets this season.
- Mike Pelfrey has had a rough beginning. In his only Spring Training appearance thus far, he surrendered six hits and four runs in 2.2 innings, an ERA of 13.50.
