DENVER – Mets first baseman Ike Davis was to return to New York for an exam on his injured left calf.
Davis left in the fifth inning of New York's 4-3 win over Colorado on Tuesday night after he strained the calf when he appeared to trip over third baseman David Wright's foot as the two closed in on Troy Tulowitzki's popup. Davis bounced up quickly but was limping noticeably. He remained in the game for the final out of the inning, but was replaced in the field to start the fifth.
New York said after Wednesday's game against the Rockies was rained out that Davis will be examined by team physicians.
