Ike Davis scratched from trip. Tight calf. Was only going to DH, so precaution.The injury concerns continue to mount for the Mets with Ike Davis being scratched from today's game against the Atlanta Braves. He removal from the lineup is being described as precautionary, but it should still grab the attention of fans with the first base role unresolved for the upcoming season. It should also grab the attention of those around the league, as it remains possible for Davis to be traded. A significant injury, which this isn't, would almost certainly limit that possibility.

Davis is the second Met, whose job is on the line, to go down in as many days. Yesterday is was shortstop, Ruben Tejada, who was held out of the lineup after complaining of tightness in his left hamstring. Neither injury is expected to be serious, but they are also not ideal as the Mets try to figure out what to do with each player.
