A pair of calf strains have kept Ike Davis out of action in spring training so far.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis was wearing a walking boot on his right leg Monday.

Davis has not played in an exhibition since March 2 due to calf strains in both legs. He's said the right is a little worse that the left.

Davis says "Hopefully, I'll get two weeks of games in before the season starts."

He is batting .167 (1 for 6) with a home run and two RBIs in two spring training games. He is competing at first base with Lucas Duda, who has been sidelined since March 3 because of a tight hamstring.
