The New York Mets continue battling injury adversity in 2021 and maintain a 3.5-game lead in the NL East through June 7. However, this offense has been missing a key contributor in third baseman J.D. David since May 1. The bad news keeps rolling in as Davis appears nowhere near a return.

Davis originally went to the 10-day Injured List at the beginning of May with a sprained left hand. He's started and stopped rehab assignments several times since then and is still seen wearing a splint on his injured left hand. According to recent reports, Davis hasn't been swinging a bat, which shows his rehab is taking much longer than anticipated.

J.D. Davis Injury Update

Davis was a revelation through the first 14 games of the 2021 season. The righty hitter owns a .390/.479/.610 slash line through 41 at-bats including 2 home runs, 7 RBIs and 3 doubles.

But, with Davis still donning this splint, there's no telling when he'll be back on the diamond.

The Mets continue winning ballgames despite the barrage of injuries. New York owns a 29-23 overall record and sits with +950 odds to win the World Series, according to the latest MLB odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
