The New York Mets sit atop the NL East division with a record 40-22 despite suffering numerous injuries across the roster. Fortunately, the team's latest injury update comes with good news as starting infielder J.D. Davis could return soon and is set to start a minor league rehab assignment.
J.D. Davis Injury Update
Davis has been out since the beginning of May due to a left middle finger sprain and was recently transferred over the the 60-day IL. However, he remains on track to be activated within the next few weeks, assuming there are not setbacks and his rehab assignment goes on without a hitch.
The starting third baseman was scorching hot at the plate before getting injured as Davis posted a slash line of .390/.479/.610 through his first 14 games played. Overall, he racked up 5 runs scored, 2 home runs, 7 RBI and 4 walks.
The Mets could use all the help they can get on offense as they are averaging just 3.61 runs per game in 2021, which is the second-lowest total in the MLB. Davis' return to the lineup would give the Mets some much needed depth and allow current starter Luis Guillorme to return to his utility role.
This is a squad that looks poised to make a playoff run if they can figure out their issues at the plate. Davis' impending return could be the shot in the arm this lineup needs.
The Mets are currently tied for the fourth-best odds to win the World Series at +850, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
