Ike Davis and Lucas Duda will both be on the Opening Day roster, GM Sandy Alderson said on Tuesday. He didn’t make a call on which player would start, though.
Last week, Alderson cautioned against making a rash decision and possibly trading one of the first baseman.
“You have to be a little more cautious and maybe not do something that has ‘forever,’ implications,” Alderson said at the time (Ackert, March 20).
Davis and Duda have only played in a handful of games this spring due to a myriad of leg injuries. Terry Collins said last week whichever player is able to play will get the starts.
“Right now, it’s probably who’s going to be the healthiest,” Collins said last week (Diamond, March 20).
