Lucas Duda, Ike Davis

Davis and Duda hitting in minor-league game

Ike Davis and Lucas Duda played in separate Single-A games Friday afternoon at Tradition Field.

Davis was 1-3, with a double and two walks. The team did not let him run the bases as he continues to work back from a tight calf muscle.

Duda was hitless in four plate appearances with a walk. He hit a long fly-ball out to the right field wall. He also didn’t run the bases, but he later did light jogging in the outfield.

David, Duda 1 for 9 combined against A ball pitching. Things are looking up.

Can you actually call it a 1st base competition when no one is competing?

This site is great! Where else can you find people insisting that their favorite major league team start a career minor leaguer in Seratelli at SS and an almost career minor leaguer in Satin at 1B?

Ike doubled, wiffle ball rules or stick ball (city version, past the Buick but before the no parking sign on the fly)?

"Hitless" is a word none of us want to hear.

Who cares what these to bigfoots do. We all now within two years they probably will be out of BB or signed to minor league deals elsewhere.

Useless info without telling us who they got the hits off.  A hit in the first PA of a B game, off a MLB/AAA pitcher (the way Gee/Mejia threw on Monday vs MIA), is more significant; a hit off the guy who pitches at the end of the game to get his work (Logan Verrett, for example) is less significant.

So Duda Tejada and Flores go to camp to get fit Flores is the only one who got fit and he isn't allowed to play ss.

Wait, I thought you just said Davis wasn't ready to return to action.

All this means is that Duda can at least walk out of the clubhouse after getting released. Ike may need a wheelchair when he gets the pink slip

Who ran out the double for Davis?  Jeff, Fred or Jay H?

@Haig Mathosian  Can we stop with the Satin hype, the guy is going to be 30 and has shown little to think he would be a good option for every day 1b, he has no power, isn't a great glove... some mets fans are over hyping this guy way too much. If anything they should just sign Morales if his price ever comes down.

@Haig Mathosian  Please stop it.  He would not start for any other team in the majors. He is a back up. If you want to give him 600 AB's and see what he can do, be my guest, but I'm guessing you'll be complaining about him even worse after 1 year.

@72tilltc  Kevin Mitchell of the '86 Mets was an outfielder, he also played SS, usually when a flyball pitcher like Sid Fernandez was on the mound. So why can't they just play Wilmer Flores at SS, when Colon, another flyball pitcher, is on the mound during the regular season. Flores can supposedly hit and we all know this team needs all the good sticks it can get. If not, then give Tejada a week at SS, if he's still playing poorly then play Flores there consistently so he can learn the position as best as possible because ST will be over soon.

@Bob Burket My money is Horowitz. I'm also guessing Ike jogged to 2nd and then sat down in the dugout.

@hankincolo  Every one is acting like Flores cant play etc. The real fact is Tejada never had range and now he cant throw and cant even stop a grounder. Flores can play deeper and get to more balls . Will he be nimble turning DP or flipping the ball ? NO! but he is still light years better than Tejada.
