Ike Davis could return next weekend

Ike Davis could return to the Mets as soon as next weekend, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

Rubin notes the Mets will at least keep Davis from playing against the White Sox in Chicago this week – they will be facing two left-handed starting pitchers in their three-game series at US Cellular Field.

Davis is hitting .310 with four home runs in 42 at-bats over 12 games with Triple-A Las Vegas.
