New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis will head down to Port St. Luice, Fla., on Monday night to begin working out at the team’s spring training complex.

Davis (sprained left ankle) was placed on the disabled list after colliding with third baseman David Wright while trying to catch a popup last Tuesday night against the Colorado Rockies.

“I feel good,” said Davis, who got the boot off his ankle two days ago and is now wearing an air cast. “Obviously I’m walking a lot better right now, and hopefully I’ll go down to Florida, and hopefully get everything good, get some ABs and get back here the 26th, I think is the first day [eligible to come off]."

Davis is confident that he’s not going to have any setbacks and be able to rejoin the team as soon as he's eligible. He said for now he’s just icing his ankle and doing a bit of strengthening.

At this point, he doesn’t know what type of rehab he’d be going through, as far as getting games in. But he will wear a wrap while playing.

Davis said he isn't upset at Wright, and there's no animosity toward him.

"I'm not mad at him," Davis said laughing. "I just wish I would've heard him calling for the ball."
