WASHINGTON -- Ike Davis is expected to miss the remainder of the season because of a right oblique strain suffered while producing a sacrifice fly in the third inning Saturday.
Sandy Alderson said Davis will return to New York on Sunday and get an MRI after the Labor Day weekend.
Terry Collins said Lucas Duda will be his primary first baseman minus Davis, with Josh Satin seeing action against southpaws. Wilmer Flores might see limited time at first base once David Wright returns.
Davis said the oblique had been bothering him for a couple of months, but seemed to subside a week ago, so he thought he was in the clear.
Davis said he coughed on the bench later in the game and felt like he had been stabbed.
As for Davis' future with the organization, Alderson said: “You have to take into account the entire body of work, as abridged as it might be. It’s what we have available to us, and it’s what we’ll use to evaluate him and where we are going into next season.”
