Ike, Duda not ready for Grapefruit play

lastname Dudalastname Davis LAKELAND, Fla. -- Terry Collins indicated Saturday afternoon that neither Lucas Duda nor Ike Davis will be ready to return to Grapefruit League action Sunday, when the Mets host the Atlanta Braves.

Davis (calves) hit in Thursday's simulated game but has not appeared in a Grapefruit League game since Sunday. Duda (left hamstring) last appeared in a game Monday.

"I'd rather have them out in the first half of spring training rather than the last half," Sandy Alderson said. "We've got lots of time left."
