Duda ... or Ike set for Grapefruit play

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Terry Collins is not sure which first baseman will be in the New York Mets' Grapefruit League lineup Thursday, after a team off-day. But the manager insisted one of the rehabbing players would appear for the Mets that day.

Neither Ike Davis (calf) nor Lucas Duda (hamstring) has appeared in a Grapefruit League game in more than two weeks.

They have been serving as designated hitters in minor-league games since the weekend, but neither has run after making contact. Their only running has been recent and outside of games.
