The concussion symptoms that sidelined Lucas Duda for the season's final seven games, after a collision with the right-field wall in St. Louis, have cleared and Duda is no longer experiencing headaches or other troubles, assistant GM John Ricco said.

Ike Davis, who opted not to have surgery on his troublesome left ankle, similarly is doing OK, according to GM Sandy Alderson. Davis is at home in Arizona and just doing conditioning work at this point, according to Alderson.

"Right now we think he’s going to be ready to go," Alderson said. "I expect to see him in Arizona in the next couple of weeks because I’ll be out there for the Fall League. Right now we have no reason to believe he won’t be ready."

Duda is projected to start in right field next season, with Davis back at his customary first base.
