Ike Davis, who landed on the disabled list May 12 with a left ankle injury, has not yet started running and has not resumed baseball activities, according to Terry Collins. That appears to make Davis' planned return when he is eligible to be activated in six days a tad optimistic.

"He did all his basic exercises today," Collins said. "He doing all of his rehab stuff in the pools down in St. Lucie. I would imagine it's a few more days before he gets on the field."

The closest Davis has done to baseball activities is swinging a bat without facing any pitching.

"He hasn't run yet at all," Collins said.
