Duda, Ike ready to get in swing

By Adam Rubin

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Lucas Duda said he is prepared to serve as designated hitter in a minor-league game Friday. That will mark his first game action since injuring his left hamstring in a Grapefruit League game on March 3.

Ike Davis (calf) also should participate in some fashion, although that likely will not include running after contact.
