J.D. Davis will return to the Mets' lineup on Sunday, manager Luis Rojas announced after Saturday's spring training loss to the Nationals.
Davis, who Rojas said will get the nod out in left field against the Astros, hasn't played for the Mets since injuring his shoulder on Feb. 25 in a game against the Tigers. He jammed his shoulder while diving for a ball, but the MRI revealed there was no new damage to the area.
Now with nearly two weeks of rest, the 2019 breakout star will return to the lineup and try to continue the tear he was on last season.
In 2019, Davis slashed .307/.369/.527 with 22 home runs and 57 RBI over 453 plate appearances.
