Mets INF/OF J.D. Davis left Tuesday's spring training game against the Tigers in the fifth inning after diving for a ball at third base.
Afterward, Davis stayed down for a few minutes before getting up and departing the game.
Davis was evaluated after the game and initial tests said there was nothing wrong, but an MRI on Wednesday will confirm that.
"There was really no labrum or rotator cuff damage there, but we have an MRI tomorrow so we're going to see if anything," Davis said. "Right now, it's just stiff and a little tender, but taking it day-to-day right now."
He noted the shoulder feeling "dead" as well, but there isn't a large amount of pain.
"Probably like a 2.5/3 out of 10," he said of his pain level. "I've never had a shoulder problem, so I couldn't really tell you."
So far this spring, Davis has been taking plenty of reps at third base (where he is most comfortable) in addition to left field as he prepares for Opening Day.
The expectation has been that Davis will start most games in left field once the regular season starts, with Brandon Nimmo in center, Michael Conforto in right, and Jeff McNeil at third base.
There is also the potential presence of Yoenis Cespedes, who could put a serious dent in Davis' playing time if he's healthy enough to play out there with any regularity.
Any injury to Davis would obviously have ripple effects up and down the Mets' roster.
