DENVER -- The New York Mets are sending first baseman Ike Davis to New York to get an MRI on what initially is being labeled a strained left calf.

Davis rolled his ankle in a collision with third baseman David Wright during Tuesday night's 4-3 win against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. He departed the game after the inning's completion.

"I don't feel like it's that bad," Davis said Wednesday. "You've got to take precautions, I guess.

"I feel like I could play in a couple of days. I don't think there's anything torn. It would hurt more if there was something torn, I feel. It's a little sore, but the day after it's usually a little sore."

Wednesday's game was rained out, but manager Terry Collins had no plans to use Davis in the series finale, which will be made up Thursday. Davis was wearing a protective boot after Tuesday's game.
