New York Mets 1B Ike Davis (ankle) hasn't tried running to test how his right calf strain has come along. This has delayed the timetable given by Terry Collins, who said Davis could be serving as designated hitter in minor-league play as soon as Thursday, March 13. Davis will test the injury Wednesday.
FANTASY TIP: Regardless, Davis' availability for the start of the season is looking shaky, as he's been wearing a walking boot lately. Lucas Duda could benefit in the short term, or perhaps longer if he proves worthy of the role on his own.

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles is one of the arms competing for the open rotation spot that's likely to occur with Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) injured. Lyles tossed three scoreless innings Tuesday, March 11, with four strikeouts. Lyles holds a 1.13 spring ERA and has made some adjustments with pitching coach Jim Wright. The right-hander has improved the angle on his fastball that may force more ground balls from opponents.
FANTASY TIP: If you have to dive into this SP pool, hold your nose. The competition also involves Franklin Morales and Christian Friedrich. Lyles once had a mildly intriguing pedigree but is in a tough situation to succeed, even with his grounder background. Tread carefully, NL-only poachers.
