Mets third baseman J.D. Davis underwent successful surgery on Tuesday to repair a ligament between his middle and ring fingers on his left hand.
Davis spoke to reporters on the field on Oct. 3 prior to the Mets final regular season game against the Atlanta Braves, and discussed his nagging injury.
“I’ve always said that it kind of bothered me, and here and there would flare up,” Davis said. “It is what it is, I tried to gut it out. The team needed me, and I just tried to play games under the circumstance and sometimes I guess it doesn’t come through.”

Davis was placed on the IL on Sept. 26, ending a season in which he played just 73 games while slashing .285/.384/.436 with five homers and 23 RBI.
Over 269 games with the Mets in three seasons, Davis has hit .288 with 33 home runs, 43 doubles, and 99 RBI. He’s currently on a one-year contract and is arbitration eligible through 2024, but his return to New York in 2022 is very much up in the air.
