Ike Davis Opens Up About His Valley Fever, or Whatever it Was, Last Year

February 8, 2013

Last year Ike Davis was reported to have valley fever, a fungal infection that sapped his strength and led to him having a horrific start to the season. Of course he downplayed it all. His quote from last March:

“It’s been the same,” said Davis. “Seriously. I feel great. And I don’t have any symptoms of it. I’m not coughing. I’m not throwing up blood. I’m not doing anything. It’s not even hard to breathe. The doctor said I could play, and just don’t get really, really fatigued. So that’s what we’re doing. And if I get really tired, I kind of just step to the side and take a break … I don’t think I have an extreme case.”
