Ike Davis has just one hit in his first three games. Though it's early, the first baseman has already taken steps toward a turnaround, Mets manager Terry Collins said on Friday.

"It was addressed yesterday a little bit," Collins said of Davis, who is 1-for-12 to start the year. "We were going to take some extra BP today. We did it in the cage for quite awhile and Ike was the first guy there today. So, one thing about it, he's not satisfied with the way he's started and he's trying to do something about it."

Davis' only hit of the season was his two-run homer on Wednesday against the Padres.
Last season, Davis didn't collect his first hit of the season until his sixth game,  which served essentially served as a preview for his nightmarish first half.
