Terry Collins, Mets Playing It Safe With David Wright’s Rib Cage

NEW YORK (WFAN) — The Mets aren’t in a rush for David Wright to make his spring debut.

The All-Star third baseman sat out Monday night’s loss to the Nationals with soreness around his left ribcage. He’s considered day to day.

Mets manager Terry Collins ruled him out for Tuesday’s contest, and wouldn’t speculate when Wright may be ready for in-game action.

“He’s very, very aware that if he goes down for three weeks, we’ve got problems,” said Collins.

Wright worked out indoors Monday, according to the Bergen Record, focusing on “functional exercises instead of baseball activities.”

“The only way to get over those things is rest,” Collins said. “He’s just got to back off some stuff.”

Scott Hairston also injured his left oblique over the weekend.

“In light of Scotty … I think it opened up my eyes,” Wright said Sunday. “You hate to see a guy go down, but it’d be worse if two guys go down.”

Do you think this will be a lingering issue for Wright? Sound off below…
