NEW YORK (WFAN) – David Wright’s spring debut will have to wait longer than expected.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday that the All-Star likely won’t see any Grapefruit League action this week. Wright is considered day to day with soreness around his left ribcage.

“We always adjust, but I don’t see him playing until the start of next week,” said Collins, “at the earliest.”

The Mets are playing it safe with Wright, who missed another exhibition game Tuesday.

The third baseman instead powered through an “intense” session in the weight room, Collins said.

“We’ll see when they’re going to let him back on the field,” Collins told reporters. “He said there’s no pain at all, no discomfort at all, so those are all great signs. And he admitted, he told me today, ‘I think it was really a good move that we slowed this down.'”

Wright downplayed the injury Sunday.

“If this was opening day, I’d be playing 100 percent,” he said.
