PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Ailing Mets third baseman David Wright will return to New York to have his sore rib cage examined.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday said he expects Wright will receive a cortisone shot. Wright will be checked Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Wright has not played in an exhibition game this year. On Saturday, manager Terry Collins said Wright would be out for at least another week.

Wright has fielded groundballs this spring, but has not thrown or swung a bat.

Alderson said pitcher Tim Byrdak also would go to New York and likely get a cortisone shot for his sore left knee.
