David Wright cleared for spring training debut Friday

1 Comment

Mets manager Terry Collins announced that third baseman David Wright will make his spring training debut Friday, getting into game action after sitting out to limit his workload so far.

Wright and the Mets are trying to figure out how to keep him healthy and productive while dealing with spinal stenosis, so he’s expected to take things easy throughout spring training and then receive regular days off during the season.

For now every indication is that Wright will be ready for Opening Day and he’s been getting recent work in intrasquad games.
