Terry Collins says that David Wright will be ready for Opening Day

David Wright has been shut down with an intercostal strain and was expected to miss several weeks, including Opening Day. Terry Collins is more optimistic than that, however, with Mike Puma of the New York Post reporting that Collins is “confident” that Wright will be ready for Opening Day.

Obviously it’s more important that he’s around and available for the bulk of the season, but if things are looking good now that’s a good sign.  Bigger question: will the time off cool down Wright, who was absolutely raking when he went down with the injury during the WBC?
