David Wright not Ready for Opening Day

Postby kaiser » Fri Mar 15, 2013 10:04 pm

Injured wrist in the WBC game. Looks like he won't be able to go to start the season. Unless MLB radio was overreacting today...

Took swings this morning for the first time since the injury. Mets open up on the 1st so he has got a little over a week. What're guys' thoughts?

IMO I would bump him down just slightly, and expect by Mid to late april hopeful return to form.

Yeah, probably going to lean towards taking Ryan Zimmerman over Wright now.

David Wright letting it fly in batting practice this morning. Everything seems to be on track for him for Opening Day. #Mets

like the post above pointed out, he's been throwing, swinging and do all the drills aside from playing in a spring game. He should be fine for opening day as he has had more time thanks to the WBC to get his ABs and work on his swing. As long as he plays 2-3 games before next Monday, all should be good in Mets land and for Wright owners.
