Mets third baseman David Wright was slated to continue his rehab assignment with St. Lucie on Wednesday night, but the game was rained out.
He was scheduled to bat third and serve as the DH.
Wright reached base on an error and struck out twice while serving as the DH for St. Lucie on Tuesday night in his first game appearance since May 27, 2016.
"Still quite a bit to go to get to where I want to be, but certainly a good first step," Wright said after the game. "Any time you get a chance to step between the white lines to play some baseball, get some at-bats, it was a lot of fun."
Wright, who could possibly return to the majors this season, according to manager Terry Collins, went 0-for-4 on Tuesday night.
"I've said from Day 1 that my goal would be certainly to make it back to the big club this season," Wright said, "but at this point, [I'm] just looking for baby steps for my health and looking to get better and better," said Wright, who has been on the 60-day disabled list due to a shoulder impingement he suffered in spring training, recently begun throwing and hitting in St. Lucie after he suffered a setback in May.
"Every day is going to be a new challenge for me," Wright said. "There's some hurdles I'm going to have to overcome. ... It's not going to come overnight. I haven't played in over a year, so it's going to be somewhat of a slow process."
In the first inning, he reached on an error when third baseman Kevin Padlo mishandled a grounder. Wright struck out looking in the third inning, struck out swinging in the sixth and popped out to first in the eighth inning.
"Certainly going to want some results here soon ... I felt like I had a couple of good at-bats and a couple of poor at-bats," Wright said, "and that's to be expected."
"Missing as much time as I've missed, you start to fall behind younger, quicker, stronger guys," Wright said. "And something I'm going to need to catch back up. But the biggest thing with me ... I've got some ailments that I need to overcome to be able to go out there and produce. I don't want to come back for the sake of coming back."
Wright, who is on the 60-day disabled list, had been rehabbing in California due to the shoulder impingement he suffered during Spring Training. In May, the team stopped his throwing program after he suffered a setback.
The team's captain has not suited up in a big league game since May 27, 2016, after which he underwent surgery to repair a ruptured disk in his neck. Wright has also battled spinal stenosis, which limited him to just 38 games in 2015, when he hit .289 with a .379 OBP and .434 SLG with five HR and 17 RBI.
During his 13-year career, Wright has hit .296/.376/.491 with 242 HR, 390 doubles, and 970 RBI.
