Mets 3B David Wright made 30 throws from 60-70 feel on a back field at Tradition Field on Sunday for the first time since having season-ending neck surgery last June.
Wright later told reporters that he took it easy and was simply going through the motions today.
"There's still a ways to go before I feel comfortable," he explained. "It's going to take time."
Wright said he believes he'll be ready for Spring Training.
"I think so," he added. "That's the plan, for sure."
He said, based on the rehab plan put in place by his physical therapy team, he will throw every other day and increase the distance each time.
Wright also took batting practice alongside Yoenis Cespedes, Jay Bruce and Curtius Granderson.
In early February, Terry Collins told reporters that Wright will remain at third base for now, though he might get time at first base later in camp.
"If we decide he needs to get some ground balls at first base that stuff can be done late in spring training," Collins said. "He's such a good athlete he'd catch on to that easy.
