Mets 3B David Wright went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly during a minor league game on Thursday (Mar. 17).
He'll make his Grapefruit League debut on Friday against the Washington Nationals, Terry Collins reiterated on Thursday...
Wright also had at-bats in a minor league game on Monday, and has faced live batting practice throughout the spring, but Friday will be his first appearance in a spring training game.
Wright is taking it slow this spring as he works a full camp while dealing with spinal stenosis, which requires extra time stretching and preparing for games. One of the main things Wright and Collins have discussed this month is about the captain not over-exerting during spring games.
Friday's game against the Nationals can be seen on SNY at 6 p.m.
