Wright could see game action in Minors soon

NEW YORK -- Mets third baseman David Wright continues to make tangible progress rehabbing from the spinal condition that has sidelined him since April. Wright will travel to Miami with the Mets on Sunday night, then drive to Port St. Lucie, Fla., on Thursday with an eye toward beginning a Minor League rehab assignment shortly thereafter.

Wright, 32, has not played since April 14 due to a hamstring injury and his subsequent spinal stenosis diagnosis. He was batting .333 in eight games prior to that.

The still-DL'd third baseman rejoined the Mets in New York this week after months spent rehabbing and receiving treatment in California, and he has been performing a full range of baseball activities on a near-daily basis. Game action will be his next significant step toward a return.
