The Mets are "quietly preparing" a long-term contract offer for David Wright, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal, though that may not come any time soon. Wright said in Spring Training that he would not address his contract status during the season, and no Mets official has commented on the report. The team holds a $16 million option on Wright's contract for 2013.
Catcher Rob Johnson was nursing a sore left thumb Monday, after taking a foul tip off the digit during Sunday's game. The Mets are already playing without starting catcher Josh Thole, who suffered a concussion last week in Philadelphia and has been resting at his home since.
First baseman Ike Davis was back in the starting lineup Monday, one day after sitting out with flu-like symptoms. Davis believes his illness may have been due to food poisoning, and not the flu bug that has been going around the Mets' clubhouse in recent weeks.
