This morning at Tradition Field, David Wright participated in a full batting practice during pre-game workouts.
It was the first time Wright has hit since he was shutdown during the World Baseball Classic last week.
Wright told reporters he felt no pain during batting practice today, although he is unsure what the next step in his rehab will be.
“Everything seems to be on track for him for Opening Day,” Anthony DiComo of MLB.com said on Twitter.
Yesterday, Sandy Alderson said he believes Wright’s goal of being ready for Opening Day is still realistic, although not a certainty, according to Marc Carig of Newsday.
Wright was diagnosed with a strained intercostal muscle last week and received a cortisone shot at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
