Injury update on David Wright…

David Wright 2 home polaroidDavid Wright has begun stretching and strength-building exercises for his strained intercostal muscle, according to Marc Carig of Newsday.

According to Carig, Wright feels that progress has been made in his recovery, although he is proceeding with caution.

However, Wright still believes he can recover in time for Opening Day.


Update – 5:30 PM: Terry Collins told reporters Wright ran, took ground balls, and played catch today, although he did not swing a bat.


Wright was diagnosed with a strained intercostal muscle last week and received a cortisone shot at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
