Mets’ Wright Says He Expects to Make Opener After Muscle Tear

New York Mets third baseman David Wright said he expects to be ready for the Major League Baseball team’s opening day as he recovers from a torn abdominal muscle.

Wright, 29, told reporters today at the team’s spring training facility in Port St. Lucie, Florida, that he has a strained stomach muscle, or minor tear near his rib cage, team spokesman Jay Horwitz confirmed in an e-mail. Wright said he expects to be ready for the team’s first regular-season game on April 5 at Citi Field against the Atlanta Braves.

Wright has missed the first week of spring training games because of the injury. He received a cortisone shot in New York on March 12, according to ESPN, and Horwitz said there is no timetable for his return to the field.

An All-Star each season from 2006 to 2010, Wright has hit .300 with 183 home runs in his eight-year career spent entirely with the Mets. Last season, he was second on the team in home runs (14) and runs batted in (61), trailing outfielder Carlos Beltran in both categories.
