David Wright still targeting Opening Day return
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Newly minted Mets captain David Wright still intends to make it back in time for Opening Day.
Wright, 30, has made slight progress since he was administered a cortisone shot a week ago. After several days of rest, he has started stretching and strength-building exercises for his strained intercostal muscle. He also continues to receive treatment for the ribcage injury.
