VIERA, Fla. (AP) — New York Mets third baseman David Wright is expected to miss at least another week because of soreness in his left rib cage.
Mets manager Terry Collins said after Saturday's 8-2 loss to Washington's split squad that Wright wasn't ready to play yet.
Wright has not played in a spring training game this year. The All-Star third baseman has taken groundballs, but has not thrown or swung a bat.
Mets team doctor Struan Coleman will travel to the Mets' complex in Port St. Lucie to examine Wright and determine the next course of action.
