Mets Spring Training 2012: David Wright Out Another Week

According to D.J. Short of HardBallTalk, New York Mets third baseman, David Wright, will not make his spring training debut for at least another week, as he nurses a rib cage injury.

... Mets manager Terry Collins said this afternoon that Wright won't play until next weekend at the earliest and is scheduled to see a doctor Monday. His doctor visit was previously scheduled, so there's no indication that he has suffered any sort of setback.

The 29 year old Wright is coming off his arguably his worst season as a pro, accumulating a WAR of just 1.9. Wright's average was a career-low .254, which might have something to do with his career-low BABIP. Wright's career BABIP is .340, but was just .300 last season, which indicates a season of bad luck. A return to the norm could result in a bounce back year from the third baseman.
