Mets Spring Training 2012: David Wright Injury Update

After straining an abdominal muscle on his left side, David Wright has been out of action for the New York Mets recently. The good news is Wright doesn't believe he'll miss Opening Day because of this latest issue.

According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, the Mets third baseman should be on the mend after receiving an ultrasound-guided cortisone shot.

Wright knows that now is a time to heal his wounds, not test them.

"As much as I'd like to be out there and play, I also have to realize that it's the first couple weeks in Spring Training," Wright said. "For once in my career, you've got to be smart about something and maybe miss a few games here to make sure I'm ready for the season."

Wright is looking to bounce back from a 2011 season that saw him miss time with a stress fracture in his back. New York needs Wright to be 100 percent if it has any designs on competing in the brutally tough NL East.
