CHICAGO -- Terry Collins suggested Thursday in Colorado is the likely day he will select to give David Wright a game off.

Wright has started all but one game this season, and has appeared in every game.

Daniel Murphy gets a day off today, which Collins timed for when the Mets are facing tough lefty Chris Sale. Murphy is hitting .195 in June.

Lefty batters are hitting .111 (7-for-63) against Sale this season.
