PHILADELPHIA -- Despite homering for a second straight game since returning from the DL and having no issues with his right hamstring, David Wright said he is not fully back yet.

"I mean, I feel OK," Wright said after the Mets' 5-4, rain-shortened win against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. "I've been lucky getting in some hitters' counts. But still, defensively, I'm not really reacting the way I want to. It's going to take more than two games."

Terry Collins plans to sit Wright on Sunday. Wright said he has accepted Collins' plan of playing Monday and Tuesday in Cincinnati and then again sitting Wednesday.

Wright would not have returned after the delay had the game resumed Saturday.

"I feel about how I expected to -- a little sore, a little stiff -- but for the most part pretty good," Wright said.
