Wright time soon, but not Sunday

By Adam Rubin

David Wright continued to work outdoors with teammates as he returns from an abdominal muscle tear. But the third baseman will not make his Grapefruit League on Sunday against the Washington Nationals in Viera, Wright said.

Monday is the earliest date Wright could enter the lineup, but that's a road game at Jupiter. The Mets then have three straight home Grapefruit League games.
