David Wright spoke this morning with the media and discussed his injury with some more detail, his approach to dealing with it and Terry Collins frustrations over the Mets injuries.
Here are some of the things Wright says,
- The injury was a tear of a rectus abdominis muscle in his left side and it sounds a lot worse than it is.
- He believes his availability for Opening Day is not in question.
- Regarding Collins frustrations with Met injuries Wright says, “It’s OK to be frustrated. But at the end of the day it’s spring training. You have to err on the side of caution.”

*** Note: In the article Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post is reported to have tweeted that Wright’s injury is the same one that caused Ryan Zimmerman to miss 60 games last season.
