Mets | David Wright optimistic

New York Mets 3B David Wright (intercostal) went 1-for-5 as the designated hitter in minor league action Tuesday, March 26, his first game action since March 12 in the World Baseball Classic. He is expected to play in another minor league game Thursday, March 28. "I've been optimistic about opening day since I came back to St. Lucie and I talked with the doctors and the trainers about the diagnosis. As I said yesterday, it's kind of the same thing today: It's another step closer. I'm still very optimistic," Wright said.

Fantasy Tip: You should be optimistic as well, especially since he would be able to have a DL stint backdated to begin the season if need be. Take advantage of this in drafts if Wright falls on the board.
