New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) has described his injury as soreness in the left side of his ribs, and he said it had been keeping him awake at night. It's something that he had been feeling for around a week. Wright won't play in the World Baseball Classic Friday, March 15, and it doesn't sound optimistic that he'll be allowed to play if Team USA advances to the semifinals. 2B Justin Turner is the obvious replacement for Wright at third base for the Mets if he's forced to miss the start of the season. INFs Zach Lutz, Brandon Hicks and Brian Bixler also have experience at third base.
Fantasy Tip: Until Wright is tested by the medical staff, we won't know much. If he's forced to sit out a week or so, he could still probably be ready for the start of the season. Turner is more of an NL-only target if Wright is forced to start on the DL.

The New York Mets are expected to shop 2B Justin Turner, according to a source close to the team's plans. Turner could also open the season with Triple-A Las Vegas if he isn't dealt since he has an option remaining. The Mets may want to get INFs Brandon Hicks and Omar Quintanilla on the roster as infielders. INF Zach Lutz could also sneak onto the roster if Turner is dealt. RP Jeremy Hefner appears to be too valuable to risk on waivers, so he looks to be a lock for the 40-man roster.

New York Mets 1B Ike Davis could still be sent to the minors, and manager Terry Collins isn't ruling out using OF Lucas Duda or 2B Daniel Murphy at first as a replacement. Duda has been taking grounders at first. OFs Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Mike Baxter could serve as the corner outfielders against righties if Duda is moved to first base. INFs Jordany Valdespin, Zach Lutz or Josh Satin could be recalled if Davis is demoted.
