David Wright Has Rib Tear
David Wright has told reporters that he has a small tear in his “rectus abdominis” which is also known as the “six pack”.
He stated that he thought it was a rib cage injury until he had an MRI done, and says that he expects the cortisone shot he had on Monday to take 48 hours to work, which means the injury should improve sometime today.
He says that he should be ready for Opening Day saying, “It’s just a matter of getting back in the swing of things and making sure that I can get back on the field as soon as my body will allow me to, and then get some at-bats.”
Wright has missed all Spring Training Games so far due to the injury.
“There’s no timetable that I have yet,” said Wright, who missed three months with a fractured back a year ago. “It’s a day-by-day thing.”
He expects to begin by hitting off a tee, although he’s not sure when that will start. And he can take ground balls, but not throw, since he still has to stay away from “rotational” motions.
