It was announced yesterday that David Wright would move his rehab assignment from Single-A St. Lucie to Triple-A Las Vegas.

That started last night for the captain as he went 1-for-4 with a broken-bat single while scoring a run and playing nine innings at the hot corner. In addition to that, he made one of his famous barehanded plays on a slow roller down the third base line.

Wright, 35, appeared in 10 games for St. Lucie before this, going 6-for-32 with two RBI and two walks. However, he started 0-for-14, meaning he was 6-for-his-last-18 (.333) before the promotion.

John Ricco, however, said it is unlikely that he will return this year as he has not reached some of their pre-determined milestones that he needed to achieve to do so in their eyes.

The Virginia native has not played in an MLB game since 2016 as he has dealt with spinal stenosis along with various other neck and back injuries.
