Mets’ third baseman David Wright batted two innings in a simulated game Tuesday at Citi Field and faced Mets’ top pitching prospects Justin Dunn and David Peterson.

Wright, 35, did not get a chance to field, however, due to poor field conditions.

The Virginia native plans to meet with COO Jeff Wilpon this week to discuss his plan for the rest of the month.

When asked if he is ready to compete in a big league box, Wright said, “Hopefully. We’ll find out.”

The biggest challenge for the Mets captain will be how his body responds. He will then discuss that with Wilpon when he meets with him.

If he has days of inactivity, he said he would also welcome more sim games.

We will keep you up to date on the status of Wright as more info becomes available.
