David Wright gave it a go and will be in the lineup this afternoon at Philadelphia. For five days Terry Collins expressed optimism Wright would be able to play, but also admitted the DL was a possibility.
There is a risk to Wright playing today, which is if Wright aggravates the injury and does go on the DL the Mets would have lost five days in the process.
If his pinkie feels better today, it would probably improve over the next couple of days. I believe the Mets are taking a risk.
Here’s today’s lineup:
Ruben Tejada, ss
Daniel Murphy, 2b
