Mets Today: Wright, Murphy Playing; Davis, Duda Still Sitting

David Wright and Daniel Murphy are scheduled to return to the New York Mets’ lineup this afternoon against St. Louis at Port St. Lucie.

Both experienced strained oblique muscles in previous spring training camps and manager Terry Collins took the approach of easing them into the exhibition schedule.

They each played in an intrasquad game Thursday, with Wright homering against Bartolo Colon.

In addition:

* Neither Ike Davis (both calves) nor Lucas Duda (tight left hamstring) will not play.

* Closer Bobby Parnell, who threw off the mound Thursday, will not be available.

* The instant replay testing will be used.

  1. Wouldn’t it have been amazing, to see diva Davis come into camp in good shape.
    After all, he took the whole last month or more of last season off and didn’t even travel with the team. What is wrong with this guy?
