Wright out of lineup with soreness on his left side

Mets third baseman David Wright was scratched from the lineup for the intrasquad game on Saturday because of soreness on his left side.

The Mets say he has stiffness near his ribcage and will be replaced by Zach Lutz in the lineup.

Wright says he understands the decision to sit out, noting "if it was a real game, obviously I would be playing. But they wanted to try to take it slow, especially this early in the spring."

Wright felt stiffness on Monday and was limited in workouts early in the week.

Mets manager Terry Collins says it's more important for Wright to be healthy for the Mets Grapefruit League opener against the Washington Nationals on Monday night.

Mets Work Out: Matt Harvey Pitches BP to Mets Regulars, Lucas Duda puts on a Home Run Display on Field 7 (Mini Citi Field)

According to Andy McCullough of, The Mets spring training highlights of the day occurred on Field 7 (Mini-Citi-Field), where Matt Harvey threw another session of live batting practice.

He faced a group of regulars – David Wright, Jason Bay, Ike Davis, Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda – but all appeared to be just tracking the baseball. Harvey did plunk Duda in the right leg with an off-speed pitch, but Duda reported no ill will or injured limbs.

Lucas Duda proceeded to detonate baseballs during regular BP. Dozens of baseballs cleared the moved-in fences.

McCullough says that even though it is just batting practice, Duda has been the star of camp thus far. Team officials are almost giddy about his potential for this coming year, especially considering his .957 OPS in the second half of last season.

“Really fun to watch,” catcher Mike Nickeas said Duda finished up his session.

“Unless you’re the opposing pitcher,” Ike Davis cracked.
