David Wright arrived on Thursday in Port St. Lucie, well ahead of the Mets' official report date -- Feb. 15 for pitchers and Feb. 20 for position players.

Wright typically arrives early anyway, but this year he is reporting even earlier. He is spearheading a sold-out charity event Super Bowl Sunday to help a St. Lucie Mets employee affected by cancer.

Also already at the team's Florida complex: Bobby Parnell, Anthony Recker, Jenrry Mejia and Andrew Brown.
