David Wright has been rehabbing at the Mets’ facility in Port St. Lucie Fla. and has encountered a problem: there isn’t any live pitching available. With Single-A St. Lucie’s season over and health problems plaguing a couple rehab coordinators only a trainer is stationed with about a dozen players. So Wright is returning to New York to continue the rehabilitation for the strained hamstring he suffered August 2. “There is nobody down there throwing so he’s not getting done what we hoped he would so he can get it done with us” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “We’ll have a better chance to do the things he wanted to do in Florida that he can in New York.” Collins emphatically declared Wright has not suffered a physical setback. He said he spoke with Wright two days ago and the Mets captain said he was feeling good. The Mets remain hopeful that he will return before the end of the season.
