In Saturday’s home game against Miami, the Mets watched Justin Turner, a potential backup for Wright, injure his ankle while fielding a grounder at third base.
“I don’t think we have any more injuries than anybody else. If you look over at other teams, this is the time of year when there are a lot of guys in the training room. It’s not like guys are having setbacks,” Wright said.
“I felt like I was prepared for the tournament. Unfortunately, things like that happen, but it has nothing to do with the tournament itself and everything to do with bad luck.”
