Collins: July 15 return for Wright is 'feasible'
ARLINGTON -- Mets manager Terry Collins plans to spend his All-Star break at the team's Spring Training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla., overseeing David Wright's rehabilitation from a stress fracture in his lower back.

Wright, who began a series of "twisting exercises" Saturday morning in an effort to improve his flexibility and conditioning, plans to begin taking batting practice sometime next week. The Mets cleared him to ramp up his rehabilitation following an examination last Thursday, with the hope that the third baseman can return from the disabled list immediately following the break.

"It's feasible," Collins said of a July 15 return for Wright, who hit the DL on May 16 after playing through his injury for nearly a month. Wright was hitting .226 with six homers in 39 games prior to landing on the disabled list.
