Worth noting


• Third baseman David Wright (strained left intercostal) returned to Minor League action on Thursday, playing five innings at third base for the first time since the World Baseball Classic. Wright finished 0-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored, telling reporters in Port St. Lucie that he hopes to return to Grapefruit League play on Friday. That would all but ensure that Wright is ready for Opening Day.

• The Mets announced that "Shameless" star Emmy Rossum, a New York City native, will perform the national anthem on Opening Day at Citi Field. Rossum will sing alongside the Scholars' Academy children's choir from Far Rockaway, Queens, as the Mets honor various servicemen and volunteers for their efforts during Hurricane Sandy.
