David Wright Scratched from USA-Dominican Republic Game

So I turn on the big USA-Dominican Republic game Thursday night and the first thing I hear is, “No David Wright, but…” It turns out Wright had to be scratched from the game with a sore back.

MLB Network reports it is just precautionary, that Wright is not seriously injured. That’s good news, but I was really looking forward to watching “Captain America” take on Jose Reyes, Robinson Cano and the rest of the powerhouse Dominican team.

I guess I’ll have to be happy by watching Reyes and fellow former Met R.A. Dickey in the game. But they are no substitute for David Wright.

UPDATE:

Later reports say Wright is suffering from sore ribs, not a sore back.
