Mets' Long feels David Wright can restore power swing
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

David Wright, who was bothered by a left shoulder injury in 2014, provided the team and Mets fans with an encouraging sight Saturday when his first spring home run cleared the batter's eye in center field at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie, Fla., which is 410 feet away from home plate.

"It's always fun to hit a home run," Wright said, per the Associated Press. "It's good, especially this early in spring, to make good contact and get good results. When you see the results from work, it's fulfilling and nice."

Mets hitting coach Kevin Long was also pleased to see the team's star third baseman getting his confidence back after a down year in 2014.

“That ball he hit was impressive,” Long said, per the New York Post. “If he hits a couple more like that, he should be off and running.”

Long, who is in his first year with the Mets, said he went back to look at some old tape of Wright from 2006, when he was in midst of a power surge that saw him regularly hit more than 20 home runs and slug better than .500.

“We’re just trying to get that muscle-memory back again,” Long said. “If he stays healthy, there’s no reason he can’t have that kind of power.”

David Wright apologizes for scolding prospect in front of media
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets third baseman David Wright apologized to prospect Noah Syndergaard on Wednesday for scolding him Tuesday "within earshot" of the press, according to the New York Daily News.

However, Wright was not apologetic about the message he delivered to the highly touted pitching prosect.

"I talked to Noah yesterday, that's the thing I apologized to him for not realizing that obviously I choose to do it, so it's not the media's fault by any means, but I didn't notice the media was within earshot. So that's what I apologized to Noah for," Wright said.

"Now he has to answer questions, I have to answer questions, (Mets manager) Terry (Collins) has to answer questions, that's not the way that I like to handle things. I wasn't aware of my surroundings. As far as the content of it, I think that's something that I think Noah did an excellent job understanding the situation, he was very remorseful of the situation."

On Tuesday, Wright and reliever Bobby Parnell were upset Syndergaard went into the clubhouse to eat lunch while the Mets were in the middle of an intrasquad game. Wright told Syndergaard he needed to be on the bench during the game, but Parnell went one step further by throwing out the plate of food Syndergaard was eating.

Syndergaard, who added staying in the clubhouse was "straight up" ignorance on his part, said Wright has spoken to him twice since the incident.

"He wanted to make sure I knew that Bobby (Parnell) and he were not picking on me," Syndergaard said Wednesday. "He just wanted to make it clear, they care about me, they want me to be a part of the team, they think I can contribute in the future."
