Wright received anti-inflammatory injections for his slight tear or strain this week, which trainers believe will help accelerate his recovery.

“Basically what the doctors have told us is he had essentially plateaued — there was a little bit of soreness, not a great deal — but that this will accelerate the recovery process,” GM Sandy Alderson told the New York Daily News.
