PHILADELPHIA (AP) David Wright was out of the lineup for the third straight game because of a broken right pinkie.
The New York Mets third baseman was cleared to play by a hand specialist Thursday, but Justin Turner was in Wright's No. 3 spot in the lineup and playing third base for Friday night's game against the Phillies.
Wright sat out games Tuesday and Wednesday after learning he broke his finger diving back to a base Monday night.
The Mets were 4-0 before Wright sat out two straight losses. He is hitting .583 (7 for 12) with a homer and four RBIs.
Magic Johnson was front and center for the #Dodgers' season opener. Do the #Padres have hero envy? @TBrownYahoo http://t.co/E6KH7Eyg #MLB
Bryce Harper doubled in his first Triple-A at-bat and went 2 for 4 with a stolen base for Syracuse. http://t.co/xXyI3xBN #MLB #Nationals
Too early to panic? Maybe not in Boston, where the ninth inning could be a problem for Bobby Valentine. http://t.co/eqHkWeLP #MLB #RedSox
