David Wright’s first at-bat in additional than two years lasted one pitch.
The 35-year-old Mets captain was activated from the disabled listing earlier this week and returned to the sphere as a pinch hitter Friday within the fifth inning of the Mets’ recreation in opposition to the Marlins. He had not appeared in an MLB recreation since Might 2016.
Wright led off the body and grounded out on the primary pitch he noticed from Miami starter Jose Urena.
