According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Wright is just soft tossing for now, but as the days go by he will slowly begin to get further through his rehab program.
Five weeks ago Wright was forced to stop throwing due to him having issues throwing the ball in spring training camp. This is good news for Wright considering he has not been cleared to even pick up a baseball since then.
Injuries are what have been holding the right-hander back within the past few years which include serious neck and back issues which kept him out of action for the majority of the 2016 season.
While this is a step in the right direction for Wright, he still has ways to go before he is able to once again set his cleats on the grass of Citi Field.
