Terry Collins announced that 3B David Wright and 2B Daniel Murphy will make their 2014 grapefruit league debuts Friday. The plan has been to keep the two of them out the first week of spring action to avoid getting oblique injuries like last year. Collins believes that the injuries occurred from working too hard early on in camp last year.

Wright and Murphy will be counted on heavily this season as they were last season. Although the two will get some help from incoming free agent Curtis Granderson, the Mets lineup still looks below average.

Collins wanted to give Granderson the first week of the spring off too but the veteran insisted on being out there after missing so much time last season to the disabled list.
