NEW YORK -- David Wright, who finished last season idle because of looseness in his left shoulder, has been hitting off a tee as well as balls flipped to him.

“It’s still pretty controlled, which is fairly normal for this time of year," Wright told the Post at the Mets' Florida complex. "I feel good. Now it’s just a matter of me trying to get my left shoulder on a par with my right shoulder, just strength-wise. I feel pain free, which is good, feel like the shoulder is healthy, and now it is just a matter of building up that strength.

“In my eyes, I’m not too far behind from where I am normally at this time of year."
