David Wright, Daniel Murphy get tossed in series finale vs. Angels


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright and second baseman Daniel Murphy were ejected by home plate umpire Toby Basner in the seventh inning against the Angels Sunday for arguing balls and strikes.

Omar Quintanilla took over second base for Murphy while Josh Satin shifted to third for Wright. This was Murphy's first career ejection while Wright has been tossed four times already in his career.

Wright finished 1 for 3 with an RBI single in the opening frame, raising his batting average to .229 on the year. Murphy struck out once and went 0 for 3, lowering his batting average to .256 over his first 46 at-bats. He's been held without a hit over his last 10 at-bats.

David Wright won't blame struggles on illness


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright snapped a 0-for-13 slump with a 2-for-4 performance Wednesday against the Braves, raising his season average to .233.

Although Wright was dealing with an illness earlier in the week, he refuses to blame his offensive struggles on not feeling well.

"I am getting some pitches that I should be doing more with than I am," Wright said, per the New York Post. "I’ve gotten in some good situations where I’m just missing pitches or hitting a ball hard, but right at people. Hopefully those start falling in. Once you get a couple of those to fall in, it seems like you can get on a roll a little bit."

Mets manager Terry Collins expects his star player to begin to turn things around on offense.

"This might be the best day he’s felt health-wise in about four," Collins said. "In the years that I’ve been here, you look up at this time of year and this guy is hitting .400, so this is a little bit of a difference for him. But I’m sure he’s been through this before, we’re going to look up at the end of the year and his numbers are going to be David Wright numbers."


David Wright in lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Braves.

Wright has been dealing with the flu, and he was so sick in recent days that the team was unsure if he would be able to play Tuesday, ESPNNewYork.com reports. Wright has opened the season with a .238/.320/.381 line and one home run in 21 at-bats.


David Wright in the lineup Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright is in the starting lineup Sunday.

The team has been cautious to overexert Wright this spring. He played in his first spring game Friday, but was held out of Saturday's game. Wright isn't dealing with any injuries, the team just wants to keep him healthy.

Wright hit .307/.390/.514 in 430 at-bats last season.


David Wright goes hitless in debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright went 0 for 3 in his spring debut Friday as the Mets and Cardinals finished the game tied, 5-5.

"First game everything feels a little awkward," Wright told The Star-Ledger Friday. "It doesn't help all that much that the first guy you face throws 97 (mph). But it's good, it's good to be out there and get the first one under your belt."

Wright wasn't held out before Friday due to injury; rather, the team wanted him to get a later start to help avoid fatigue.


David Wright, Daniel Murphy to make spring debuts Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

David Wright planning to get into a spring game this week


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Wright will play in an intrasquad game Thursday. Manager Terry Collins said he'll try and get Wright into a spring game later this week. Wright isn't dealing with an injury, but the team is limited his workload during spring training.

Wright hit .307/.390/.514 in 430 at-bats last season.


David Wright: Don't rush yourself back, Matt Harvey


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2014) Mets star third baseman David Wright is hoping teammate and promising right-hander Matt Harvey does not rush himself back from Tommy John surgery to try to make an impact in 2014.

"He's impatient like me," Wright told MLB Network Radio. "We're going to need Matt for the long-term; we have to be patient."

The loss of Harvey is a huge blow for the Mets. He was the talk of the town last season with a 9-5 record and brilliant 2.27 ERA with 191 strikeouts in 178 1/3 innings before going down.

Harvey is expected to miss the entire season.


David Wright adapts offseason workout plan


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright adjusted his offseason workout plan in order to try and stay on the field this season, according to the Star-Ledger.

"Usually in the offseason you go out there, you try to get bigger, fasters stronger," Wright said. I’ve realized that with the hamstring, the lower back thing that I had, some flexibility needs to be incorporated, some kind of, the philosophy that maybe it’s not always the best way to see how much weight you can lift." 

Wright played in just 112 games last season due to a hamstring injury. He was also limited by back issues. Wright said earlier in his career, he didn't realize it was as important to work on flexibility, but has adjusted due to age. He feels the new plan should help him get through the year. "I think I’ve made a nice adjustment and I’m excited to see how that plays out," he added.

Last season, Wright hit .307/.390/.514 in 430 at-bats.


David Wright defends front office for offseason activity


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2014) Mets star third baseman David Wright can empathize with fans who have complained about a lack of free agent activity from his team, but he understands front office motivation.

"It's easy to give away other people's money," he told Newsday.

The Mets were not stagnant. They signed center fielder Curtis Granderson to a four-year, $60 million deal and veteran starting pitcher Bartolo Colon to a two-year, $20 million contract. But the perception is that they remain far behind Atlanta and Washington in the National League East.


David Wright fine with reduced workload during spring


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins said he will cut back on third baseman David Wright's workload during spring training. The veteran infielder is OK with his manager's decision, according to The New York Post.

"I’m on board with that 100 percent," Wright said. "I had to learn the hard way with these nagging spring training injuries the last few years. I want to stay off the back fields [doing rehab]."


David Wright already getting to work


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright is already at the team's spring training facility, according to ESPN.

Mets position players don't have to report until February 20, but Wright is already in town. Wright typically reports earlier than most players, but is doing some charity events in the area this season. Wright is coming off a solid year, in which he hit .307/.390/.514 in 430 at-bats. He played in just 112 games due to injuries. 


Mets settled on four players entering next season


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) The Mets will approach the offseason with only four players guaranteed prominent roles, according to the New York Daily News

Team COO Jeff Wilpon said the team is "in transition," and that there are only four players projected for the lineup right now. Wilpon cited Jonathon Niese, Dillon Gee, Zack Wheeler and David Wright as the only players who currently have a spot next year. It's safe to assume Matt Harvey is also in that group, but his recent surgery means he'll likely miss most of the year. The team will likely entertain trades for any player not included in that list.
