by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

"When your shoulder is hurt, it's really tough," Johnson told Metsblog. "It's hurt in his left shoulder and that's where your swing starts, with your left side, your left hand getting to the ball. It's been tough because he's been trying to play through that. It's just been a real tough haul because it's hard to get a consistent swing when you're in pain."


Wright, who is also dealing with a neck injury that forced him out of Sunday's game, has struggled mightily recently. He has just eight home runs on the season. He is in the midst of a 143 at-bat homerless streak currently, but has maintained that the shoulder is not an issue.

Manager: Power has not left the bat of David Wright


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Terry Collins has claimed that the power outage that has plagued Mets star David Wright does not translate into a permanent inability to hit home runs.

The third baseman slugged .514 last season, but is down to .383 in 2014, more than 100 points under his career mark. The numbers are disturbing considering Wright is in the second year of an eight-year contract worth $138 million. He has just eight home runs in 112 games this season, but general manager Sandy Alderson and Collins are maintaining their optimism, at least publicly.

"It would be way premature to generalize what's going to happen into the future based on this season," Alderson told Newsday. "The last couple of years he's been outstanding.

Collins concurred.

"Do I think the power's going to come back?" he asked. "I don't know that it's gone anywhere. His swing got a little long I think, maybe due to the fact that his shoulder bothered him a little bit earlier. I think he's fine now."

Wright owns an 11-game hitting streak, but all but one of the 13 hits during that stretch has been a single.
