Mets to know more about David Wright's status Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins said third baseman David Wright, who has been diagnosed with a bruised left rotator cuff, will rejoin the team after being re-examined Monday in New York.

However, Collins said a stint on the disabled list remains a possibility for the veteran third baseman, who missed a third straight game Sunday against the Pirates.

"With what they said yesterday, I don' think it's going to happen," Collins said Sunday morning about a potential DL trip, per ESPN. "But he could walk in tomorrow and still have discomfort and they can say, 'Well, you're going to have to rest it longer.' That may lead in a different direction. I'm not planning on that. 

"Tomorrow will have a lot to say. If he's not significantly better due to the rest the last couple of days, then I think we need to talk about the possibility of maybe putting him on the DL."

Report: David Wright to avoid surgery


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright will not require surgery on his injured shoulder, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

Wright has been prescribed rest and anti-inflammatory medication for the shoulder, which caused him to be scratched from Friday's lineup and sent to New York for Saturday's MRI. He first started experiencing discomfort after jamming the shoulder on June 12.

"I would say it's fairly painful," Wright said Friday. "The issue is that these last three weeks I felt like I've been able to be productive and go through normal baseball things without feeling hesitant. [Thursday] night wasn't the case. I felt like it was prohibiting me from doing certain things on a baseball field."

Wright has hit .277/.333/.396 with six home runs and 41 RBI in 321 at-bats.

David Wright powers Mets to narrow victory


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

David Wright expected to be out Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Wright struggled Saturday, picking up one hit and making a big error. "It's more so probably a benching at this point for tomorrow," Wright said. "I think that as much as I'd like to be in there, especially with how we've struggled lately, I think Terry is looking at it more of big picture."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright has not homered since going deep in the season opener March 31 against the Nationals. His homerless streak reached 32 games Wednesday at Miami.

"He's hit some balls at Citi that would have gone [out] anywhere else, I think," hitting coach Dave Hudgens said, per ESPN. "It's just one of those things. I think that's why you play the game. You play 160-something games, and you just keep going and you don't panic. You just keep working. You don't try to do different things or new things or try to do more. I think that's when you run into problems."

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."
