Mets' David Wright hopes to be cleared for light activities Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright (hamstring) hopes that he'll be cleared to resume light physical activities by Friday morning or Saturday at the latest, MLB.com reports.

Wright received a cortisone shot in his leg that left him unable to jog, lift weights or do any exercises in his normal routine Thursday, so he spend the day preparing mentally as if he were starting Thursday night, studying video of Marlins starter Jarred Cosart and attending the hitters' meeting.

"I still try to go through my day with something productive and at least have some sort of routine," Wright said. "I try to stay somewhat involved, at least mentally." He laughed. "But I'm still bored out of my mind."

The Mets expect Wright to miss two-to-three weeks with the injury.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

He will rest for two days and will resume baseball actives as tolerated. Manager Terry Collins said the diagnosis was "a little better than expected," and remains hopeful that Wright is only out a minimum of two weeks, per Newsday and ESPN. General Manager Sandy Alderson said three weeks is more of a realistic estimate for his return.

Wright held a .333 batting average (11 for 33) with a home run, four RBI and two stolen bases in eight games.


Report: Mets' David Wright likely headed to the disabled list


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright is likely headed to the disabled list with a pulled right hamstring, reports ESPN. Wright suffered the injury while sliding into second base on a stolen base attempt late in Tuesday's game against Philadelphia. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday to determine the extent of the injury.

"A couple of feet before the bag I just felt my hamstring grab," Wright said. "I thought it might be something that I could stretch out a little bit. But then I took a couple of secondary leads and just realized that if the ball was put in play I wouldn't have been able to do anything positive, that's for sure. It took a couple a pitches and it didn't get any better. That's when I thought I'd rather say something and hopefully catch this thing before I make the same mistake I made a couple of years ago, when I tried to play through it and made it worse.

"Anytime you feel something like that, you hope that it goes away. And this just didn't go away."

Eric Campbell from Triple-A Las Vegas appears to be the likely replacement if Wright lands on the DL.


Mets third baseman David Wright leaves with a right hamstring injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright left Tuesday's game against the Phillies with aright hamstring pull after sliding into second base, reports MLB.com.

Wright slid into second when trying to steal the base and came up lame, needing medical attention. Wright stayed in for a few more pitches before heading back to the locker room for further evaluation.

"That's a major problem," manager Terry Collins said.

Wright said after the game he took the cautious approach instead of taking the risk and playing through the injury. He felt his hamstring grab a few steps before he made it to second base.

He will have an MRI Wednesday and the team will bring Eric Campbell to New York in the event a roster spot opens up, the team announced.

Wright went 2 for 5 before leaving the game.

Mets' Collins on David Wright: 'Our third baseman is back'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright put together a pretty good performance at the plate this spring, batting .291 with a .545 slugging percentage, two doubles, four home runs, seven runs and 12 RBI in 20 games. 

His spring performance could be a good indication the Mets' star third baseman is ready to bounce back after a down season in 2014, in which he hit just .269 with eight home runs. Apparently, Wright has at least convinced manager Terry Collins he has found his form.

“Our third baseman is back,’’ Collins told the New York Post of Wright, who was greatly impacted by a shoulder injury last season. “You’re looking at his presence in the middle of that lineup changes the lineup. That’s big."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Wright is batting .303 (10 for 33) with one double and 10 RBI in 12 spring games.


Mets' Long feels David Wright can restore power swing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) David Wright, who was bothered by a left shoulder injury in 2014, provided the team and Mets fans with an encouraging sight Saturday when his first spring home run cleared the batter's eye in center field at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie, Fla., which is 410 feet away from home plate.

"It's always fun to hit a home run," Wright said, per the Associated Press. "It's good, especially this early in spring, to make good contact and get good results. When you see the results from work, it's fulfilling and nice."

Mets hitting coach Kevin Long was also pleased to see the team's star third baseman getting his confidence back after a down year in 2014.

“That ball he hit was impressive,” Long said, per the New York Post. “If he hits a couple more like that, he should be off and running.”

Long, who is in his first year with the Mets, said he went back to look at some old tape of Wright from 2006, when he was in midst of a power surge that saw him regularly hit more than 20 home runs and slug better than .500.

“We’re just trying to get that muscle-memory back again,” Long said. “If he stays healthy, there’s no reason he can’t have that kind of power.”


David Wright absent from Mets due to personal issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

David Wright apologizes for scolding prospect in front of media


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright apologized to prospect Noah Syndergaard on Wednesday for scolding him Tuesday "within earshot" of the press, according to the New York Daily News.

However, Wright was not apologetic about the message he delivered to the highly touted pitching prosect.

"I talked to Noah yesterday, that's the thing I apologized to him for not realizing that obviously I choose to do it, so it's not the media's fault by any means, but I didn't notice the media was within earshot. So that's what I apologized to Noah for," Wright said.

"Now he has to answer questions, I have to answer questions, (Mets manager) Terry (Collins) has to answer questions, that's not the way that I like to handle things. I wasn't aware of my surroundings. As far as the content of it, I think that's something that I think Noah did an excellent job understanding the situation, he was very remorseful of the situation."

On Tuesday, Wright and reliever Bobby Parnell were upset Syndergaard went into the clubhouse to eat lunch while the Mets were in the middle of an intrasquad game. Wright told Syndergaard he needed to be on the bench during the game, but Parnell went one step further by throwing out the plate of food Syndergaard was eating.

Syndergaard, who added staying in the clubhouse was "straight up" ignorance on his part, said Wright has spoken to him twice since the incident.

"He wanted to make sure I knew that Bobby (Parnell) and he were not picking on me," Syndergaard said Wednesday. "He just wanted to make it clear, they care about me, they want me to be a part of the team, they think I can contribute in the future."

Mets' David Wright feeling good about his shoulder


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright is feeling good about his shoulder, according to MLB.com.

Wright participated in an intrasquad game on Tuesday. It was the first game action Wright has seen since being shut down with a shoulder issue last season. Following the game, Wright said he felt healthy. "It felt great," Wright said. "I felt like every other spring training, which is obviously the goal coming into this."

The 32-year-old hit .269/.324/.374 over 535 at-bats last season. 


David Wright has harsh exchange with prospect Noah Syndergaard


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright had a harsh exchange with starting pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard for not being on the bench during the club's intrasquad game on Tuesday, per the New York Daily News.

Syndergaard was eating lunch in the clubhouse while the intrasquad game was taking place. As soon as the intrasquad game was over, Wright confronted Syndergaard and reporters heard the third baseman use the word "bench" at least twice during the exchange. Wright declined to address the incident to the media.

"If there is a young player that is here (in major-league camp) there is a reason, they have talent and potential," Wright said. "I would encourage them to use this chance to take every opportunity to learn from it. If you are a young pitcher, you can learn from sitting in with meetings with Dan (Warthen) or watching a Zack Wheeler, who I know is young, but he has experience.

"That's what I think all young players should be doing," Wright said. "That's all."

Syndergaard, who is in his first big-league camp, told Marc Carig of Newsday that he took it as a teaching moment, and that Wright was clear and "made his point."

"I really wasn't expecting it to be that big of a deal," Syndergaard said.

Mets' David Wright will avoid head-first slides


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright knows he is unlikely to play in all 162 games this season. To help him play in as many games as possible, Wright said he will no longer slide head-first, reports MLB.com.

In 2014, Wright dealt with a shoulder issue, but he would't offer that as an excuse for his lack of home runs, reports the New York Post.

"It's kind of easy to use the shoulder as an excuse, but if I'm in the game I expect to perform," he said.

Wright added he won't argue if manager Terry Collins wants him to take a day or two off to rest.


David Wright cleared for full participation with Mets


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Wright had a career low eight home runs and .269 average for the Mets last year, and his season was cut short by ligament damage in the shoulder. Wright avoided surgery in the offseason. 


Mets' Cuddyer on Wright: 'I see that spark in him again this offseason'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) New Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer has spent some time this offseason working out with third baseman David Wright. Cuddyer said he has seen a much improved Wright from the last time he saw him during a series against the Rockies in September, when Wright was plagued by a shoulder injury.

"I see that spark in him again this offseason," Cuddyer said, per NJ.com. "I see that enthusiasm, that excitement and the strength. He looks strong right now, which is good to see."

Wright, whose injury was diagnosed as a rotator cuff contusion, failed to make the All-Star team last season for just the second time since 2006. He hit .269 with a career-low eight home runs in 134 games. Wright even had 14 home runs in 69 games as a rookie in 2004.


Wright: 'I'm 100 percent confident I will be physically ready to go'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright, who was plagued by a left shoulder injury for a good portion of the 2014 season, is swinging a bat again pain-free and is happy with the progress he is making after missing the final weeks of the season.

"I feel really good," Wright told the New York Post. "I’m 100 percent confident that I will be physically ready to go."

Wright, whose injury was diagnosed as a rotator cuff contusion, failed to make the All-Star team last season for just the second time since 2006. He hit .269 with a career-low eight home runs in 134 games. Wright even had 14 home runs in 69 games as a rookie in 2004.

"For me, personally, last year sucked," Wright said. "When you have a passion for something and you fail at it, I want to make sure that never happens again. If I do what I’m capable of doing, we’re a different lineup.

"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."
