Mets 3B David Wright (back) gets epidural injections on Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/29/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright received epdiural injections on Monday. Wright, who was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, has been seeing a back specialist in California. 

Wright is expected to remain in Los Angeles next week, according to ESPN.com. The team has not provided any further details on his progress, though he does not appear close to returning to his rehab assignment. 

"I know he's feeling a little better," manager Terry Collins said, per the Star-Ledger. "What degree that is, I haven't been able to find out but I hope if he's still out there next week that he can get to San Diego. That'd be fun to have him come down and I think a lot of guys would like to have him in the clubhouse for a while."

Mets' Cuddyer: David Wright experiencing 'frustration of unknown'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer has been exchanging text messages with ailing teammate David Wright lately. And the former can sum up the feelings of the latter with one word.

Frustration.

Wright has spun his wheels in his attempt to return from the disabled list. A diagnosis of lumbar spinal stenosis has him seeing a spine specialist. He appears no closer to coming off the DL now than he did when he was placed on it. There is no timetable - just more examinations and more rest.

"He's frustrated," Cuddyer told NJ.com. "I'm right there with him. We're all frustrated with him. On a personal level it stinks. ... Not knowing [is] tough. Any time it's an indefinite - you don't know. Broken arm, you know six weeks. Hamstring, you know probably three weeks. the back thing with him now, you just don't know. It's the frustration of the unknown."

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has stated that there is no indication that the back injury will limit Wright in the future. But nobody seems to know when that future on the field will begin.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"There comes a time when we have to," Alderson told the New York Daily News. "We should know more in two, three or four more days. Get some more input from Dr. (Robert) Watkins. And his office.

"Until three or four days ago I thought this would be a more temporary situation. But as he has had setbacks, we have to address how to go forward. We are a few days away from knowing what we have to do and hopefully have a more concrete idea of when he will be back."

Wright played in just eight games this season before landing on the disabled list.
