Mets' David Wright might begin limited baseball activities next week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) The Mets are hopeful third baseman David Wright, who has been sidelined since mid-April due to a back injury, will begin limited baseball activities next week, according to the New York Post.

Manager Terry Collins said he has spoken with Wright in the last few days, and Wright is the most upbeat he’s been “in a long time” as he recovers from spinal stenosis.

Wright is slated to meet with the team later this week in Los Angeles. There is a possibility he will be cleared to begin running and fielding grounders next week. Wright has spent the last month in Los Angeles undergoing physical therapy and consulting with back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins.

If Wright is cleared for baseball activities, then he could be back shortly after the All-Star break.


Mets 3B David Wright still not cleared for baseball activities


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Mets assistant general manager John Ricco said Tuesday he is not aware of Mets third baseman David Wright being cleared to begin baseball activities, reports NJ.com.

Wright is dealing with a back issue, which has kept him sidelined since April 14. General manager Sandy Alderson recently said he hoped Wright could return by the All-Star break.


Alderson: Mets 3B David Wright could be back by All-Star break


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) The pessimism surrounding Mets third baseman David Wright and his ailing back has turned into optimism, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Alderson has claimed that Wright could be recovered enough from his back problem to rejoin the team by the All-Star break, per NJ.com.

Wright has been sidelined for two months, first with a hamstring problem before experiencing limbar spinal stenosis. The uncertainty in regard to a timetable for his return has had the Mets considering a trade for a new third baseman.


Alderson indicating pessimism about return of 3B David Wright


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson is apparently no longer banking on the return of third baseman David Wright, who has been sidelined with back issues since mid-April. He is so concerned that he has admitted that he will be willing to trade for a player who can only man that position.

"Would we consider a third baseman who can't do anything else?" Alderson asked Newsday. "Under the circumstances, yeah, we probably would. But we're not just looking for any third baseman. It has to be something we think is an improvement that doesn't cost us significantly."

Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez has surfaced as a possibility. But CBSSports.com Insider Jon Heyman has reported that the Mets don't consider him an ideal fit.


Mets' David Wright (back) unsure when he'll return this season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright said Tuesday that he will play again in 2015, but he's not sure when, reports MLB.com.

"We're not just talking about playing baseball," Wright said. "We're talking about walking and standing and being pain free."

Wright has been sidelined since April 14 with a back issue. He said he wants to avoid having back surgery, but he is currently taking it week to week.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said the team is looking for help, but they intend to keep Wright as their primary third baseman, reports NJ.com.

"We're not looking for his replacement," Alderson said.


David Wright's status could affect Daniel Murphy's position


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Mets infielder Daniel Murphy has remained mostly at second base while third baseman David Wright has been sidelined, and manager Terry Collins spoke Tuesday on the decision to keep Murphy at second while Ruben Tejada has manned third base in recent games.

"You're talking about a guy we've already danced him around twice," Collins said of Murphy, per The Star-Ledger. "Put him there, now moving him back to second base again. He's established himself as a second baseman here. I just don't think you take one of your best players – who, right now, is swinging a bat as well as he did – and add another dimension to his game. Let him be comfortable. You guys can handle anything. These guys, they like to know what's going on."

Collins did acknowledge that Murphy could be shifted to third base once the team has more clarity on the outlook of Wright, who is expected to rejoin the team on Tuesday. The Mets hope to know more about the timetable related with the third baseman's back injury soon.

"We've got to see where David's going to be," Collins said. "Is he going to be 10 days, two weeks, two months – I don't know. If it's going to be a lengthy period of time we'll certainly revisit what our best alignment is. Right now, I don't like moving guys around. I think they should come and know where they're playing and get ready to play there. Because you gotta include Dan Murphy. I think Dan Murphy is the best third baseman on this team outside of David Wright. We gotta re-evaluate where we are and that will not be determined until we know what David's status is going to be."


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."


Report: Mets have insurance on David Wright's contract


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) If Mets third baseman David Wright misses 60 games this season, the team would recoup 75 percent of his contract while he is unable to play, sources told FoxSports.

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.


GM: Mets 3B David Wright seeing spine specialist


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) The trip to the Watkins Spine Clinic in California does not mean that Mets third baseman David Wright is destined for surgery, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Wright, who was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, will be evaluated by therapists and participate in a three-phase rehab program. There are no plans for him to go under the knife. But that doesn't mean it has been ruled out for good.

"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.
