Neck issue keeps David Wright out Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Braves, due to ongoing issues with his neck.

Wright originally left Sunday's game with muscle spasms in the neck, and Monday's team off-day was not enough to get him back to full health. He remains day to day at this point.


Shoulder still hampering David Wright


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014)  Mets third baseman David Wright is still dealing with issues with his left shoulder, hitting coach Lamar Johnson admitted to the New York Daily News Monday.

"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.

Wright injured the shoulder in June and has tried to find his swing since. The extent of the neck injury is not yet known. 


David Wright exits game with neck muscle spasm


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright was removed from Sunday's game due to a muscle spasm on the side of his neck, the team announced.

Wright dealt with shoulder soreness last weekend before developing the new injury Sunday. He went 1 for 2 for a run scored before exiting. Wright has hit .266/.324/.368 with eight home runs, 56 RBI and six stolen bases in 489 at-bats.


David Wright makes it into lineup Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright returned to the starting lineup Monday against the Cubs after missing one game due to shoulder soreness.

Manager Terry Collins indicated Sunday Wright might miss multiple games, but the veteran third baseman bounced back quickly after leaving Saturday's game.

"If the injury is going to cause him to not help us, then we're making a mistake by putting him in there, but we don't know until he's in there," Collins said, per MLB.com. "Right now, he says he feels pretty good. ... I'm not worried about David Wright telling me the truth."


Shoulder injury keeps David Wright sidelined Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright was held out of the starting lineup Sunday against the Cubs after leaving Saturday's game due to shoulder soreness. Eric Campbell started at third base Sunday for New York.

David Wright exits game Saturday with shoulder soreness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright was removed from Saturday's game against the Cubs with left shoulder soreness, the team announced.

Wright was hit by a pitch in the sixth inning but stayed in to run the bases. He didn't take the field with the team in the next half-inning. Wright finished the game 0 for 2 with a run scored, and he owns a .273/.331/.380 line with eight home runs and 56 RBI in 466 at-bats.


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.


Manager concerned about David Wright's struggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Since returning to the lineup July 5 after missing seven straight starts due to a shoulder injury, Mets third baseman David Wright is batting just .247 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 24 games. 

His recent struggles offensively has become a cause for concern for manager Terry Collins, per the New York Daily News.

"I saw him in San Diego and he said he felt great, so I haven’t really gotten into it much, but ya know there’s certainly no telling," Collins said. "It could be bothering him a little bit. I’m concerned with the fact that he’s not hitting. I’m not sure about the physical side."


David Wright gets planned cortisone injection for shoulder


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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."

I felt like it was prohibiting me from doing certain things on a baseball field."
