|David Wright: Shoulder problem not reason from slump |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(11:35 am ET) Mets third baseman David Wright has responded to those who believe he has been negatively affected by a left shoulder problem that has plagued him since early summer. He added that it will remain a problem until he receives offseason rest.
Wright, however, refused to blame the ailment for a miserable year at the plate that has resulted in a stat line of ..266/.324/.368 with just eight home runs. He has just three hits in his last 28 at-bats and was forced to sit Tuesday.
"Is [the shoulder] the reason that I'm struggling the way I'm struggling?" Wright asked Newsday. "No. So, I think it's not a reasonable assessment as to why I'm playing poorly."
Wright has also been dealing with an unrelated neck injury.
|Neck issue keeps David Wright out Tuesday |

(8/26/14) 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 |

(8/26/14) 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.

(8/24/14) 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 |

(8/18/14) 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."
|A hamstring injury late in the 2013 season forced David Wright to miss several weeks, limiting him to 112 games. However, when Wright was in the lineup, he came up big for the Mets and Fantasy owners. Wright became a seven-time All-Star last season on his way to batting .307 with a .390 on-base percentage, .514 slugging percentage and .904 OPS. It was the first time in three seasons he finished with a slugging percentage better than .500 and first time in five seasons his OPS was better than .900. He also had 18 home runs, 23 doubles, 58 RBI, 63 runs and 17 stolen bases last season. From a Fantasy standpoint, on a per-game basis, Wright was the second highest-scoring third baseman in Head-to-Head leagues, behind only Miguel Cabrera. Despite missing so much time, Wright still finished with the 12th-highest Fantasy point total among third basemen. You can only imagine what he might have done with more games. Wright continues to be one of the top offensive third baseman in the majors and remains worthy of drafting starting as early as the second round in mixed leagues.
