Personal thoughts: The Mets are also seeking a second opinion, but it sounds to me like a 15-day trip to the DL is likely for Wright. With the mediocre way he’s played so far this season, I don’t think this is the worst thing in the world. Hopefully he can come back hot.
Sandy Alderson media address (all quotes below thanks to Adam Rubin):
“David Wright examined at Hospital for Special Surgery to look at back. Stress fracture in lower back.”
“Diving play at third base involving Houston’s Carlos Lee in NY is culprit, Alderson says.”
“Alderson said non-surgical. It would be rest for 10 days for stress fracture, then return to baseball activity.”
“”We’re not talking about something long term,” Alderson said.”
David Wright was taken out of the lineup today in the first of a two-game series with the Marlins. Wright has struggled thus far this season, putting up an OPS of only .741. Rumors have circled Mets-nation regarding a possible back and/or neck injury David’s been playing through.
