NEW YORK — The latest chapter in the saga of David Wright‘s neck injury unfolded Monday.
Two days after Wright and Mets general manager Sandy Alderson voiced concerns about the injury, manager Terry Collins said that he is worried it could land the third baseman on the disabled list.
“I’m concerned about David Wright possibly going on the DL at some point,” Collins said. “We won’t know more until later today or tomorrow, but the condition he’s been playing in and the condition he’s in right now — yeah, I’m concerned about it.”
Wright missed his third straight game when the Mets opened a three-game series against the White Sox on Monday.
“This guy plays with a lot of discomfort,” Collins said. “He always has, so when he can’t play, he’s hurt.”
Before the injury, Wright had homered in each of his last three games and hit in six straight games, going 6-for-24 (.250) over that span. In 37 games this season, he is batting .226 (31-for-137) with seven home runs and 14 RBIs. (mlb.com)
After a wonderful year for the Mets, nothing is going “right” for them this season. Whether its their pitching or offense, Mets keep running into numerous problems.
