Date:

David Wright homered Monday as the Mets edged the Braves 4-3 in 11 innings.

Wright's homer came in the third. The winning run scored in the 11th when Ruben Tejada singled in Juan Lagares. Wright's homer was his first since June 19 and just his seventh this season. It was a solo shot, and he still hasn't had a multi-RBI game since June 2.
Jul 7 - 11:54 PM

David Wright (shoulder) is in the Mets starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers.

Wright returns after missing seven consecutive games due to a bruised rotator cuff on his right shoulder. Eric Campbell, who handled the bulk of the playing time in his absence, will return to a reserve role.
Jul 5 - 3:39 PM

David Wright (shoulder) is not being placed on the disabled list yet.

There was speculation that he was headed there after he was held out of the lineup again Friday for the seventh straight game. Wright needs to test out his shoulder with some defensive drills, but the rain Friday means he won't be able to try it out until Saturday. The Mets will make a decision at that time whether or not to DL the third baseman.
Jul 4 - 4:10 PM

David Wright (shoulder) remained out of the Mets' lineup on Friday.

The Mets played a man short for a week in anticipation of Wright being ready to play Friday, but obviously he's still not feeling up to it. There's no official word from the club yet, but there would seem to be a good chance of him being placed on the disabled list. Eric Campbell is handling third base again Friday.
Jul 4 - 3:20 PM

David Wright (shoulder) will remain out of the Mets' lineup until at least Friday.

Wright is currently dealing with a bruised right rotator cuff and will rest and receive treatment until the team returns home Friday. The expectation is that he'll be ready to go by then, so the Mets aren't planning on making a DL move.
Jun 30 - 4:04 PM

David Wright (shoulder) is not in the Mets' starting lineup on Monday night versus the Braves.

Wright was diagnosed Saturday with a bruised right rotator cuff and remains day-to-day. The Mets are optimistic that he won't require a disabled list stint. Eric Campbell is manning the hot corner against Atlanta.
Jun 30 - 3:23 PM

David Wright has been diagnosed with a bruised right rotator cuff.

Wright underwent an MRI on his sore left shoulder back in New York on Saturday afternoon. He will be reexamined on Monday, but a disabled list stint is unlikely. The third baseman has a disappointing line of .277/.333/.396 with six home runs and 41 RBI on the season.
Jun 28 - 7:45 PM

David Wright has flown back to New York to undergo an MRI on his left shoulder.

Wright has apparently been dealing with the injury for the past three weeks. He'll undergo the MRI on Saturday in New York, so he doesn't figure to be able to get back to Pittsburgh and in the lineup until Sunday, at the earliest. Obviously, a lot will depend on what the MRI says. Eric Campbell is at third base Friday.
Jun 27 - 5:20 PM

David Wright went 2-for-4 with an RBI single Friday against the Marlins.

Wright now owns a modest five-game hitting streak and is 7-for-17 with four extra-base hits (including two home runs) during that span. It's taken a while, but it looks like he's finally busting out of his slump.
Jun 20 - 11:03 PM

David Wright went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Wright provided the only offense Zack Wheeler would need, homering off of rookie Andrew Heaney in the first inning. Power has been tough to come by for the third baseman, as he is slashing a meager .266/.328/.377 with six home runs and 36 RBI on the season. His OPS had fallen below .700 entering the contest.
Jun 19 - 9:54 PM

David Wright will not be in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

It's Wright's first day off this season, and it comes after he went 1-for-5 and committed a crucial error in Saturday's contest. Eric Campbell will be at the hot corner Sunday.
Jun 8 - 8:27 AM

David Wright went 2-for-4 with a two-run double, a walk, and two runs scored in Monday's win over the Phillies.

With the two-hit night, Wright now leads the National League with 92 hits. While that's all well and good, he's currently on pace for just 11 home runs and nine stolen bases, which isn't what fantasy owners signed up for. We still expect him to pick things up.
Jun 2 - 11:40 PM

David Wright smacked a go-ahead RBI single in the top of the 14th inning as the Mets beat the Phillies 5-4 on Saturday evening at Citizens Bank Park.

Wright didn't have the best all-around afternoon, striking out three times in seven trips to the plate, but he was able to play the role of hero in extras with his single to shallow left field that scored Ruben Tejada. Wright is batting just .294/.339/.396 on the season, though he does have 30 RBI in 55 games for an 88-RBI pace.
May 31 - 8:49 PM

David Wright singled in a run and launched a solo homer in Wednesday's win over the Pirates.

Wright hit just .262 with one homer in April, but his bat has gotten hot in May, as he's batted .342 with three bombs over 26 contests this month. The hot streak has pushed his season line to a nice .304/.349/.415. Lucas Duda also went deep for the Mets Wednesday.
