Fear and panic set in for most Mets fans when David Wright was pulled from the lineup with an injury to his left shoulder a couple of days back, but an MRI taken in New York City yesterday revealed no structural damage to it. As a result, Wright will continue to rest while taking anti-inflammatories, and he'll be re-examined on Monday.
Wright had gotten off to a slow start this season, but after suffering the injury roughly three weeks ago, he played through the pain and kept the injury to himself. While he hasn't had a great month of June, Wright was definitely on a hot streak before the injury became too much to bear. Over his last nine games before the injury flared up again, he hit .400/.405/.743. For the season, he still has just a .277/.333/.396 slash line, but a few more weeks like the one he had would get his numbers closer to his career norms.
