Mets Injury Update: David Wright remains out of lineup on Friday night

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

The team captain hasn't played in a game for the Mets in over a week.

Earler this week we learned that David Wright would be joining the Mets in New York tonight after resting his bruised shoulder while the team played in Atlanta.

Now it is Friday, but tonight's lineup has no Wright in it. Hopefully this is just Wright getting some extra rest against what is a tough matchup with Texas ace Yu Darvish. If it turns out to be something worse than that, we'll be sure to let you know.

After getting off to a slow start this season, Wright hit .320/.360/.461 in May before slowing down again in June, when was reportedly dealing with pain in his shoulder. He's already missed six games with what was diagnosed as a bruised rotator cuff before tonight. If Wright is out any longer, the Mets will look foolish for not putting him on the disabled list and playing with 24 men all week.

In relief of Wright, Eric Campbell has picked up at least one hit in every game he's played at third base.
