New York Mets’ David Wright shut down from baseball activity for 8 weeks

MLB


David Wright‘s shoulder and lower-back issues continue to persist and he has been told to do no baseball activity for eight weeks, the New York Mets announced Tuesday.

The veteran third baseman was examined in Los Angeles on Monday by Dr. Robert Watkins.

The 35-year-old Wright didn’t play in the majors last season. Wright’s shoulder pain from three Florida State League games last August led him to shut himself down. He had shoulder surgery Sept. 5 to fix his right rotator cuff. The next month he had a laminotomy to remove a bony layer over his spinal canal to treat nerve compression.

Wright is signed through the 2020 season as part of seven-year, $122 million contract extension he signed with the Mets in 2012.

A seven-time All-Star, Wright has a .296 average, 242 home runs and 970 RBIs in 13 seasons.

The Mets signed third baseman Todd Frazier in the offseason as Wright’s availability to play has been in question.
