Mets Injury Update: David Wright out again with shoulder problem

By on 9/09/2014 05:00:00 PM

David Wright's ongoing left shoulder issue will keep the Mets third baseman out of the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Colorado Rockies, reports of the NY Daily News. Wright will undergo further exams, while Eric Campbell plays the hot corner and bats third.

Wright, 31, is hitting .269/.324/.374 (OPS+ 100) with eight homers and 63 RBI, in 134 games. The seven time All-Star has struggled since the All-Star Break, however, hitting only .238/.284/.282 with no homers in 194 PAs. Wright's shoulder problems began in late June and were aggravated August 16 when he was hit in the same spot where he had received a cortisone shot, but the veteran has been in the lineup for almost every game.

Now in his eleventh season, Wright is a career .299/.378/.496 hitter and regarded as the "Captain" of the Mets. He was their first round draft pick in 2001 and made his debut July 21, 2004 at age 21. In 2007 he signed a contract extension for fourteen years and $192 million that takes him through 2020.
