Mets Injury Update: David Wright pleased with rehab progress

By on 10/09/2014 06:00:00 AM

The New York Mets finished the 2014 season with a 79-83 record, tied for second with the Atlanta Braves in the National League East. Although ninth in the Major Leagues in ERA, the Mets were slowed by an offense that was just 20th in runs scored. The injury to third baseman David Wright was a major reason for the offensive woes. The good news is that Wright is pleased with the progress he is making in his rehab from his shoulder injury.

I reported on September 10 that Wright, who had been bothered by a shoulder issue all summer, was shut down for the rest of the season.

An update on Wright, as reported by Mike Vorkunov at, is that he seems to be on track in his recovery from a shoulder injury. Wright started a six week rehab program which should be over around the beginning of November. Wright is optimistic about his recovery.
"I'm feeling pretty good. I'm excited to finish this six week rehab program at the end of the time and go hopefully clear to start my normal off season routine. The motivation for me is to be healthy first and foremost...And get back to the level I'm accustomed to playing to."
Wright, in his 11th Major League season, ended the season with a .269 average with eight home runs and 63 RBI. In 1,508 career games, Wright has a batting average of .298 with 230 home runs and 939 RBI.
