Mets Injury Update: MRI shows improvement in David Wright's shoulder

By on 11/08/2014 10:30:00 AM

The New York Mets won 79 games in 2014 to finish tied for second in the National League East. Lead by a pitching staff that was ninth in the Major Leagues in ERA at 3.49, their offense must improve from their 21st ranking in runs scored for the Mets to contend next season. One thing that should help is a healthy David Wright, who is showing considerable improvement in his injured left shoulder.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on October 25 that Wright,  who sat out the final 21 days of the season with a sprained left shoulder, was progressing nicely in his rehab and expecting to be ready by Spring Training.

An update on Wright, as reported by Adam Rubin of, is that after a six-week rehab program, his shoulder has shown "marked improvement", as announced by the Mets.  Wright will be able to begin baseball activities next month. There is still no word whether or not Wright will need surgery. That will be determined after he begins swinging a bat, although Wright feels surgery is not likely.

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.
