Wright (neck) will be moved to the 60-day DL on Tuesday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. With Jose Reyes set to return to the Mets on Tuesday, the move to the 60-day DL will free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Wright remains without a firm return timeline, and it's possible he could miss the entirety of the remainder of the 2016 season after undergoing neck surgery back in mid-June.
Wright (neck) is unsure if he can return this season, James Wagner of the New York Times reports. Two weeks after cervical disectomy and fusion surgery, Wright is saying that he is unsure if he will be able to return in 2016. The 33-year-old also has a condition called spinal stenosis, which narrows the spine and causes pain, weakness, and numbness, that could further delay his recovery time. The third baseman is still a ways away from resuming baseball activities and a return to the majors this season appears highly questionable.
Wright (neck) underwent a successful cervical disectomy and fusion surgery Thursday and no timetable for his return has been released, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Wright met with team doctors earlier in the week to discuss the course of action regarding his neck injury and ultimately they decided to have him undergo a surgical procedure. The surgery was successful, but the remainder of his season remains in doubt as there is no timetable for his return. Barring a move at the trade deadline, the Mets will likely use a combination of Wilmer Flores, Kelly Johnson, and Matt Reynolds at the hot corner with Wright sidelined.
Wright (neck) will undergo surgery Thursday and is expected to miss several months, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. The veteran had initially hoped that rest and rehab would be enough to alleviate the issues in his neck and back, but he'll now opt for surgery, which will likely keep him out for at least three months, possibly threatening the rest of his 2016 season. "After trying every way to get back on the field, I've come to realize that it's best for me, my teammates and the organization to proceed with surgery at this time," Wright said in a statement Thursday. "My neck simply did not respond to any of the treatments of the past few weeks. While incredibly frustrating and disappointing, I am determined to make a full recovery and get back on the field as soon as I can to help the Mets win."
Wright (neck) will meet with team doctors this week to discuss whether the veteran third baseman will require surgery, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Although DiComo reports that Wright would likely opt to stick with rehabbing the injury rather than going the surgical route, Wright will nonetheless meet with doctors to determine if surgery is the best option. He was shut down for 6-to-8 weeks when he was placed on the DL on June 3, which means he'd be out until late July or early August in the best case scenario. If surgery ends up being the course of action, it would stretch out that timetable by a significant amount in all likelihood.
