Mets third baseman David Wright left Sunday's game in Los Angeles early due to a muscle spasm on the right side of his neck, the team announced. There's no further word on his condition, so consider him day to day for now.

Wright has been in a slump lately and is all-around having the worst season of his career in several different ways. His power has been sapped to the point that many have wondered if he was injured. Prior to Sunday's game both Wright and manager Terry Collins said he was perfectly healthy, but then he had to be removed from the game in the third inning.

Wright, 31, is hitting .266/.324/.368 with just eight homers this season.
