Mets 3B Wright gets treated for bruised rotator cuff, out for Atlanta series, not headed to DL

  • Print

ATLANTA - Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday there is "zero" thought of placing David Wright on the disabled list even though the third baseman will remain in New York and miss the three-game series with the Braves.

Wright, who has a bruised left rotator cuff, had a follow-up examination in New York on Monday. Collins said the exam "went OK."

Wright will receive more treatment this week while resting his non-throwing shoulder.

Collins said he hopes Wright will be ready to play on Friday, when the Mets open a weekend home series against Texas.

"He's not 100 per cent so we're going to give him a few more days," Collins said. "He's going to meet us in New York on Friday and be ready to go then.

"I thought it was important to make sure that when he comes back that we don't have issues."

Wright was scratched from Friday night's lineup against Pittsburgh and also was held out Saturday and Sunday. He is hitting .277 with six homers and 41 RBIs.

The seven-time All-Star had an MRI on Saturday in New York.

Rookie Eric Campbell is starting at third base and hitting fourth against the Braves on Monday night.
