David Wright Has A Stress Fracture in His Back
Well the Mets got even more bad injury news today as stud third baseman David Wright was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his lower back. This will mean that David will not be able to perform baseball activities of any kind for 10 days at the least. Sandy Alderson said that they will get a second opinion on David’s back before placed him on the 15-day DL. This is just another injury in an extremely long line of injuries this season to the Mets.
The team is already playing with out Angel Pagan (CF), Ike Davis (1B), and countless other pitchers. Tonight ‘s lineup and batting order is as follows with Jose Reyes at short, Willie Harris at third, Carlos Beltran in right, Jason Bay in left, Daniel Murphy at first, Justin Turner at second, Jason Pridie in center, Ronny Paulino behind the plate, and Mike Pelphrey on the mound.
In other injury news, first baseman Ike Davis is heading down to the Mets minor-league facility in Port St. Lucie to start a rehab assignment for his sprained left ankle. Without Wright and Davis in the lineup, most of the Mets productivity and power is injured and if the team wants to contend for the NL East title or NL wild card, they need these two guys back as soon as possible.
