Insight: Wright ia a career .429 hitter (12-for-28) against Phillies starter Aaron Harang including five extra base hits. Add it a strong breeze blowing out to left and it could be a good day for Wright, who has started the season batting .320 through six games.

Insight: Wright registered two more hits on Sunday versus the Braves and is hiting .320/.346/.440 after the first week. He also had a walk on Sunday. Wright battled injures last season, so he has the potential to be much better this season since he is healthy.

Description: Mets third baseman David Wright knocked in his first two runs of the season on Thursday.
Insight: He did so in a win over the Nationals. Wright went 2-for-5 with one run and the two RBI. It seems he will continue to hit second in the order for time being.

He may need surgery if a six-week strengthening program doesn't work. He will test his shoulder around Nov. 1 and if Wright does need surgury, he could miss Opening Day 2015. Wright batted just .269 with eight home runs and 63 RBI while playing hurt this season.

9/5/2014 10:57:00 PM
Description: Mets third baseman David Wright went 4-for-5 with a RBI and two runs as the Mets routed the Reds, 14-5.
Insight: It was nice to see Wright explode for a big offensive night. The third baseman has had a tough year, nursing a shoulder injury for much of the second half. In his last three games, Wright has seven hits in 14 at-bats but also has an 0-for-5 night which came on Wednesday.
 
9/2/2014 10:11:00 AM
Description: Mets third baseman David Wright is 12-for-20 (.600) with four home runs against Miami starter Brad Penny.
Insight: Wright just isn't the same player with his hurt shoulder as evidence by the fact his last extra-base hit was Aug. 7. Despite the favorable matchup I'd keep away from Wright until his shoulder is fully healed.
 
9/1/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Mets third baseman David Wright is 9-for-19 (.474) against Miami starter Henderson Alvarez.
Insight: Wright just isn't the same player with his hurt shoulder as evidence by the fact his last extra-base hit was Aug. 7. Despite the favorable matchup I'd keep away from Wright until his shoulder is fully healed.

8/28/2014 5:17:00 PM
Description: Mets third baseman David Wright is back in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves.
Insight: The plan was for Wright to return Thursday, so this isn't a surprise. The third baseman has been sidelined since Sunday with neck spasms and has been dealing with a shoulder injury most of the season. He is hoping to finish the season even though he is less than 100 percent.
 
8/27/2014 4:45:00 PM
Description: Mets third baseman David Wright remains out of the Mets lineup with neck spasms.
Insight: Wright is listed as day-to-day but remember that even when he returns, he will not be completely healthy. The third baseman is having a very disappointing season at .266/.324/.368.
 
8/27/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Mets third baseman David Wright did not deny on Tuesday that his shoulder is hurting him, but Wright also did not blame his shoulder for his below average season.
Insight: Wright has denied in the past that he is still battling a shoulder injury, but after hitting coach Lamar Johnson said in an interview on Tuesday that the third baseman was struggling with his shoulder, Wright did nothing to deny it. He did, however, refuse to blame the shoulder for his well below average numbers this year. Wright is batting just .244 with two home runs in his last 44 games since the injury. He is now out with a minor neck issue. Seeing as he won't be healthy until next year, don't count on those numbers going up in September.
 
8/26/2014 4:22:00 PM
Description: Mets third baseman David Wright left Sunday's game with neck spasms and is not in Tuesday's game against Atlanta.
Insight: Wright has batted just .266 with eight homers, 56 RBI, 49 runs and a .692 OPS in 489 at-bats this season. He's been dealing with a bruised left rotator cuff for most of the year and it is obviously effecting his production.
