Mets | David Wright's prognoses

Tue, 26 May 2015 17:54:01 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) is likely dealing with a case of lumbar spinal stenosis. If that is the case, Wright will be able to rehab the injury and progress towards a return to baseball, but his timeline is likely to be measured in weeks, not days.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) could likely be dropped in all but the deepest of NL-only leagues, but owners should wait until Wright gets an official diagnosis from a specialist this week.

Mets | David Wright to meet with specialist

Tue, 26 May 2015 08:59:07 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) will meet with a back specialist in California to gain more clarity on the back issue that continues to plague him. He will seek treatment for back pain and spinal stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spinal column. General manager Sandy Alderson said Wright will spend a week with Dr. Robert Watkins and his staff, and the team hopes to have an update on Wright's status in two or three days. He hasn't played since pulling his right hamstring April 14. None of the doctors that Wright has seen have recommended surgery as an option, and they think his injuries will heal in the short term. Doctors also determined that Wright didn't suffer a repeat of the stress fracture in his lower back that kept him out for two months in 2011. He has averaged 126 games per year from 2011 through 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Wright's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) injury has to be a big concern for his owners at this point, since it looks like he'll be out a while longer, and there is no guarantee he'll be able to hit for power once he's back. In the meantime at FantasyScore, Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will continue to man the hot corner, but he's a low-end third base play.

Mets | Danny Muno to play third base

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:21:15 -0700

New York Mets 3B Danny Muno will fill in for some games at the position as the team awaits further word on 3B David Wright (back).

Fantasy Tip: Muno and Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) appear to be the primary options at third, but neither has an appreciable sample size to merit consideration. Wait and see how Muno does before spending money in your daily lineup on him.

Mets | David Wright has spinal stenosis

Sat, 23 May 2015 12:50:57 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) has been diagnosed with stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal column. The team is confident that he will heal but there is no established timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) appeared to be making progress for most of the week and had even started taking batting practice Friday, May 22, but this is a big setback. Continue to stash him in all fantasy formats and keep checking back for further updates on his status. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been the Mets' primary option at the hot corner in his absence but he is only batting .197 through his first 24 games.

Mets | David Wright progresses to batting practice

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:44:23 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) took batting practice Friday, May 22, and it was the first time since he suffered his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Remain patient and stash Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all seasonal formats, and hopefully his injuries won't linger and negatively impact his offensive upside. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) continues to handle the hot corner, but his fleeting seasonal value appears to be nearing an end. FantasyScore players should view Campbell as nothing more than a low-priced flier.

Mets | David Wright making progress

Thu, 21 May 2015 15:50:40 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) has slowly increased his workload in his rehab this week, but there is no timetable for him to play in a rehab game.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is a notoriously slow healer, and his rehab from hamstring and back injuries is no different here. You'll have to stay patient in traditional leagues and hope his power stroke isn't affected when he returns. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will continue to man the hot corner in the meantime. He's a low-end third base option at FantasyScore, though.

Mets | David Wright, Travis d'Arnaud over a week away

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:51:47 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring, back) and C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) are both 10 days to two weeks away from a return to the team, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Both players are progressing very slowly, and you have to wonder how much power Wright will have when he comes back. In the meantime, Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is manning the hot corner, while Kevin Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is seeing the majority of starts behind the dish. Both players are weak FantasyScore commodities.

Mets | David Wright begins baseball activities

Mon, 18 May 2015 15:07:56 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) started baseball activities Monday, May 18, but he did not swing a bat.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for updates, and Wright should be stashed in all fantasy formats. He isn't close to rejoining the Mets, as there isn't even a timeline for him to begin a minor league rehab stint. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Daniel Murphy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) project to continue receiving starts at the hot corner until Wright returns.

Mets | David Wright rehab update

Sun, 17 May 2015 12:29:13 -0700

Confirming a previous report, New York Mets manager Terry Collins said 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) will resume baseball activities Monday, May 18, at the club's spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has not performed baseball activities for at least 10 days and it is unknown when he will begin a minor league rehab assignment, so a return to the majors won't take place anytime soon. However, he should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Daniel Murphy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will continue to see time at the hot corner until Wright returns.

Mets | David Wright may be cleared soon

Fri, 15 May 2015 13:56:56 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) could be cleared for baseball activities by Monday, May 18, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) stopped baseball activities last week because of back pain but may resume activities next week. Daniel Murphy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will continue be the regular third baseman while Wright is out and could be a cheaper option to consider on FantasyScore.
