Mets | David Wright turning a corner?

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:30:28 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) could start taking ground balls and running next week.

Fantasy Tip: There's no guarantee that Wright ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) will progress to baseball activities, but the team is optimistic. There remains no timetable on his return and given his injury history and slow-healing ways, expect him back later than sooner. Ruben Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) continues to benefit from an everyday role with the Mets' infield shuffling around Wright's injury, but he's strictly a fantasy option for those in deeper mixed and NL leagues.

Mets | David Wright still without return timetable

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:31:51 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) remains in Los Angeles, receiving treatment for the narrowing of the spinal cavity in his lower back. There is no clear timeline for his return, according to general manager Sandy Alderson. "I think he's making progress with his rehab, but he hasn't transitioned to baseball activity," Alderson said Friday, June 26. "I honestly can't tell you on Monday when I talk to him again that he will have transitioned to baseball activity. It's something where we just have to wait and see."

Fantasy Tip: At this point, fantasy owners should be thrilled to receive any significant contribution from Wright this season, as there is a legitimate chance he stumbles upon his return. Plus, there is no indication when he'll return. For the time being, he is worth stashing in all formats, but expectations should be kept in check.

Mets | David Wright could return at AS break

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 10:28:03 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) could return at the All-Star break, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: The All-Star Game is just under one month away, but Wright has been a slower healer in the past. Keep him on your DL, but it's best to count on him as a bonus plan than a main cog at this point.

Mets | David Wright still being examined

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 12:50:07 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) is expected to be in Los Angeles for several weeks, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Time is running out for Wright ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) to make an impact in the second half of the season for his fantasy owners. There's no guarantee he'll be able to regain his power stroke when he returns, either. Continue to stash him in all formats. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) continues to man the hot corner, but he's a player to avoid on FantasyScore.

Mets | David Wright aiming to return

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 05:32:59 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) said he has been assured he'll return this season from spinal stenosis. He said the stenosis is caused by a combination of having a genetically narrow spinal cavity, calcium deposits that accumulated after a stress fracture in 2011 and the wear and tear of twisting and other baseball movements on the disks in his lower back. Wright's rehab consists of trying to strengthen and stabilize the area around the spinal cavity in his lower back. He said doctors have strongly advised him to be conservative, even when he eventually returns and advised him against surgery. Trying to play through any discomfort in the future could have grave implications and prompt the need for surgery. "I don't expect him back in the next couple of weeks by any means," general manager Sandy Alderson said. "But, at the same time, we do expect him back sometime this season.

Fantasy Tip: Wright should be stashed on your DL, but it's unlikely he'll be back by the All-Star break.

Mets | David Wright receives more treatment

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:56:40 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) received epidural injections Monday, May 25, and he will remain in Los Angeles into next week.

Fantasy Tip: The news continues to go from bad to worse for Wright, and unless your stashing him in an injured reserve slot, you likely should look to replace him. There is no telling how he'll perform when he returns, or even when he'll return. Continue to check back for updates.

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.
