It’s Captain America calling!
At the beginning of a historic night for the Mets offense, David Wright announced his relevance to the pennant race with one thundering swing: top of the second inning, boom, second deck in left field.
With that, the Mets’ weirdly successful August became even weirder. Wright returns to a Twilight Zone, where everything works out for this team. It’s a reality barely recognizable from what the captain has seen for years.
“I hope that everyone here is soaking ...
He’s almost back.
Things keep looking better and better for the Mets.
Why does Collins want Wright batting second?
“His on-base percentage is so good,” Collins said. “He can run the bases. He brings a lot to the table. You look throughout the league now and there are big-name hitters, power guys hitting second. The new thing is to get all these guys up in that spot where they can get up more.’’
This is the first time Wright will have three straight days of baseball activity, and he recently completed back-to-back days Tuesday and Wednesday.
Wright is fielding and taking batting practice in the cage.
“Everything’s good. Now it’s a matter of getting the reps without overdoing it,” Wright said after working out prior to Friday’s game against the Nationals. “Incremental steps every day where not only are you doing the baseball thing a number of days in a row but you’re also kind ...

What are Wright’s thoughts on potential surgery?
“I have very little knowledge of it,’’ he said. “I sat down for the consultation with the doctors, the first couple of meetings. I was made aware that there is a surgery for it. I was also made aware that Dr. Watkins was going to do everything in his power to make sure that I do not need that surgery, and that’s really the only time we’ve talked about it. He made me aware there is a ...
Wright was in uniform with the team early last month for three games in San Diego, at which time he told reporters he unequivocally expected to return this season. Wright has been visiting with Watkins every Monday, at which time the doctor and patient review a checklist and a workout is prescribed for the upcoming week.
Wright said he was told early on that surgery wouldn’t be an option — unless he was careless in his rehab and the condition worsened.
“From the moment I was diagnosed ...
Stenosis? I hardly know her.
UPDATE: Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that Wright has been diagnosed with stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal column. That doesn’t sound good. The Mets believe that the injury will heal, but there’s no timetable. They probably can’t count on him anytime soon.
2:50 p.m. ET: Rough news for the Mets here, as Marc Carig of New York Newsday reports that David Wright has been shut down for another week due to continued back issues.
Third baseman David Wright has been on the disabled list since mid-April with a strained hamstring and recent reports had his recovery going slower than expected. And now we know why, as the Mets announced that Wright suffered a back injury earlier this week.
Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Wright has had lower back pain for several days, but an MRI exam revealed no structural damage. However, his rehab has been put on hold and there’s no timetable for it resuming.
