Heyman - David Wright Headed To California For Check-Up On Neck

Mets captain David Wright is off to Los Angeles today for a scheduled checkup on his surgically-repaired neck with his surgeon, noted back special Robert Watkins, with hopes of being cleared to resume some light baseball activities, or at least receive a schedule to do so.

Wright, who’s traveling from Cincinnati where he was with the team, confirmed the appointment via email, saying it was a “routine checkup” that was “set up after surgery.”

New York Mets’ David Wright mulls surgery for herniated disk in neck - Mets Blog- ESPN

—New York Mets third baseman David Wright may opt for surgery to address the herniated disk in his neck rather than continue a conservative rehab process, general manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday.

“By the end of this week we’ll know something more about David’s situation,” Alderson said.

Wright has been on the disabled list since June 3.

The captain has spent the past week in Los Angeles with Dr. Robert Watkins, who previously had treated Wright for spinal stenosis in the lower back.

Alderson said Watkins is conferring with team doctors about whether surgery is now the proper route for Wright with respect to the herniated disk.

Alderson said he could not say whether surgery, if selected, would end Wright’s season.

“That’s speculation based on an option that he hasn’t even chosen at this point, or hasn’t been agreed upon,” Alderson said.
