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 procedure and he also made me aware that it’s normally for people a lot older than me and don’t necessarily have to twist and turn and move up and down. That was the only time we ever even discussed it, and it really wasn’t even a discussion. He just told me he was going to do everything he can to keep me from having it. It wasn’t recommended then and it definitely hasn’t been something we’ve discussed since.”

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 with this, from the information-gathering stage, there has never been a question in my mind [about returning],” Wright said on June 2. “Not only am I going to come back, but I am going to come back sooner rather than later.”

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.
Life is meaningless and full of pain.
