David Wright Newsbeat
Tuesday, September 06, 2016
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.”

After weeks therapy and oral and local medications, David Wright has decided to have surgery to repair the herniated disc in his neck. The surgery was scheduled for Thursday in California with Dr. Robert Watkins, the Mets announced Thursday morning.
While the Mets said there is no timetable for Wright’s return, the Mets captain’s season is effectively over.

—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.

The problem can only be managed. Hopefully, Collins will protect Wright from himself.
“This is the first time this year where I’ve come to the ballpark where I felt the significance of it—the back. Most of the days have been fairly mediocre. Today was more toward the bad. I didn’t really know what to expect. I thought the extra treatment and the extra preparation that I put in would help. And I wanted to give it a go. Terry just kind of said no-go. More than anything, I’m mad at the situation. I’m frustrated at the situation. But there’s just nothing you can do. It is what it is.

Two hours of prep each day to play.
“We knew that if he shortened his leg kick and got that under control,’’ Long told The Post, “we were hoping that the consistency would be a lot better and it has been.
“I have nothing but the utmost respect for David and how he goes about his business,’’ Long said. “He’s doing the best he can with the circumstances that he is currently under.’’
Wright, because of his spinal stenosis, cannot work his way out of hitting problems. He can’t just go to the cage because he only has a limited amount of swings he can take on any given day. This is about trying to do more with less — fewer swings, fewer at-bats, fewer games.

Well, he didn’t look good one game. Time to release him.
Again, this is about the bigger questions, not a single game. Already, both Wright and the Mets have conceded he will need more frequent days off. But will there also have to be discussions eventually about dropping him in the order?
