Chesapeake native David Wright to have shoulder surgery

Chesapeake native David Wright to have shoulder surgery”

The next year, Wright had a procedure to fix a herniated disk in his neck.

Given all the problems Wright has had trying to get back on a baseball field, his future in Major League Baseball is unstable.

While the organization should continue to back Wright's desire to play again, it clearly no longer can count on him doing so in Flushing, perhaps ever, and it must address the third-base position with more permanence this winter in planning for 2018 and beyond.

More bad news came from the Mets latest medical report.

"After playing in a few games, I continued to have shoulder pain". Wright, 34, released a statement last Monday saying he had his shoulder checked by a doctor.

Yet that certainly shouldn't change an indisputable truth about his standing as a player on the Mets going forward. He needed Tommy Johny surgery in 2013, which he returned from successfully in 2015.

He is one of our Mets scheduled for surgery this week.

Nevertheless, Wright does hold the team records in a dozen offensive categories, including hits (1,777), runs batted in (970), runs (949) and doubles (390).

Wright has three years and $47 million remaining on an eight-year, $138 million deal he signed in 2012.

NY manager Terry Collins tells MLB.com the 34 year old is not hanging up his spikes just yet.

As a whole, the Mets injury list this season has been disheartening for fans who had World Series aspirations.

Wright was shut down in spring training after experiencing discomfort throwing while trying to come back from a cervical discectomy and fusion surgery in his neck in June of previous year. "You never want that to happen to nobody, especially with all the stuff he's been through lately".
