David Wright is out until at least Friday with shoulder injury

For now at least David Wright has avoided the disabled list with a bruised rotator cuff in his left shoulder, but the Mets just announced that the All-Star third baseman will be out of the lineup until at least Friday.

In fact, Wright isn’t even on the team’s current road trip to Atlanta and Mike Vorkunov of the Newark Star Ledger reports that he’ll rejoin the team when it returns to New York on Friday after getting “rest and treatment until then.”

Wright played through the injury for several weeks before shutting things down over the weekend and actually currently has a 10-game hitting streak during which he’s posted a 1.083 OPS with eight extra-base hits.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
