From beat writer Andy Martino of the New York Daily News comes word that Mets third baseman David Wright has been diagnosed with a small fracture near the middle of his right pinkie finger.

Wright doesn’t need surgery, but he has been put in a protective splint and will be sidelined indefinitely.

The Mets will reevaluate him on Wednesday and attempt to come up with a recovery timetable.

Wright suffered the injury Monday while diving back into a base on a pickoff attempt. The 29-year-old is 7-for-12 this season with a homer and four RBI. Ronny Cedeno filled in at the hot corner Tuesday night.
