David Wright cleared to play after examination

7 Comments

Whether he’ll be in the lineup Friday is still to be determined, but David Wright has been cleared to play after seeing a hand specialist for the second straight day on Thursday.

Wright’s status for Friday against the Phillies will be a game-time decision.

Wright has missed two games since breaking his right pinkie finger diving into a base on Monday night. The finger won’t be pain-free for weeks yet, so it’s simply a matter of how much pain Wright can tolerate if he wants to play. The guess is that he’ll give it a try Friday. However, if that doesn’t go well, he could miss some additional time afterwards.
