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.
The Brewers announced on Tuesday that reliever Boone Logan has been designated for assignment and starter Freddy Peralta has been recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Peralta will start on Tuesday evening against the Pirates, opposite Jameson Taillon at PNC Park.
Logan, 33, has struggled this season, serving up seven runs on 15 hits and 10 walks with 14 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings. The lefty inked a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Brewers in January, but he missed the first six weeks of the season with a triceps injury.
Peralta, 22, made his major league debut last month, making a stellar start against the Rockies at Coors Field. He struck out 13 batters over 5 2/3 scoreless innings. He made another, less successful start against the Twins before heading back to the minors. With Colorado Springs, Peralta owns a 2.75 ERA with 84 strikeouts and 27 walks over 59 innings.
