David Wright has ligament damage in his shoulder


David Wright was shut down for the season on September 9 with inflammation in his left shoulder. Turns out it’s worse than inflammation: an MRI taken this week on the shoulder showed ligament damage. He’s on a strengthening program that is supposed to last six weeks. If that doesn’t work, he could have to have surgery.

Marc Carig of Newsday has an article today about why, if Wright has been ailing for a long time, he just had the MRI this week. And wondering if, perhaps, he and the Mets waited too long to do that.
