Mets third baseman David Wright just recently began throwing a baseball for the first time since neck surgery last June. He’s suffered a setback, however, and now won’t throw for “a couple weeks” after being diagnosed with a right shoulder impingement.
He began experiencing shoulder soreness in some of his private throwing sessions in the past week, so the Mets have sent him to New York to get checked out. General manager Sandy Alderson is calling him “questionable” for Opening Day.
The Mets were not sure how much they could get from Wright in 2017 to begin with, but this is nonetheless bad news.
