Mets' David Wright is still injured. Is he done?

01 March 2017, 12:35 | Simon Arnold

"What's happening here is that the muscles around the shoulder have not re-engaged since the surgery", Alderson said. While at the time the team didn't give a timetable for Wright to return, the surgery ultimately ended his season.

The Mets have some infield flexibility in Wright's absence, with Jose Reyes and Wilmer Flores taking the bulk of reps at third base previous year.

It's really bad news for Mets fans, but is exceptionally awful news for Wright himself, who played in only 75 games in 2015 and 2016 combined due to spinal stenosis and surgery for a herniated disk in his neck.

Also, according to a TSK statement, a 2,225-square-kilometer area has been liberated and is now under the control of the FSA. The offensive, fought by FSA and Turkish ground forces, also aims to limit Kurdish territorial ambitions in the same area.

The New York Mets had to shut down their third baseman's throwing program because of shoulder impingement, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

Wright is owed $67 million by the Mets over the next four seasons. Over the last two seasons, he's battled a serious back injury called spinal stenosis. The 33-year-old switch-hitter played 50 games at third for the Mets last season. Last season, he was batting.226 with seven homers, 14 RBIs and 55 strikeouts in 137 at-bats through May 27 when he was sidelined by neck pain.

Reyes will most likely be the opening day third baseman with Wilmer Flores backing up.
