Last year, though, Wright suffered through an injury-plagued year in which he played just 102 games and hit .254/.345/.427. The Mets were hoping for a solid comeback this season, but Wright had a cortisone shot in New York on Monday and now we know exactly what his injury is:

It sounds pretty painful. Most likely, it is pretty painful, and comments like this:
“I know when David comes back [today], he’ll have a time frame in mind, most likely mid-week or late-week, before he resumes some on field activities,” manager Terry Collins said after the Mets tied the Tigers, 7-7, in 10 innings at Joker Marchant Stadium. “Then we’ll see where he is by the weekend.”
… though they’re meant to sound encouraging, have more of a “What are we going to do?!?!?!” vibe around them.
