New York Mets third-baseman and captain, David Wright, is still awaiting the word that he can now resume normal baseball activities.
For David Wright, it seems 2015 is just not going to happen.
The major concern that surrounded his mysterious and worrisome back injury now heightens as the New York Mets third-baseman still isn’t cleared for baseball activities.
Mike Puma of New York Post recently reported that general manager Sandy Alderson told us there has been “no change” in Wright’s current status.
This comes a day after manager Terry Collins called Wright on the “upswing” and that he was, indeed, taking part in some baseball related activities (as elementary as they might be).
It doesn’t take a brain-surgeon to realize what’s going on here.
Status quo for Mets’ Wright with spinal stenosis http://t.co/mpj4Aa1tFL

His spinal stenosis diagnosis will keep Wright out for at least the rest of the season. Watching Daniel Murphy slide into third-base needs to be the first indication of that.
For the rest of the season and beyond, the Mets organization truly needs to act as though Wright doesn’t even exist. If he miraculously comes back, it’ll be an added bonus.
Wright hasn’t played since April 14 of this season.
