New York Mets

New York Mets captain David Wright has been ailing all year long and will go under the knife today in a surgery that will likely end his season.

There were numerous questions regarding David Wright’s health entering the 2016 season. Optimistic fans hoped that the New York Mets third baseman would be able to weather the storm and eke out 120 games with a case of spinal stenosis that has hampered his dwindling career.

However, the direct opposite has happened and no one can say they were surprised.

Wright, who is currently on the disabled list with a herniated disc in his neck, will undergo surgery today to repair what has been a lingering problem.

While a timetable for return is currently uncertain, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com stated that a surgery of this nature usually carries a minimum recovery of three months.


With that said, it can almost certainly be speculated that Wright will not be seen on a major league diamond until 2017.

Signed through 2020, the 33-year-old was slashing .226/.350/.438 with seven homers and 14 RBIs in 37 games prior to going down.
