Mets | David Wright has spinal stenosis

Sat, 23 May 2015 12:50:57 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) has been diagnosed with stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal column. The team is confident that he will heal but there is no established timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) appeared to be making progress for most of the week and had even started taking batting practice Friday, May 22, but this is a big setback. Continue to stash him in all fantasy formats and keep checking back for further updates on his status. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been the Mets' primary option at the hot corner in his absence but he is only batting .197 through his first 24 games.

Mets | David Wright progresses to batting practice

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:44:23 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) took batting practice Friday, May 22, and it was the first time since he suffered his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Remain patient and stash Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all seasonal formats, and hopefully his injuries won't linger and negatively impact his offensive upside. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) continues to handle the hot corner, but his fleeting seasonal value appears to be nearing an end. FantasyScore players should view Campbell as nothing more than a low-priced flier.

Mets | David Wright making progress

Thu, 21 May 2015 15:50:40 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) has slowly increased his workload in his rehab this week, but there is no timetable for him to play in a rehab game.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is a notoriously slow healer, and his rehab from hamstring and back injuries is no different here. You'll have to stay patient in traditional leagues and hope his power stroke isn't affected when he returns. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will continue to man the hot corner in the meantime. He's a low-end third base option at FantasyScore, though.

Mets | David Wright, Travis d'Arnaud over a week away

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:51:47 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring, back) and C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) are both 10 days to two weeks away from a return to the team, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Both players are progressing very slowly, and you have to wonder how much power Wright will have when he comes back. In the meantime, Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is manning the hot corner, while Kevin Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is seeing the majority of starts behind the dish. Both players are weak FantasyScore commodities.

Mets | David Wright begins baseball activities

Mon, 18 May 2015 15:07:56 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) started baseball activities Monday, May 18, but he did not swing a bat.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for updates, and Wright should be stashed in all fantasy formats. He isn't close to rejoining the Mets, as there isn't even a timeline for him to begin a minor league rehab stint. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Daniel Murphy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) project to continue receiving starts at the hot corner until Wright returns.

Mets | David Wright rehab update

Sun, 17 May 2015 12:29:13 -0700

Confirming a previous report, New York Mets manager Terry Collins said 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) will resume baseball activities Monday, May 18, at the club's spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has not performed baseball activities for at least 10 days and it is unknown when he will begin a minor league rehab assignment, so a return to the majors won't take place anytime soon. However, he should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Daniel Murphy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will continue to see time at the hot corner until Wright returns.

Mets | David Wright may be cleared soon

Fri, 15 May 2015 13:56:56 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) could be cleared for baseball activities by Monday, May 18, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) stopped baseball activities last week because of back pain but may resume activities next week. Daniel Murphy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will continue be the regular third baseman while Wright is out and could be a cheaper option to consider on FantasyScore.

Mets | No baseball activities for David Wright

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:11:52 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back, hamstring) continued to receive treatment on his back Tuesday, May 12, but he hasn't resumed baseball activities. He's not dealing with a repeat of a stress fracture that cost him two months on the disabled list back in 2011, though. "He's dying to get back out there, but there's no real timetable when that's going to happen," manager Terry Collins said Tuesday. "... The only good news is he feels better."

Fantasy Tip: You'll have to stay patient with Wright in standard leagues, as it looks like it may be a while before he's back in action. In the meantime at FantasyScore, Daniel Murphy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will continue to reap the benefits of hitting third in the lineup. Dilson Herrera ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) should continue to serve as the starting second baseman, but he's a low-end option in daily games.

Mets | David Wright receives back treatment

Mon, 11 May 2015 15:37:39 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring, back) received treatment on his back Monday, May 11, and he may start baseball activities Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is likely another two weeks away from returning, at least. Continue to stash him in all formats and check back for updates on his progress and a return timetable. With Daniel Murphy ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) covering the hot corner, Dilson Herrera ($2,000, 4.0% of your cap) remains a low-priced flier when he has a favorable matchup for FantasyScore players.

Mets | David Wright shut down

Fri, 08 May 2015 09:20:19 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring, back) has been shut down from his rehab from a hamstring injury due to back pain. An MRI revealed no structural damage. He was progressing from the hamstring injury, but he will not resume baseball activities until the back pain subsides.

Fantasy Tip: Wright will probably be out at least another two weeks now. This will buy Dilson Herrera ($2,000, 4.0% of your cap) more time at second with Daniel Murphy at third. Herrera will be a matchup play on FantasyScore at the basement level.
