David Wright is not in Monday’s starting lineup, as he continues to rest a bruised rotator cuff.
Wright will not go on the disabled list, Terry Collins said. However, he’ll be unavailable until Friday when he is expected to rejoin the team at Citi Field.
This past weekend, Wright had an MRI on his shoulder, which he initially injured weeks ago while sliding in to second base . He was scheduled to have the shoulder re-examined earlier today in New York.
“It hasn’t gotten worse until now,” Wright said Friday, when he first reported the injury to the team. “These last three weeks or so I feel I’ve been able to be productive and go through normal baseball things without feeling hesitant.”
Wright had been hitting .400 during his previous nine games, during which the Mets were 5-4.
