David Wright has a bruised rotator cuff, which will not require surgery, the team said.
He will be re-evaluated Monday in New York to determine whether he needs time to recover on the disabled list.
Wright was a late scratch from Friday’s game against the Pirates after hurting it twice during Thursday’s game.
Wright had initially injured his left shoulder several weeks ago during a slide on June 12 at Citi Field. He had an MRI on earlier on Saturday.
Wright has been on a hot-streak of late batting .400 in his last nine games before sitting out. Thursday’s injury was just too much to take.
“It hasn’t gotten worse until now,” Wright said Friday. “These last three weeks or so I feel I’ve been able to be productive and go through normal baseball things without feeling hesitant.”
