David Wright has been shut down from his latest rehab assignment. The veteran third baseman has reported still feeling substantial pain in his shoulder. He’ll be reevaluated by doctors in New York this week.
The 32-year old hasn’t seen any playing time this season after sustaining a shoulder impingement during Spring Training. This is Wright’s second set back on the road to recovery, the first being in May when the Mets put a stop to his throwing program.
Wright has been playing in rehab games in Port St. Lucie since August 2nd. Even considering this setback, the beloved Amazin’ isn’t ready to retire yet.
