David Wright the captain of the Mets with a .226 batting average might be gone for good after a slow recovery. After only participating in half of the games in the 2016 season due to a neck surgery, and shoulder injury it will be difficult to recover.
David Wright was often on the bench for half of the season.
This year in spring training David Wright has not been seen throwing a baseball. After recovering from a neck surgery and, shoulder impingement he has been fielding and batting but has been throwing behind “Closed doors.”
He can be seen fielding during spring training but not throwing.
At the end of the 2016 season it was said that it took multiple hours for David to prepare before a game. He claims not to know how much his injuries affected him but Terry Collins (The coach of the Mets) said he had “No doubt.“ "That it has greatly affected his throwing." He told the New York Post
David Wright will have to stretch for multiple hours before each game.
According to the New York Post, “Now that Wright has recovered from his neck surgery he will have to continue to deal with his spinal stenosis, the Mets have set a spring training schedule for him that will evolve daily based on how his body is responding to drills and game action.”
There is no sign of a quick recovery and he will have a tough Spring Training.
There is now way to know how he will recover and only time can tell what will happen to the captain.
For now he is still on the roster but things can and most likely will change.
