New York Mets’ Captain, David Wright, Lands On The DL

David Wright, the New York Mets captain, landed on the disabled list after last night’s game.

Since the collapses of the 2007 and 2008 seasons, the New York Mets have failed to be relevant, even post All-Star break, let alone in September or October.

For the majority of the first half, it appeared the Metropolitans were headed for disaster, until a recent stretch where they have been playing above-.500-ball.

While phenom Matt Harvey, new comer Juan Lagares, and a revitalized Marlon Byrd and Eric Young Jr. Have been the catalysts, David Wright has been the steady force that is expected of a captain. 

Hitting over .309 along with 16 homers and 54 RBIs, the seven time all-star has been quietly having another solid season.

In last night’s 4-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals, Wright hit a two run blast, but while running out a grounder in the 10thinning, came up limping.

On the play he injured his hamstring and was placed on the 15 Day DL. Mike Baxter, who made a crashing into the fence, no-hitter saving catch, was recalled from Triple A Las Vegas 51s.

Watch for Justin Turner and possible Josh Satin at third in Wright,s absence as the Mets battle to .500
