Injuries never stop coming for David Wright, who just suffered yet another setback this Tuesday, as he has been ruled out from baseball activity for at least 8 more weeks from a shoulder issue that has been relegating him from Spring Training workouts.


As James Wagner from the New York Times reported, the Mets' captain had his shoulder and back re-examined this Monday in order to evaluate his fitness, but Wright didn't show any improvement in his injuries.


David Wright has not been able to play regularly since he was diagnosed with spinal stenosis back in 2015, and he has just played 75 regular season games since and missed the whole 2017 campaign because of that.

The 35-year-old player has played with the Mets his whole career and before his injury-plagued seasons, he was a true MLB superstar. He holds a lifetime batting average of .296, with 1,777 hits (he's Mets' franchise leader in this category), and hitting 272 home runs.
