Wright's Return Up In Air

"Rest wasn't helping David Wright recover quickly enough from his rib injury, so the third baseman decided to get a cortisone shot in New York yesterday, but it's still not known when he will get back on the field.

"I know when David comes back [today], he'll have a time frame in mind, most likely mid-week or late-week, before he resumes some on field activities," manager Terry Collins said after the Mets tied the Tigers, 7-7, in 10 innings at Joker Marchant Stadium. "Then we'll see where he is by the weekend."

General manager Sandy Alderson said the ultrasound-guided injection into the left side of Wright's rib cage was done to accelerate the healing process and that the injury wasn't sever, but opted not to guess at when Wright would be back."
