New York Mets Get Good News on Injuries

New York Mets Get Good News on Injuries
Wright Will Not Have to Go on the Disabled List.

The New York Mets received good news on Monday as third baseman David Wright will not go on the disabled list. 

Manager Terry Collins said the seven time All-Star will miss the three game set with the Atlanta Braves, but should return soon after. Wright had missed the previous three games with a bruised rotator cuff in his left shoulder. 

While the third baseman hasn't had his best season, hitting .277 so far, his bat should be a welcomed boost to the middle of the line-up. 

Rookie Eric Campbell has taken over for Wright at third base and shined during the few games he's played. That should come as good news to Terry Collins and Mets fans as the offense has struggled to find its groove in 2014, averaging a little less than four runs per game

David Wright avoiding the disabled list isn't the only positive injury news for the Mets, as starter Dillon Gee threw a rehab start in Single-A Brooklyn on Sunday.

"I struggled with fastball command," Gee said following the outing. "But the off-speed was pretty good for the most part." 

Gee struck out six in 2.2 innings of work, and he gave up just a single run. It was his second rehab start since being sidelined with a strained lat muscle in May.

"I had a lot of adrenaline going into this game because it's my first time out in a couple of months in front of a crowd," Gee admitted. 

Wright misses the disabled list, Gee could return to the starting rotation relatively soon, maybe things are starting to look up for the New York Mets.
