Description: Mets third baseman David Wright is back in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves.
Insight: The plan was for Wright to return Thursday, so this isn't a surprise. The third baseman has been sidelined since Sunday with neck spasms and has been dealing with a shoulder injury most of the season. He is hoping to finish the season even though he is less than 100 percent.

Description: Mets third baseman David Wright remains out of the Mets lineup with neck spasms.

Description: Mets third baseman David Wright did not deny on Tuesday that his shoulder is hurting him, but Wright also did not blame his shoulder for his below average season.
Insight: Wright has denied in the past that he is still battling a shoulder injury, but after hitting coach Lamar Johnson said in an interview on Tuesday that the third baseman was struggling with his shoulder, Wright did nothing to deny it. He did, however, refuse to blame the shoulder for his well below average numbers this year. Wright is batting just .244 with two home runs in his last 44 games since the injury. He is now out with a minor neck issue. Seeing as he won't be healthy until next year, don't count on those numbers going up in September.
