Fantasy Impact: David Wright is looking to play in a minor league game early next week. His injury is progressing and should return to the Mets lineup as soon as late next week barring any setbacks.

Fantasy Impact: We have yet to hear a timetable for Wright, but he is likely still a few weeks away from returning. Owners of Wright should hope for no more setbacks and look to get him back in their lineups by late May or early June.

Fantasy Impact: The Mets placed Wright on the 15-day DL in the middle of April, but that was due to a hamstring injury. The veteran is said be recovering well from that ailment, but he's now dealing with a new one. Considering Wright's age, and the fact that he's dealing with injuries to his hamstring and back, the news is certainly concerning for fantasy owners.

David Wright placed on 15-day DL

David Wright has been placed on the 15-day DL with a mild strain of the right hamstring. The Mets have recalled Eric Campbell from Triple-A Las Vegas (Source: Fox Sports MLB)

Fantasy Impact: Campbell will start in place of Wright at third base tonight and, presumably, for the duration of Wright's DL stint. Travis d'Arnaud has been bumped up in the lineup and is batting second this evening against the Phillies. Wright owners should, of course, make alternate plans at third base during the DL stint. Hopefully Wright will return at the end of the month given that the injury has been deemed "mild."

Mets manager Terry Collins announced after tonight's game that David Wright has been diagnosed with a pulled right hamstring. Collins also referred to the injury as a "major problem". Wright hurt himself and left the game in the bottom of the 8th inning after sliding awkwardly into second base.

Fantasy Impact: This is not the news the Mets or fantasy owners wanted to hear. Pulled hamstrings can last a while depending on the severity. A DL stint is almost certain for Wright.

Fantasy Impact: Obviously this is bad news for the Mets and fantasy owners but hopefully the injury is just minor. We should find out more about Wrights status after the game tonight or by tomorrow.

Mets third baseman David Wright went 3-for-4 with his first home run and stolen base of the season against Atlanta. Wright's two run shot came in the top of the 4th inning. It was Wrights first home run since last July.

Fantasy Impact: Wright struggled going 3-for-13 in the opening series against the Nationals but had a big Friday night in Atlanta. As long as he remains healthy look for Wright to be a solid fantasy contributor across the board.

Fantasy Impact: David Wright had a solid day at the plate and broke the game open in the sixth inning with a two run opposite field single. Wright should be able to continue the momentum into the Atlanta series as the Mets are scheduled to face two left handed starters.

 

New York Mets third baseman David Wright went 0-for-4 today against the Nationals. Wright did contribute a run on a Lucas Duda single in the sixth inning.

Fantasy Impact: Although he went hitless, Wright is coming off a solid spring and should produce good stats as long as he stays healthy this year.

New York Mets third baseman David Wright is batting second in the Mets Opening Day lineup in Washington. Wright usually bats third in the order and this is just the 16th time in his career that he's batting second. (Source: New York Mets on twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It seems like manager Terry Collins wanted to split up lefties Curtis Granderson and Lucas Duda. For Wright, batting second means he may see more fastballs to hit and more opportunities to steal bases.

 

The New York Mets got 10 hits in their 5-0 win over the Texas Rangers on Saturday. David Wright was a major contributor, going 3-for-3 with a walk and an RBI to raise his Grapefruit League average to .283. Wright had struggled much of the spring but could have found his stroke as the regular season gets set to begin.

Fantasy Impact: Wright struggled with a shoulder injury last season, which limited his power. He hit just .269 with eight home runs in 535 at bats. The shoulder hasn't appeared to be an issue this spring. Expect Wright to bounce back and regain some of his power and be a solid option at third base in most fantasy leagues.

David Wright hit his third spring HR today, a 2 run shot in the Mets 4-3 loss to the Astros in Port St. Lucie. Wright now has 3 HRs and 9 RBIs in his last seven games.

Fantasy Impact: After Wright's second spring HR, there was talk that Wright’s power may have returned. While the talk appeared premature, there may now be some truth to it. He managed only 8 HRs last season due to a lingering ligament injury in his left shoulder. With a current FantasyPros ADP of 98 in mixed leagues (87 ECR), he has a potentially high ceiling relative to his draft position - if, of course, he is past the lingering injury and his power has returned.

David Wright connected for his second homer of the spring off of CC Sabathia this afternoon against the Yankees. He finished 1 for 3 with the HR and 2 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Wright currently has a FantasyPros ECR mixed league 3B rank of 11 (92nd overall). With the opposite field HR today, there is talk that Wright’s power may have returned. It is believed to have disappeared in the second half of 2014 due to a ligament injury in his left shoulder. With only 2 HRs this spring, it may be too early to jump to that conclusion. That said, with a current ADP of 98 in mixed leagues, he could outperform this draft position. He has a potentially high ceiling relative to his draft position - but do not overpay/overreach for him in drafts.

It was David Wright's first HR since July 11, 2014 to be exact. He finished the game against the Nationals 1 for 2 with the HR and 3 RBIs.

Fantasy Impact: Wright is looking for a bounce back season coming off a 2014 where he hit only 8 homers and was shut down early due to left shoulder ligament damage. While the shoulder is apparently better, it is questionable what impact last season's injury will have on Wright's power productivity going forward. Wright currently projects as a middle tier 3B in mixed leagues at the deep 3B position. The potential for higher returns from Wright based on his ADP and average auction value is there if he is, in fact, fully recovered from and not impeded by the injury which plagued him last year.
