David Wright Suffers Setback, Shut Down For 2 Months

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (WFAN) -- David Wright's latest comeback bid will have to wait.

The Mets announced Tuesday that the third baseman is being held out of baseball activities for two months because of back and shoulder issues.

It's the latest setback for the 35-year-old Mets captain, who missed all of last season and has played in just 75 games over the past three seasons.

In September, Wright underwent surgery to repair his right rotator cuff and then was back in the operating room a month later for a laminotomy procedure on his lower back.

Wright has three years and $47 million remaining on his contract. The Mets signed Todd Frazier as a free agent this offseason to start at third base.
