David Wright: Let’s face it, nothing comes easy with Wright anymore. His most recent injury was diagnosed as right shoulder impingement—with MLB’s injury updates saying he’s due back “possibly 2017”. As of yesterday’s update, Wright is not projected to throw for at least two weeks. Not very promising news coming from the Mets’ captain. With T.J. Rivera’s promising spring and former first-rounder Gavin Cecchini on the brink of the major leagues, the Mets appear to be in the clear to move on without Wright.
Brandon Nimmo: Nimmo suffered a Grade 1 hamstring strain playing for Italy in the World Baseball Classic. He will be placed on the new 10-day Disabled List and is expected to be activated after the minimum 10-day period. He and Lagares could both challenge Conforto and Ty Kelly when they return for their bench spot.
Juan Lagares: Lagares will be placed on the 10-day Disabled List as well due to a left oblique strain he suffered on March 25. He looks to be activated by the end of the month.
Steven Matz: As a result of his elbow inflammation, Matz received a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection and is not expected to throw for about three weeks. A definite scare for the Mets front office, the hope is to get Matz back on the mound sometime in May.
