Wright is recovering well from his left shoulder injury but he has yet to swing a bat, ESPN New York reports.

Wright may swing a bat later this month, as he is slated to start working with the Mets' new hitting coach, Kevin Long. While surgery to repair the shoulder might have been an option, the progress Wright has made to date and projection for continued and full recovery make it remote that he will need to undergo the knife.

Wright recently underwent a dye contrast MRI, which revealed a ligament issue in his left shoulder, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

Prior MRI exams had revealed persistent inflammation in the rotator cuff in Wright left shoulder, but the more invasive test revealed the ligament issue. The damaged ligament is causing instability in his shoulder and may end up requiring surgery, though Wright reiterated that he hopes to avoid any sort of procedure with a strengthening rehab program. However, if that fails to resolve the issue, Wright and the Mets will need to explore other options.

Wright (shoulder) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season, but he will not require surgery, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports.

After an MRI Tuesday revealed persistent inflammation in the rotator cuff in his left shoulder, the team decided to shut him down for the rest of the season to begin the process of resting the inflamed shoulder. Once the inflammation dies down, Wright will begin a rehabilitation program to strengthen the shoulder, and since he is not expected to require surgery, he should be ready for Opening Day 2015. His eight home runs this season mark a career low, as does his .324 OBP and .374 SLG. Wright was likely bothered by injuries for much of the season, so there's certainly reason to be optimistic that he can rebound in 2015. However, as he enters his age-32 season, it's likely that his best years are behind him.

Wright is out of the lineup Tuesday and will undergo another examination on his shoulder, Adam Rubin on ESPNNewYork.com reports.

With Wright's left shoulder presenting issues yet again, the team will send him for another follow-up on the troublesome area. Wright initially bruised his rotator cuff in June and the issue was aggravated in mid-August after he was hit by a pitch. Eric Campbell will step in at third base and the three-hole in the order Tuesday, while Wright should be considered day-to-day until the results of his exam are made public.

Wright (neck) is back in the lineup Thursday, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports.
