Mets’ Cespedes, Wright both injured
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Mets captain David Wright won’t participate in baseball activities for two months because of back and shoulder issues, another setback in his attempt to return from injuries that have sidelined him for two years, and New York star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is sidelined after hurting a wrist.
New York made the announcements Tuesday, a day after Wright was examined by Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles.
The 35-year-old Wright has been limited to 75 regular-season games during the past three years. He was on the disabled list from April 15 to Aug. 24, 2015, when he strained his right hamstring and then developed spinal stenosis.
The 32-year-old Cespedes hurt his right wrist while swinging in a game on March 6. He was to play Tuesday but was scratched.
