Wright (neck) is expected to begin baseball activities by the end of December, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright missed the bulk of the past two seasons due to injury woes, but it appears that the veteran is on track to get back on the diamond relatively soon even after undergoing a cervical discectomy and fusion surgery in June. No specific timetable exists for his return, but general manager Sandy Alderson was adamant that Wright will be their starting third baseman, so it seems like the Mets are confident that he should be recovered and ready to go in the not-too-distant future.

Wright (neck) believes he will be ready to go for spring training, James Wagner of the New York Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright underwent a cervical disectomy and fusion surgery in June that left his status for 2016 in doubt. He was eventually moved to the 60-day DL and missed the remainder of the season but the veteran appears confident he will return to the diamond for the start of next year. Wright has played just 75 games combined between 2015 and 2016, making him a risky bet in fantasy leagues even if he's a go to begin the campaign

Wright (neck) will be moved to the 60-day DL on Tuesday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Jose Reyes set to return to the Mets on Tuesday, the move to the 60-day DL will free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Wright remains without a firm return timeline, and it's possible he could miss the entirety of the remainder of the 2016 season after undergoing neck surgery back in mid-June.

Wright (neck) is unsure if he can return this season, James Wagner of the New York Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Two weeks after cervical disectomy and fusion surgery, Wright is saying that he is unsure if he will be able to return in 2016. The 33-year-old also has a condition called spinal stenosis, which narrows the spine and causes pain, weakness, and numbness, that could further delay his recovery time. The third baseman is still a ways away from resuming baseball activities and a return to the majors this season appears highly questionable.

Wright (neck) underwent a successful cervical disectomy and fusion surgery Thursday and no timetable for his return has been released, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright met with team doctors earlier in the week to discuss the course of action regarding his neck injury and ultimately they decided to have him undergo a surgical procedure. The surgery was successful, but the remainder of his season remains in doubt as there is no timetable for his return. Barring a move at the trade deadline, the Mets will likely use a combination of Wilmer Flores, Kelly Johnson, and Matt Reynolds at the hot corner with Wright sidelined.

Wright (neck) will undergo surgery Thursday and is expected to miss several months, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran had initially hoped that rest and rehab would be enough to alleviate the issues in his neck and back, but he'll now opt for surgery, which will likely keep him out for at least three months, possibly threatening the rest of his 2016 season. "After trying every way to get back on the field, I've come to realize that it's best for me, my teammates and the organization to proceed with surgery at this time," Wright said in a statement Thursday. "My neck simply did not respond to any of the treatments of the past few weeks. While incredibly frustrating and disappointing, I am determined to make a full recovery and get back on the field as soon as I can to help the Mets win."

Wright (neck) will meet with team doctors this week to discuss whether the veteran third baseman will require surgery, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although DiComo reports that Wright would likely opt to stick with rehabbing the injury rather than going the surgical route, Wright will nonetheless meet with doctors to determine if surgery is the best option. He was shut down for 6-to-8 weeks when he was placed on the DL on June 3, which means he'd be out until late July or early August in the best case scenario. If surgery ends up being the course of action, it would stretch out that timetable by a significant amount in all likelihood.

The Mets placed Wright (neck) on the disabled list Friday and announced he will rest for 6-to-8 weeks before resuming baseball activities, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported earlier Friday that Wright would be sidelined for at least a month, but the latest update -- which comes straight from the team -- all but rules him out for at least two months, as Wright will need to get back into playing shape once his neck injury has subsided. The best-case scenario has Wright returning to action sometime in early August, but it's certainly possible he could be out several weeks beyond that. The Mets will fill Wright's spot with the combination of Wilmer Flores, Ty Kelly, and Matt Reynolds for now, but it remains to be seen how things will shake out at the hot corner long term.

Wright (neck) is expected to be out at least 4-to-6 weeks, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported Thursday that Wright was facing an extended absence, and the timeline for his return is starting to come into focus. If everything goes well with his recovery he could return around the beginning of July, but with the All-Star break coming just a week after that, it's possible he may not be back until sometime during the season's second half.

Wright (neck) is expected to be out for an extended period, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

He seemed worse off than day-to-day after being diagnosed with herniated disk in his neck, and it now sounds like a DL stint is imminent for Wright. Matt Reynolds is on his way to join the big club in Miami. The Mets are expected to make an official announcement regarding Wright's status either Thursday night or Friday morning.
