Wright is still dealing with shoulder soreness, which suggests his absence could extend past Sunday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Wright is still not at 100 percent, and the Mets have little motivation to force him into action before he's ready. It sounds like the third baseman could easily miss at least another game or two, so look for Eric Campbell to see increased run in the short term.

Wright (shoulder) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Wright has been dealing with a sore shoulder, and was expected to receive Sunday off. Eric Campbell will take over at the hot corner, and is a likely candidate to do so more frequently moving forward. With the Mets seemingly out of the NL Wild Card race, expect Wright to receive routine maintenance days over the final part of the season. His last day off was all the way back on July 4.

Wright (shoulder) will likely receive a day off Sunday, with the potential to rest longer if he's still experiencing soreness in the area, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

The Mets are at a point in their season where Wright's long-term health is more important than squeezing extra games out of him during the final six weeks of the season when there are still six years left on his contract. Eric Campbell will likely see an uptick in playing time in Wright's absence.

Wright went 2-for-4 Wednesday, extending his hit streak to 12 games, but beyond the hits, there is little positive about the streak.

In those 12 games, Wright has just one extra base hit and his OPS has actually fallen from .721 to .718. In the last month, Wright has just one home run and 13 RBI and is on pace to hit just 13 home runs with 76 runs batted in for the season.

Wright went 1-for-3 with two walks in the Mets' 2-1, 11-inning win over the Phillies on Saturday.

Wright is still struggling at the plate, both in terms of average and power, as he has no home runs since the All-Star break. Despite his problems at the dish, look for Wright to be in the lineup just about daily.

David Wright went 4-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs in a win over the Marlins on Friday.

It was the 19th four-hit game of his career. Wright has hit safely in each of his last five games, so it looks like the time off for his shoulder was just what the doctored ordered. His overall numbers still aren't on par with what we've seen from him in the past, so fantasy owners will have to hope that he can keep it going in the second half.

David Wright walked twice and knocked in a run with a single in four plate appearances in Thursday's loss against the Braves.
