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

Wright looked to be on the fence for playing Thursday, but after doctors signed off on the health of his neck following batting practice, he was cleared to rejoin the lineup. The captain missed the previous two games due to a muscle spasm on the right side of his neck.

Wright (neck), who is out of the lineup for the second straight game Wednesday against the Braves could return to action Thursday, ESPN New York reports.

Wright received treatment Tuesday and was able to take batting practice Wednesday in the cages and on the field. If he progresses enough overnight, there is a chance that Wright will be in the lineup Thursday.

Wright (neck) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

Wright will miss his second straight game as he continues to deal with a muscle spams on the side of his neck. The Mets will proceed cautiously with him, and there's no indication when he might reenter the lineup.

Wright (neck) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Wright left Sunday's game with a muscle spasm on the right side of his neck, and the injury will cause him to miss Tuesday's contest as well. The origin of the injury is unclear, but he is still considered day-to-day at this point.

Wright was removed from Sunday's game against the Dodgers with a muscle spasm on the right side of his neck.

It's not certain how the injury came about, but there's a chance it might be related to the shoulder soreness he first experienced just over a week ago. Fortunately, the Mets will have an open date in the schedule Monday, which may be all the time he needs to recover from the issue.

Wright's nightmarish season continued Saturday, as he went 0-for-5, including a pair of strikeouts while also grounding into two double-plays.

Wright also had the ignominy of having Daniel Murphy walked in front of him so that the Dodgers could face Wright with runners-on-base rather than Murphy. It worked out well for LA, as Wright struck out ending the inning. Wright is vulnerable to breaking pitches on the outer half, but because he is also struggling getting around on fastballs, moving closer to the plate would not rectify either situation. His .323 on-base and .368 slugging percentage are the worst of his career by far and each show no signs of rising, as he is 2-for-his-last-29 with no extra-base hits in his last 60 at-bats.

Wright (shoulder) is back in the lineup for Monday afternoon's game against the Cubs.

Wright tested the shoulder out in batting practice Monday morning before the game and apparently was given clearance to play.

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.
