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.

David Wright homered Monday as the Mets edged the Braves 4-3 in 11 innings.

Wright's homer came in the third. The winning run scored in the 11th when Ruben Tejada singled in Juan Lagares. Wright's homer was his first since June 19 and just his seventh this season. It was a solo shot, and he still hasn't had a multi-RBI game since June 2.

Wright returns after missing seven consecutive games due to a bruised rotator cuff on his right shoulder. Eric Campbell, who handled the bulk of the playing time in his absence, will return to a reserve role.

David Wright (shoulder) is not being placed on the disabled list yet.

There was speculation that he was headed there after he was held out of the lineup again Friday for the seventh straight game. Wright needs to test out his shoulder with some defensive drills, but the rain Friday means he won't be able to try it out until Saturday. The Mets will make a decision at that time whether or not to DL the third baseman.

David Wright (shoulder) remained out of the Mets' lineup on Friday.

The Mets played a man short for a week in anticipation of Wright being ready to play Friday, but obviously he's still not feeling up to it. There's no official word from the club yet, but there would seem to be a good chance of him being placed on the disabled list. Eric Campbell is handling third base again Friday.

David Wright has flown back to New York to undergo an MRI on his left shoulder.

Wright has apparently been dealing with the injury for the past three weeks. He'll undergo the MRI on Saturday in New York, so he doesn't figure to be able to get back to Pittsburgh and in the lineup until Sunday, at the earliest. Obviously, a lot will depend on what the MRI says. Eric Campbell is at third base Friday.

David Wright went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Wright provided the only offense Zack Wheeler would need, homering off of rookie Andrew Heaney in the first inning. Power has been tough to come by for the third baseman, as he is slashing a meager .266/.328/.377 with six home runs and 36 RBI on the season. His OPS had fallen below .700 entering the contest.
