Mets 3B David Wright Now Officially Questionable for Opening Day

New York Mets third baseman David Wright confirmed on Thursday that he is in fact dealing with a impingement in his shoulder and has no timetable to return to throwing. 

Said injury usually requires a couple weeks of recovery time. But with Wright's laundry list of injury issues, that timeline itself could be pushed back. 

Wright, 34, posted a .226 average with seven homers and 14 RBI in just 37 games last year. All said, the seven-time All-Star has played in a total of 75 games over the past two seasons. 

If Wright can't start the season as New York's every-day third baseman, Jose Reyes will likely be given the job. Reyes posted a .267 average with eight homers, 24 RBI and nine stolen bases in 60 games for the Mets last season.
