The New York Mets were in a rebuilding mode, planning for next year. 2014 was about seeing who can play in the big leagues and planning for the future. Their 2014 plans took a major hit this week when they announced that star 3B David Wright (Chesapeake) is out for the remainder of the season due to shoulder inflammation in his left rotator cuff, which Wright believes happened in June when he jammed his shoulder sliding headfirst on a muddy field. The Mets do not believe that their start third baseman will need surgery; instead, Wright will rest and recuperate, then start a rehabilitation program.
David Wright batted .269 with 8 HR and 63 RBIs in 134 games this year.
