David Wright cleared to play after examination

Whether he’ll be in the lineup Friday is still to be determined, but David Wright has been cleared to play after seeing a hand specialist for the second straight day on Thursday.

Wright’s status for Friday against the Phillies will be a game-time decision.

Wright has missed two games since breaking his right pinkie finger diving into a base on Monday night. The finger won’t be pain-free for weeks yet, so it’s simply a matter of how much pain Wright can tolerate if he wants to play. The guess is that he’ll give it a try Friday. However, if that doesn’t go well, he could miss some additional time afterwards.

    Dr. Collins was correct and his fellow doctors agreed that there was to much money involved to sit him.

    You think a broken pinkie is nothing? I’ve had a broken pinkie, and it’s NOT nothing (and that’s without having to swing a bat or throw across an infield).

    As the old saying goes, never criticize a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.

      You were never paid 16M dollars to play with a broken pinkey. Sorry, I play ball, had broken fingars and they never stop me from taking the mound.

    I’m glad they gave him the okay to play. I just don’t want him to risk further damage if he gets into severe pain he should leave the game. We need him to be healthy for the season. Good Luck David.
