Earlier this week the Mets indicated that the plan was for third baseman David Wright to return from his shoulder injury Friday, but he remains out of the lineup for today’s game against the Rangers.

That means the Mets will have essentially played with a 24-man roster for a week in the hopes of Wright avoiding the disabled list and a required two-week absence, so this could mean he’ll wind up on the shelf anyway.

Eric Campbell continues to fill in at third base for Wright, who had a 10-game hitting streak before being shut down with a bruised left rotator cuff.

    Sandy, just put him on the DL till after the All Star Game. The alternative makes no sense to me.

    Just put him on the DL and call Flores back up

    Such a stupid move not to have put him on the DL. You are killing your roster flexibility. Its moves like these that continues to put this team in the basement. You have now officially wasted a week.

    So frustrating to be a Met fan, but thankfully they have killed much of my fandom. Can’t bring myself to care that much anymore.
