Mets third baseman David Wright did not take his position at third base in the bottom of the third inning. He had singled and scored in the top half, but Eric Campbell entered the game at his position at the hot corner.

ESPN’s Adam Rubin, quoting an SNY report, says Wright left due to neck spasms. It’s not yet known if Wright will have to miss any time due to the injury. Wright has also been dealing with shoulder problems recently.

Wright has had a tough year, mustering only a .265/.323/.368 slash line with eight home runs and 56 RBI. He has struggled particularly recently, notching just two hits — both singles — in his last 29 plate appearances dating back to August 15.

    You know he had to be hurting to come out at all, plus he owns Correia, he even got a hit earlier which is unusual lately. Really hard to watch him right now, on Saturday he had 2 k’s and 2 gidp and they intentionally walked the go ahead run to get to him.
