New York Mets third baseman David Wright has had quite the extensive injury history, and it will not be any different this year.
He has been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, and there is no timetable for his healing process.
The #Mets have diagnosed David Wright with stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column. They believe he will heal, but it will take time.

The Mets are currently optimistic that Wright’s injury will heal soon, but it sounds like it may be serious, and Wright being 32 years old does him no favors.
Wright has been with the Mets since the 2004 season, and he has been one of their best hitters in franchise history as he has made seven trips to the All-Star Game.
He has hit at least 20 home runs six times in his career, including two seasons where he hit at least 30 while reaching 100 RBIs five times.
However, his health has always been a question mark as he has only had at least 600 at-bats in a season twice despite being a mainstay in the Mets lineup.
The Mets may be forced to shut down Wright for the rest of the season if he does not heal up soon. He has been on the disabled list since the middle of April.
