Cespedes, Wright out for season

David Wright #5 of the New York Mets

Mets third baseman David Wright's hopes of returning to the major leagues this season took a major hit Monday when the Mets announced he was shutting down his rehab assignment after experiencing pain in his shoulder.

The banged-up Mets announced on Monday that Wright was returning to NY to be re-examined later this week.

The most ominous news was that Wright, who had been playing in minor league rehabilitation games in Florida, was shut down because of a recurrence of shoulder pain. He's battled through spinal stenosis, surgery to fix a herniated disc, and most recently an impingement in his right shoulder. "So I chose to go to the doctor and get it checked out", Wright said in a statement. He was the designated hitter in that game but played third base on Friday and Saturday.

The club also announced that Yoenis Cespedes' season is over after an MRI confirmed the diagnosis of a right hamstring strain. With a recovery timeline of six weeks and the Mets out of postseason contention, the injury effectively ends the slugger's season.

The infielder had just started a rehab assignment, playing in three games and going 1-for-10.

Starter Matt Harvey, who has been out since mid-June with a stress injury in his right shoulder, is expected to return from the disabled list on Friday against the Houston Astros.

Also, Michael Conforto was examined by team doctors and will receive a second opinion on his left shoulder, which sustained a dislocation and tear in the posterior capsule last week as he swung and missed at a pitch.

Noah Syndergaard, rehabbing from a torn lat, is expected go throw a bullpen session on Wednesday and could be nearing a rehab start in an attempt to rejoin the Mets in September.
