Wright Almost ready to swing
David Wright, who finished the season inactive because of "weak" and "stretched-out" ligaments that failed to hold his non-throwing shoulder in place, is nearing completion of a rehab program intended to strengthen the area.
Wright is due to see a team doctor within two weeks, hoping to gain clearance to begin swinging a bat.
Testing the shoulder while swinging will determine whether it is stable enough to avoid surgery. Wright experienced looseness in the shoulder before getting shut down following a Sept. 8 game.
"Everything is going well and progressing, so hopefully I'll get good news then," Wright told ESPNNewYork.com about the planned doctor visit.
A statistical comparison was taken by ESPN for the platform seasons (year heading into second arbitration) and careers to that point of Lucas Duda, Brandon Moss and Garrett Jones.
