David Wright was scratched from Friday night's lineup and is being sent to New York for an MRI on his ailing left shoulder.
Wright indicated he had been experiencing discomfort in his non-throwing shoulder for three weeks, since sliding headfirst on a steal on June 12 on a muddy surface at Citi Field. Video shows Wright uncomfortably moving the shoulder as he led off second base immediately after that slide.
The shoulder became painful during Thursday's series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates, first as he reached to tag out former teammate Ike Davis on a fourth-inning rundown, then further while reaching for Pedro Alvarez's ground ball in the eighth.
Eric Campbell replaced Wright in Friday's lineup.
