"Mets third baseman David Wright is still about two weeks away from throwing as he continues his program to alleviate the pain from his shoulder impingement, he told Kevin Kernan of the New York Post.
"When I first started throwing I could tell it was just not right because I never had that sharp, shooting pain going into my shoulder like that,'' Wright said. "There's just no way of doing what I'm capable of doing at third base and being productive for this team with the pain.''
After going through this shoulder program, Wright said he would begin throwing again, which he would start doing toward the end of March. While he did not think these shoulder issues would happen following his neck surgery from last year, Wright said he is just trying to work toward being able to play third base again.
"I wouldn't say I was expecting that. I was hopeful that things would have gone off without a hitch, but I knew and was told there may be some bumps in the road,'' he said. "It's neck surgery. I was very excited about the progression I got right after the surgery. It's just that last hurdle kind of got me. Now it's a question of clearing that hurdle.""
