Mets’ David Wright Goes on Disabled List With Back Fracture

May 18 (Bloomberg) -- New York Mets third baseman David Wright will be put on the 15-day disabled list today with a stress fracture in his lower back, an injury that occurred about one month ago.

The fracture was discovered during a scan two days ago and confirmed by further tests.

Wright, 28, will have no baseball activity for 10 days before being re-evaluated at the Manhattan-based Hospital for Special Surgery, the Mets said yesterday in a news release.

The five-time Major League Baseball All-Star was injured April 19 when he dove to make a tag at third base, Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson said. Wright has a .226 batting average this season, with six home runs, 18 runs batted in and nine stolen bases.

The Mets will replace Wright on the roster with infielder Nick Evans from their Triple-A minor-league affiliate in Buffalo.

Last night’s Mets game against the Florida Marlins at Citi Field in New York was postponed because of rain. It’s been rescheduled for July 18, which was a day off for both teams.
