David Wright will apparently avoid surgery on his bruised left rotator cuff, but a re-examination on Monday could determine if he can avoid a trip to the disabled list.
Terry Collins said on Sunday that he is hopeful a DL trip will not be necessary.
“With what they said yesterday, I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Collins said according to ESPN New York. “But he could walk in tomorrow and still have discomfort and they can say, ‘Well, you’re going to have to rest it longer.’ That may lead in a different direction. I’m not planning on that.
“Tomorrow will have a lot to say. If he’s not significantly better due to the rest the last couple of days, then I think we need to talk about the possibility of maybe putting him on the DL.”
David Wright hurt his shoulder a couple of weeks ago but was able to tough it out and continue to play. However he reaggravated it on Thursday and has not played since. An MRI Saturday showed it was just a bruise.
