David Wright Recent Updates

March 27th 2012

Since holding back in Spring Traning due to an abdominal tear, David Wright has slowly come back and looked good the past few games.

David Wright Analysis

From my perspective, it usually takes a lot of time for people to come back from lower-back injuries, and less they are young and have had a good health track record, these type of injuries are recurring or susceptible for a player their entire career. Wright seems to be the mold of oft-injured, and now with his oblique tear he doesn’t seem to have 2012 as a comeback season in his resume.

In an article during March 2012 of Spring Training DJ Short of Rotoworld had this to say:

“Perhaps we should give Wright somewhat of a pass for last year, but I’m still a bit concerned about a guy who is playing through a tear in his abdominal muscle when others (Ryan Zimmerman, Nick Markakis) eventually opted for surgery. His combination of speed and power is still valuable — and the fences moving in at Citi Field should help his cause — but I currently have him behind Jose Bautista, Evan Longoria, Adrian Beltre and Zimmerman in my personal rankings at third base.”
