Mets Missing Bats Still Rehabbing
There is still no firm date for the return of David Wright and Travid d'Arnaud to the Mets lineup. Both are still rehabbing their respective injuries at a team facility in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
Wright has been out for more than a month for what started as a strained hamstring. Then, just before his expected return, he has feeling back pain. While an MRI showed no structural damage to his back, he's still feeling discomfort, NJ.com reports.
Meanwhile, d'Arnaud broke a finger after being hit by a pitch in late April. After initially fearing he'd miss six weeks of action, the Mets thought his return date would be somewhere in the range of three weeks. But, that hasn't panned out and the backstop just recently began swinging a bat again.
The Mets could use the help offensively, they've been shut out four times in May and have struggled for run production for the last month.
