David Wright said he was embarrassed to go on the disabled list with a concussion and vows to return again this season. His target date is Sept. 1, at Colorado, when he’s eligible.
Wright said he feels fine and is symptom free after his headache cleared.
“I’m sure I’m going to play again this year,” Wright said. “I feel like I have a lot of energy and my mind’s clear and I feel good. And, that’s the most important thing.”
Actually, the most important thing is he stays that way.
People handle injuries differently and there’s no guarantee Wright will experience the same problems as Ryan Church, especially since the Mets are taking an aggressive treatment approach and immediately putting him on the disabled list.
Wright could very well play again this season without incident. Then again, he could play again and have something go wrong. Right now, there just seems no purpose to it unless Wright has some underlying confidence issues about getting back in the batter’s box.
Right now, I just don’t see the point.
