Wright has stress fracture in back

The hits just keep on coming for the Mets. With Ike Davis, Angel Pagan, Chris Young and Johan Santana currently on the disabled list -- not to mention the injury to Jason Bay had to begin the season or the issues Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran have battled -- there are few teams that seem more snake-bitten with injuries to marquee players.

Add David Wright to the above list.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters Monday afternoon that Wright has a stress fracture in his lower back. The Mets are currently seeking a second opinion before placing Wright on the disabled list, but if the diagnosis holds, he'll rest for 10 days before resuming baseball activities and working his way back to the diamond. "We're not talking about something long term," Alderson told reporters. (ESPN New York via Twitter)

Wright reportedly suffered it when he dove to tag Carlos Lee out at third base last week and has been trying to work through the pain since.

Wright was said to be surprised by the diagnosis, though it's not a really good bet he knows much about injuries. He's only been on the DL once in his entire career. His games played per season since 2005 read: 160, 154, 160, 160, 144, 157. He's hitting .226 with six home runs, 18 RBI, 23 runs and a .741 OPS in 39 games this season.

With Wright absent from the lineup, Jose Reyes is the Mets' only opening day starter still starting in the infield. With Willie Harris at third, Justin Turner at second and Daniel Murphy at first, it's definitely a patch-work bunch.

Terrible injury for Mr. Wright. They better get it to heal correctly and give him the necessary time or this injury could plague him for the rest of the season and maybe career. Get it right and get him healed!
