News: Wright (shoulder) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season, but he will not require surgery, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports. Impact: After an MRI Tuesday revealed persistent inflammation in the rotator cuff in his left shoulder, the team decided to shut him down for the rest of the season to begin the process of resting the inflamed shoulder. Once the inflammation dies down, Wright will begin a six-week rehabilitation program to strengthen the shoulder, and since he is not expected to require surgery, he should be ready for Opening Day 2015. His eight home runs this season mark a career low, as does his .324 OBP and .374 SLG. Wright was likely bothered by injuries for much of the season, so there's certainly reason to be optimistic that he can rebound in 2015. However, as he enters his age-32 season, it's likely that his best years are behind him.(RotoWire, )

News: Wright is out of the lineup Tuesday and will undergo another examination on his shoulder, Adam Rubin on ESPNNewYork.com reports. Impact: With Wright's left shoulder presenting issues yet again, the team will send him for another follow-up on the troublesome area. Wright initially bruised his rotator cuff in June and the issue was aggravated in mid-August after he was hit by a pitch. Eric Campbell will step in at third base and the three-hole in the order Tuesday, while Wright should be considered day-to-day until the results of his exam are made public.(RotoWire, )
