David Wright


Wright signed a six-year $55 million contract extension with the New York Mets Sunday. The Mets' third baseman is hitting .308 with 22 home runs and 82 RBIs this season. He has stolen 11 bases and was also voted the starting third baseman for the NL All-Star team


Wright went 0-for-5 for the Mets in a 6-5 win over the Florida Marlins on Wednesday. The third baseman has gone 2-for-17 (.118) with no extra base hits or RBIs in his last four games.


Wright was selected to his first All-Star team Sunday and will start at third base for the National League. He is hitting .324 with 18 homers and 66 RBIs this season.


Wright hit a pair of two-run homers as New York beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-2 on Thursday.


Wright hit a home run in his third consecutive game when he hit a three-run shot in a 5-4 Mets' win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. The third baseman has gone 15-for-38 (.395) with four homers and 12 RBIs in the last nine games.


Wright went 2-for-5 with two solo shots and three runs scored in the Mets' 7-6 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. The third baseman has gone 12-for-34 (.412) with five doubles, seven RBIs and seven runs in the last eight games.


Wright went 4-for-4 with two doubles and two RBIs in the Mets' 7-4 win over the Florida Marlins on Saturday, after missing Friday's 5-1 loss with back spasms. The 23-year-old third baseman is 14-for-32 (.438) with three homers and eight RBIs in his last seven games.


Wright went 3-for-5 with his third homer of the season in the Mets' 13-4 win over the Washington Nationals on Thursday. New York banged out 16 hits -- four of those home runs -- and moved to 7-1 on the season.


Wright became the first player in Mets history to drive in a run in each of the club's first five games of a season. The third baseman had three RBIs against the Marlins on Sunday and is batting .474 with two homers and nine RBIs through the first five games.


Wright finished a triple shy of hitting for the cycle in Wednesday's victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks, going 4-for-5 with two solo home runs and four runs scored. The Mets' third baseman, who now has three four-hit games and a trio of multihomer games in his major league career, also extended his current hitting streak to six games. Over that span, he is batting .500 (13-for-26).


Wright bumped his season batting average above .300 for the first time since June 10, going 4-for-5 with a double, home run, six RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's victory over the San Diego Padres. The Mets' third baseman matched career highs with his hit and RBI totals.


Wright extended his hitting streak to 13 games, going 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Colorado Rockies. Over that span, the Mets' third baseman is batting .408 with four doubles, four homers, eight RBI and one stolen base.


Wright belted a pair of solo home runs in Thursday's 6-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves, notching the second multihomer game of his major league career. The Mets' third baseman sent a Horacio Ramirez pitch over the center-field wall in the second inning before going deep to left-center in the fourth. He also walked and scored three times.


Wright's bruised left foot was feeling well enough for him to return to the Mets' lineup for Wednesday's meeting with the Chicago Cubs. The third baseman, who fouled a ball off his foot during Monday's action, sat out on Tuesday as a precautionary measure. He should be fine going forward, especially with Thursday's offday available to rest.

Wright went 1-for-4 with a strikeout in Wednesday's game and now is batting .255 with six home runs and 17 RBI in 33 contests this season.


Wright was sore and stiff after fouling a ball of his left foot on Monday, so the Mets decided to hold him out of Tuesday night's meeting with the Chicago Cubs. The third baseman was replaced in the lineup by Chris Woodward. Precautionary X-rays on the foot were negative, and Wright currently is listed as day-to-day.

With Thursday off, the team might choose to keep Wright out of action on Wednesday as well, in hopes of having him available for their weekend series with the St. Louis Cardinals. In 32 games this season, he is batting .255 with six home runs and 17 RBI.


After seeing his batting average dip to .195, Wright got on track in Tuesday's victory over the Philadelphia Phillies, going 2-for-4 with a walk, three runs scored and the first grand slam of his major league career. For the season, Wright is batting .222 with three home runs and seven RBI in 13 games, but has struck out 12 times in 45 at-bats.

Despite his slow start, the sky is the limit for Wright. The 22-year-old made his debut last season and batted .293 with 14 home runs, 40 RBI and six stolen bases in 69 games. He should be at the hot corner for the Mets for many years to come.
