David Wright will travel to California to see a back specialist in an effort to gain clarity on the back issue that has kept him out of the lineup.
Wright will meet with Dr. Robert Watkins and his staff of physical therapists in California to seek treatment for the back pain and spinal stenosis that he kept him from playing for the New York Mets, according to Sandy Alderson.
He will spend a week with the specialist and his staff and that the Mets hope to get further clarity on Wright's status in the next two or three days.
"We hope that with this week of rest that he will be able to resume his progression," Alderson said. "This has been a stop-start proposition for us from the beginning."
