The New York Mets could be without the services of third baseman David Wright for more than just one game.
Wright departed Saturday's game in the seventh inning after he was hit in the back by a pitch from Chicago Cubs right-hander Dan Straily.
“It just got me in a spot that’s bothersome,” Wright told the New York Post. “It’s just unlucky.”
The 31-year-old was held out of the lineup Sunday. New York wraps up a four-game series with the Cubs on Monday before traveling to the west coast for a five-game road trip.
