Latest Update Wright drives in 51st run Wednesday Thu Jul, 24, 06:42 AM
An elite offensive third baseman, he's a doubles machine who consistently bats for a high average and a good baserunner who piles up steals & rarely gets caught. Also takes walks and is a clutch RBI guy.
Flaws: : Makes a few too many errors at the hot corner. Sometimes presses too much at the plate, leading to high strikeout totals and big hitting slumps. At times, his motivation gets questioned because of his laidback ways.
Wright registered his second multi-hit performance over his last three games on Wednesday as he continues to try and bounce back from a rather underwhelming first half. He is now slashing .280/.340/.407 with eight home runs and 51 RBI through 378 a-bats while owning a five year-low 47.3 AB/HR. There is still time for him to turn things around, but 15 home runs is an optimistic yet obtainable mark for the Mets captain at this point. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Wright logged his first hit of the second half on Sunday and it couldn't have come at a better time for the Mets, as he was able to keep them in the game despite falling one run short of taking the series. The 2014 season certainly hasn't been what Wright owners would have expected from this former Silver Slugger, slashing .273/.338/.410 with only eight home runs and 49 RBI while owning a career-worst 0.43 K:BB and 45.8 AB/HR which is a five-year high. Whether or not he is able to break out of this extended slump is anyone's guess, but those who remain optimistic could get him at a very low price if able to find an owner ready to cut bait.

Wright isn't going to the All Star Game, so he'll have the full four days to rest after receiving the cortisone shot. While things could certainly turn around for him early on in the second, the lingering shoulder problems are definitely a concern as they are obviously affecting his overall power output. He turned things around with his batting average and OBP towards the end of the first half, but that really only does so much for fantasy owners who were expecting a lot more power and a little more speed from him this year.Analyst: Howard Bender
Wright has been doing all things right at the plate going into the All-Star Break. The face of the Mets current franchise now has at least on hit in 17 of his last 19 games and is hitting .375 (27-for-72) with 10 doubles, four home runs and 15 RBI over that span.rnAnalyst: Michael Pichan
