David Wright, who was examined recently in Los Angeles, is recovering well after neck surgery and on track to be ready for Spring Training.
Latest Update (Tues., Sept. 13)
Wright, who was examined last week by Dr. Robert Watkins, is 'healing properly' and the hope is that he'll be ready for Spring Training, Jon Heyman of FanRag reported.
Wright was hoping to be cleared to resume light baseball activities, but it's not yet known what the timetable is for that.
Wright estimates he's at 60 percent mobility with his neck, he told reporters at Citi Field on Aug. 31, he told ESPN New York's Adam Rubin at Citi Field on Aug. 31.
Wright had surgery in mid-June to repair a herniated disc in his neck and is expected to miss the rest of this season.
He told Rubin he should have 95 percent mobility within six months, which is before position players will be asked to report to Spring Training next season.
Wright is also continuing maintenance therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis, which forced him to miss 125 games in 2015.
Wright is due to earn $20 million each of the next two seasons, $15 million in 2019 and $12 million in 2020, after which his current contract will expire.
