Mets' assistant general manager John Ricco said 3B David Wright has been shut down from his throwing program, according to Abbey Mastracco of NJ.com.
The extent of Wright's rehabilitation at this point is limited to working with the team's physical therapists in New York, according to Ricco, and there is no timetable for his return. He is currently on the 60-day disabled list.
Wright's latest setback comes almost a month after he was able to field grounders, toss lightly, and take batting practice. He has been sidelined since March 2 with a shoulder impingement, but subsequently suffered lower back discomfort.
Wright has a career .296 batting average with 242 home runs and 970 RBI. In 37 games for the Mets in 2016, Wright hit .226 with seven home runs and 14 RBI.
