David Wright
Birthdate: 12/20/1982 (34 y, 3 m, 4 d)     Bats/Throws: R/R     Height/Weight: 6-0/205     Position: 3B
Drafted: 2001 June Amateur Draft - Round: 1s, Pick: 8, Overall: 38, Team: New York Mets
Contract: $138M / 8 Years (2013 - 2020)
RotoWire News: Wright (shoulder) could begin throwing a baseball again in a couple of weeks, the New York Post reports. "I've got to finish the shoulder program that our team doctors have given me to complete,'' Wright said Friday. "Once that's completed then we'll try throwing again and hopefully it's relatively pain free.'' (3/18/2017)

Profile: David Wright lost nearly the entire 2016 season with the third major back/spine injury of his career, this time he requiring a spinal fusion for a herniated disc in his neck. There is mixed optimism and realism surrounding his return for the 2017 season, with Wright openly admitting there are questions regarding his ability to perform in the future. He will have a normal, full off season to prepare for the 2017 season, which suggests he should, at least, enter spring training with as good a bill of health as he can have at this point in his career. While healthy in 2016, Wright provided borderline elite offense, suggesting the spinal stenosis had done little to limit his swing, at least in short stints. It remains to be seen how he will respond to this fusion procedure. When healthy, we know Wright has an outstanding bat, one you would liken to Hall of Fame level production, but his health problems are so serious that he could easily be limited to fewer than 200 PA for the third consecutive season. (Andrew Perpetua)

The Quick Opinion: Wright is worth a gamble in the later rounds of the draft assuming he’s healthy enough to start the season. I have no doubt in my mind that, when healthy, he will provide elite offense. He may not remain healthy for long, but that shouldn’t stop you from taking advantage of the time he’s on the field.
