David Wright is slugging .385 during a current 10-game hitting streak before being scratched.

Mets third baseman David Wright had an MRI that showed a bruised rotator cuff that will not require a trip to the disabled list, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin tweeted.

The seven-time All-Star was not in the Mets' lineup the last two days against the Pirates but he will be reexamined Monday, according to Rubin, who added that an infielder will not be called-up as a replacement.

As Rubin previously reported, Wright had been experiencing discomfort in his non-throwing shoulder since June 12 when he slid headfirst on a steal at muddy Citi Field. 

Wright, 33, is hitting .277/.333/.396 with six home runs and 41 RBI. He is slugging .385 during a current 10-game hitting streak.
