Mets' David Wright Flies Back To New York For Medical Attention

New York Mets third baseman David Wright has flown back to New York for an examination of his left rib cage, according to MLB.com.

Wright has been feeling stiffness in the rib cage area for over a week now; the Mets were already planning to keep him sidelined this week, but he's now headed home and maybe receiving a cortisone injection as well. There's no timetable for his return to the Mets.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson described a potential cortisone injection as "possible, maybe even likely." Wright was originally going to stay in Florida to be examined by team physician Dr. Struan Coleman, but his situation now requires more advanced treatment.

"We'll just have to see what the doctor says," Alderson said.
