Mets 3B Wright to miss Braves series, no DL

ATLANTA (AP) Mets manager Terry Collins says there is ''zero'' thought of placing David Wright on the disabled list though the third baseman will remain in New York and miss the three-game series with the Braves.

Wright, who has a bruised left rotator cuff, was examined in New York on Monday. Collins said the exam ''went OK.''

Collins says Wright will receive more treatment on his non-throwing shoulder. Collins says he hopes Wright will be ready to play on Friday, when the Mets open a weekend home series against Texas.

Wright was scratched from Friday night's lineup against Pittsburgh and also was held out Saturday and Sunday. He is hitting .277 with six homers and 41 RBIs.

Rookie Eric Campbell is starting at third base and hitting fourth against the Braves on Monday night.
