David Wright Injury Update: Wright Has a Broken Right Pinkie

Just when it all looked so promising for the New York Mets, this happens.

During Tuesday night's game, the Mets made an announcement that third baseman David Wright sustained a broken right pinkie on the middle joint.

Wright apparently injured himself diving back into first base on a pick-off attempt Monday night against Washington. At first it was only thought to be a jammed finger, but x-rays revealed a slight fracture.

For now, Wright has been put in a splint and will be re-evaluated on Wednesday for further results. A presumed timetable can be expected Friday, after a hand specialist can look at the x-ray results, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN.com.

Manager Terry Collins hasn't made any declarations yet whether or not Wright will have to go on the DL, or if he can play through the pain while it heals.

Wright says that while he doesn't want to go on the DL, he realizes it may be inevitable if he has to sit for a little bit.

"If I can't play sooner rather than later, I understand. They can't go and be down a man for 10 days or so," Wright said about the DL. "I want to get out there and play as soon as possible. I guess, ultimately, it's not my call, because if I'm not available and still on the roster, we're down a man. ... Obviously, I don't want to go on the DL. No one ever wants to go on the DL. But sometimes it just works out that way. Hopefully, that's not the case this time."

For now, the Mets and Wright play the waiting game.

Mets Vs. Nationals, Game 2 Preview: Dillion Gee Will Try To Keep Things Rolling For New York

The Amazin' Mets? Try the "Rolling" Mets. That's what the best baseball team, at least for now, in New York should be called entering its Tuesday match-up with the Washington Nationals (7:05 p.m. on SNY) at Citi Field. The Mets will try to earn their fifth straight victory to start the season, a mark last reached in 1985.

The pitcher trying to help the Mets extended their streak will be young-hurler Dillon Gee, who earned 13 wins and was 3-0 with a 3.02 ERA against the Nats' last season.

On Monday, New York (4-0) kept its record unblemished by using a walk-off single by Daniel Murphy in the bottom of the ninth inning. Murphy's heroic hit followed another solid start by a Mets' starting pitcher, this time by Mike Pelfrey who tossed 5 2/3-innings allowing two earned runs while striking out eight.

Opposing Gee will be another young-hurler Ross Detwiler who was a surprise to make the Nationals five-man rotation.

This contest will be the middle game of a three-game set, which will conclude Wednesday afternoon.
