David Wright Injury Update: Long-Term Contract Situation In Balance As Wright Deals With Latest Injury

The New York Mets believe David Wright's talent is worthy of a contract extension, but have not begun negotiations with the third baseman partially because they are worried about his tendency to get injured, according to the New York Daily News.

Wright, whose contract expires after 2013 with a team option, has suffered a number of injuries lately that have the Mets pondering whether he deserves a long-term, big-money deal. His latest injury, a broken finger, comes in the wake of last season's fractured back and a muscle strain that affected him during spring training.

The Daily News reports that the organization is high on everything Wright can provide, and would love to keep him around if he shows the injuries are an aberration rather than a pattern. But first the 29-year old has to return from his broken pinkie finger and show the ability to stay healthy.
