Mets manager Terry Collins expressed "concern" Monday that David Wright may be headed for the disabled list. Wright is dealing with a neck issue and is out of the lineup for a third straight game on Memorial Day. Wright landing on the DL on Tuesday would open the 25-man roster spot for newly acquired James Loney's activation on Tuesday. Loney is expected to arrive in Queens on Monday. The Mets still will need to make a 40-man roster move to fit Loney, even if Wright is placed on the DL.
