Wright absence looks like it will continue

By Adam Rubin

NEW YORK -- Mets manager Terry Collins offered no indication David Wright would return to the lineup for Monday's matinee series finale against the Cubs.

Wright departed Saturday's game after six innings, after being struck in his already injured left shoulder with an 88 mph fastball from Dan Straily.

He did not appear in Sunday's game, nor did he speak with the media pregame or postgame. A team spokesman said Wright was getting treatment. The spokesman added that Wright did not require any MRIs or other tests.
