David Wright received an injection in his neck on Tuesday from team doctors. Terry Collins said the shot needs 48 hours to take effect, so it looks like Wright is active but unavailable for this series. Wright has a herniated disk in the neck. "I think it's serious," Collins said. Collins noted Bobby Parnell had the same issue and didn't respond well. The Mets decided to keep Wright active for another couple of days to see if the injection works rather than DL'ing him now.

Jeff Walters will be removed from the 40-man roster to create the spot for James Loney. Eric Campbell has been optioned to Las Vegas. The Mets apparently will keep David Wright active, which comes as a surprise given what people in the know were saying a few hours earlier.

Eric Campbell has been demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas. The Mets needed to open a roster spot for the activation of James Loney. It's unclear if there is still a separate move regarding David Wright, or those are the lone moves and Wright will remain active.

Alex Rodriguez is on the bench for a second consecutive game, which could be the start of a trend. Rodriguez is hitting .170 with six homers and 14 RBIs in 24 games this year. Since he returned from his hamstring injury last week, he has just one hit in 16 at-bats. It was a home run. He has struck out nine of his 16 times at-bats. Over his last 75 games, dating back to last year, A-Rod is batting .180 with 15 homers and 40 RBIs. Against Tuesday's Blue Jays starter J,A. Happ A-Rod is 0-for-15 in his career. Carlos Beltran is DHing, while Rob Refsnyder is in right and Aaron Hicks is in left. The struggling Brett Gardner is also on the bench.
