The Mets are used to sending a talented infielder to the summer classic in recent years, but time missed due to injury and a lengthy slump kept the team’s captain David Wright from being picked to the National League All-Star team this year. Instead, Mets second Baseman Daniel Murphy gets the honor of representing the New York Mets at the All-Star Game in Minnesota next week.

The New York Mets received good news on Monday as third baseman David Wright will not go on the disabled list. 

Manager Terry Collins said the seven time All-Star will miss the three game set with the Atlanta Braves, but should return soon after. Wright had missed the previous three games with a bruised rotator cuff in his left shoulder. 

David Wright - Met for Life

After 50 years of baseball, the Mets finally have their franchise player. David Wright signed an 8-year contract worth $140 million, making him the highest paid player in club history. The deal should bring him to the end of his career in an orange and blue uniform.

Wright is the soft-spoken leader of the squad, able to talk to any of his young teammates and teach them how to handle each situation. On top of that, not only is he the guy that you would want your daughter to marry, but also he may be the most humble athlete in all of sports.
