On Saturday, it was reported David Wright has been diagnosed with spinal stenosis.  He has been shut down from baseball activities for the second time this month.

Dilson Herrera presently sports a splint on his right middle finger.  He is unable to grip a bat or baseball, but that has not precluded him from running and fielding grounders at the team’s complex at Port St. Lucie.

Travis d’Arnaud is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment, perhaps midway through the upcoming week.  He last played on April 19th.

Lucas Duda and Juan Lagares did not start Sunday’s series finale in Pittsburgh.

Duda is nursing a tender right hamstring.  He pulled up grabbing the back of his leg after sliding into second base during the 4th inning of Saturday’s game.

As Adam Ruben puts it, Juan Lagares has never fully shaken the elbow issue that caused him to be shut down in mid-September last season.  He is also nursing a strain underneath his armpit that flares up.

Dillon Gee will make one more rehab appearance for Binghamton on Wednesday, and will then be promoted back to the big club to form a transient 6-man starting rotation which will include Noah Syndergaard.
