Even after all of his injuries, David Wright is one of the biggest wild cards on the Mets going into the 2017 season.

Battling a herniated disc last year and spinal stenosis in 2015, —something he’ll have to deal with for the rest of his playing career — Wright will have to learn how to deal with the issues if he wants to continue playing for the Mets.

One of the biggest issues surrounding Wright other than his durability is the assurance from upper management that he will be the starting 3rd baseman going into the season.

While expectations have to be realistic with how much Wright can play next season, there is surely a domino effect. If Wright can’t play, we will most likely see Jose Reyes play most of the season at 3rd, shifting Curtis Granderson to the everyday center fielder role — if he isn’t traded in the upcoming weeks — which might not be the Mets top choice.
