Mets' David Wright is diagnosed with stenosis

Seven-time All-Star third baseman David Wright has been diagnosed with stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column, the New York Mets announced Saturday.

The Mets said Wright will be shut down for at least another week. He hasn't played since mid-April.

Wright will rest for at least a week before being reassessed.

"It's just something that seems to be taking longer than we initially thought," said John Ricco, Mets assistant general manager. "The way it was progressing, [doctors] thought it would be gone by now."
