The Steelers have made re-signing Brown, who is in the final year of a six-year, $43 million contract, an immediate priority. Bell has yet to play in a full season, and has experienced an injury every year since being drafted in 2013.
Wright is owed $67 million by the Mets over the next four seasons. The 34-year-old has a chronic back condition known as spinal stenosis and underwent neck surgery last year to fix a herniated disk. Wright's injury will hamper the club's depth to begin the season, and could present a recurring problem once again for the Mets. Wright played 37 games last season after appearing in 38 the year before.
David Wright was all smiles in the Mets dugout during a spring training game Monday afternoon, but he (and Mets fans) aren't smiling today after the latest injury news surrounding the 34-year-old third baseman. He will be re-evaluated after the two weeks, and could be a designated hitter then.
Last season, Wright hit.226 with seven home runs and 14 RBIs. Reyes played 50 games at third last season after re-joining the Mets as a free agent last June.
