The ups and downs of David Wright

David Wright has been the lone constant with the Mets the past nine seasons. He rose as a rookie on a club settled in mediocrity, helped make the Mets a contender again and then endured years of collapses as injuries and poor contracts took their toll on the team. Now the team is making noise again and Wright is at the center of that, too. Look back on the highlights—and low-lights—of his near-decade in Flushing.

'Back' to the disabled list

Wright was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his lower back on May 16, forcing him to go on the disabled list. The lengthy stay finally ended on July 22, but it was somewhat of a lost season for Wright, who finished with the lowest batting average and fewest RBIs and runs of his career.

Stats: .254 average, 14 home runs, 61 RBIs, 60 runs
