LOS ANGELES - Mets third baseman David Wright was pulled after just three innings against the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon with what the club called muscle spasms on the right side of his neck.

Wright went 1-for-2 and scored a run before he was pulled in the middle of the third for Eric Campbell.

Even as he's slumped through the most trying season of his career, Wright has insisted that his bothersome left shoulder has not been an issue. Nevertheless, Wright entered Sunday's game hitting just .265 with eight homers and 56 RBIs.

During the club's West Coast swing, Wright finished 3-for-19. His early departure came one day after an 0-for-5 performance.
