Wright Seen As A One-Year Rental And Injury Risk

An article by posted on January 16, 2012

Paul Hoynse of the Cleveland Plain Dealer fielded a question about the Tribe dealing for David Wright in his mailbag feature.

Hey, Hoynsie: Just was watching the MLB Network and they suggested the Tribe make a run at David Wright. Matching Lonnie Chisenhall and a couple young pitchers such as David Huff and Corey Kluber could match up well. – Chris Zanon, Canton

Hey, Chris: Like David Wright, don’t like his contract. He’ll make $15 million in 2012 and is eligible for free agency in 2013. Hate to lose Chisenhall for a one-year rental. One more thing, Wright played only 102 games last year because of a stress fracture in his back. Back injuries and the hot corner don’t co-exist. Just ask Joe Crede.

With the potential for trading Wright a likely possibility for the Mets in 2012, it will be interesting to see how other baseball markets view the Mets third baseman.
