Ex-Yankee Jaret Wright went down with shoulder pain yesterday. Surprise.
Update by Joseph P.: From the article:
“However, when Wright started warming up for the fifth inning last night, he was alarmed by a familiar feeling in the back of his right shoulder. Wright made it through one more inning before getting removed with shoulder stiffness…”
I understand there’s a bit of personal pride in toughing out injuries, but there has to be a point where you say, “I’ve had two surgeries on this shoulder and it has placed me on the DL as recently as 2005. Maybe I should tell someone NOW.”
Remember, back in April 2005, Wright “felt something” in his shoulder, and pitched until something popped in the fifth or sixth (maybe it was the fourth, I can’t remember). And then he missed nearly four months.
I couldn’t be happier to have him on another team.
