2017 FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: DAVID WRIGHT THROWS SUNDAY FOR FIRST TIME SINCE SURGERY

New York Mets third baseman David Wright took part in a throwing session Sunday for the first time since before his surgery last season related to his spinal stenosis.  The Mets are still trying to determine if Wright is capable of manning third base and the throws that go with it and if not, he could enter into a platoon at first base with Lucas Duda who himself is no beacon of health with continued back woes.  If the latter develops, Wright would be on the wrong side of the platoon and have zero fantasy baseball value.  Even if he sticks at third, Wright is only for NL-only leagues and barely that as he won't play more than 3-4 times a week.  It is as sharp a decline as you can get from a guy who was a first round star earlier in his career.
