Mets' David Wright diagnosed with spinal stenosis

David Wright has endured another setback after being diagnosed with spinal stenosis, Anthony DiComo of .com reported Saturday. The third baseman was originally put on the disabled list in mid-April after suffering a hamstring injury. He began having stiffness in his lower back in early May which caused a delay in his return to the Mets. Now, he'll be shut down completely for at least another week and there's no real timetable for his return.
