Mets' Wright undergoes back surgery

NEW YORK (AP) Mets captain David Wright underwent back surgery, his second operation in a month as he tries to return to the major leagues after an absence of 1+ years.

The team said Thursday that Wright had a procedure in Los Angeles called a laminotomy, is which a bony layer over the spinal canal is removed to treat nerve compression.

Wright has not played for the Mets since May 27, 2016. Dr. Robert Watkins operated that June 16 to repair a herniated disk in Wright's neck.
