NEW YORK -- David Wright is out of the starting lineup Sunday, a day after getting struck with an 88 mph fastball from Dan Straily in the captain's already troubled back of the left shoulder.

Wright did not address reporters pregame, but a team spokesman said the third baseman remained "pretty sore."

It remains to be seen whether Wright will be available for Monday's matinee series finale against the Cubs.

Wright received a cortisone injection heading into the All-Star break because of issues with the shoulder. On Saturday, Wright lamented that the ball struck him directly in the spot that already was injured.
