PITTSBURGH -- David Wright missed his third consecutive game Sunday with a bruised rotator cuff in his left shoulder.

Wright is set to have the shoulder re-evaluated on Monday, and Mets manager Terry Collins said he is unsure how much more time Wright will miss, but sounded optimistic the bruise won't force Wright to the disabled list.

"With what they said yesterday, I don't think [a trip to the DL] is going to happen," Collins said Sunday morning. "But he could walk in tomorrow, still have discomfort and need to rest it longer, that could lead it in a different direction. I'm not planning on that, for sure."

While his shoulder heals, Wright's 10-game hitting streak is on hold, and he's temporarily unable to bolster his stats as he sits second in National League All-Star voting at third base, just 19,007 votes behind Aramis Ramirez of Milwaukee. Wright is hitting .385 with two homers, eight RBIs and a 1.083 OPS during the hitting streak.
