Mets All-Star David Wright is out of the hospital a day after getting hit in the helmet by a pitch from San Francisco's Matt Cain.
 
Team spokesman Jay Horwitz said Sunday that Wright had a headache and was experiencing "post-concussion symptoms" after he was released from the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Wright was hit squarely in the helmet by a 94 mph fastball from Cain in the fourth inning Saturday. His helmet went flying into the air as Wright crumpled to the ground in the batter's box, where he lay for several minutes before getting helped off the field.

Horwitz said Wright saw a neurologist Saturday night and again Sunday. He's expected back at the ballpark this week, but there is no timetable for his return to the lineup.
