Wright has lost range ?

Andrew Keh of the NY Times takes a look at David Wright's disappointing season, one of the more interesting tidbits is that an anonymous scout believes he has lost range in the field.  We all know Wright has his throwing issues and they have gotten worse since his return but I haven't noticed him missing balls I thought he should get to...

One major league scout, who has watched Wright frequently this season and was granted anonymity so he could speak candidly about another team’s player, said that Wright looked somewhat tentative, both in the field — he has 18 errors in 93 games — and at the plate since returning from the disabled list, and that he thought Wright had lost a full grade defensively, with greatly diminished range. source NY Times
