David Wright News

  • Mets' Wright resumes baseball activities

    Sandy Alderson offered several injury updates after visiting veterans at the VA Hospital's Manhattan campus on Monday afternoon.

  • Wright's MRI shows no damage to back

    Wright is currently on the disabled list with a right hamstring injury, but the Mets announced Friday that he's developed lower back pain in the past few days. Wright has already undergone an MRI that showed no structural damage in his back, alleviating some concern.

  • Wright could play in Minors this weekend

    David Wright will run the bases later this week and could appear in a Minor League game as early as this weekend, Mets manager Terry Collins said.

  • Weekend return for Mets' Wright uncertain

    Third baseman David Wright continues inching back from the strained right hamstring that has claimed most of his April, taking live batting practice Wednesday for the first time since his injury. Though the Mets still hope he can return to active duty as soon as this weekend, his recovery could take a full week longer than that.

  • Collins hoping to have Wright back Saturday

    Rather than watch Sunday night's Subway Series finale from the dugout, where he had spent each of the previous two games, Mets third baseman David Wright caught a flight down to Florida. There, he plans to begin participating in baseball activities Monday for the first time since straining his right hamstring on April 14.

  • Mets' homestand one for the record books

    From a historian's vantage point, what the Mets are doing is similar to 1986. That year, the team also won 11 straight games in April, starting their summer 13-3. That is exactly where the 2015 Mets stand after 16 games, capping off a perfect 10-game homestand at Citi Field.

  • Mets' Wright: 'I'm bored out of my mind'

    Ever a creature of habit, Mets third baseman David Wright did everything possible to keep some semblance of his regular routine intact on Thursday, his first full day at Citi Field since straining his right hamstring earlier this week. And still, Wright said: "I'm bored out of my mind."

  • Mild right hamstring strain sends Wright to DL

    The Mets placed third baseman David Wright on the disabled list Wednesday with a strained right hamstring, recalling Eric Campbell from Triple-A Las Vegas. Wright, 32, felt a tug on his hamstring during a stolen-base attempt in the eighth inning of Tuesday's win over the Phillies. An MRI taken Wednesday morning revealed the strain, which the Mets classified as "mild."

  • Wright to get MRI after pulling right hamstring

    A bizarre game grew surreal for the Mets in the eighth inning Tuesday, when third baseman David Wright pulled his right hamstring on a stolen-base attempt. The short-term ramification was that the Mets played the ninth inning of their 6-5 win over the Phillies with a backup catcher manning third base.

  • Amid charged atmosphere, Mets rise to stage

    The atmosphere was foreign, aggressive, almost disconcerting, and David Wright sensed it. The Mets' last link to the 2006 club that came within a heartbeat or two of winning the pennant, Wright saw his team's new closer losing composure in the ninth inning of a two-run game, in front of the largest regular-season crowd that had ever assembled at Citi Field. So he calmly walked to the mound, gave Jeurys Familia a few throwaway words of encouragement, and returned to third base.
