David Wright went 2-for-5 with two singles and a run scored in Friday's 10-inning loss to the Red Sox.
Wright missed four months with spinal stenosis, but has come back seemingly as though nothing had happened. In the four games he's played since his return from the disabled list, he's 6-for-20 with a home run, three RBI and six runs scored. There's fantasy value here, particularly with the Mets playing well on offense. Aug 28 - 11:55 PM

Date:

David Wright is back in the Mets' starting lineup, batting cleanup and playing third base, Thursday night against the Phillies.

Wright was given the night off Wednesday, but he is expected to start the Mets' next three games. The veteran third baseman homered Monday in his first game since April 14 and looks capable of providing significant fantasy value in the middle of an energized Mets lineup.

David Wright is not in the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Wright played in the first two games of the series against the Phillies but is sitting out the third, which could be a pretty normal routine as he returns from spinal stenosis. Juan Uribe is at third base.
Aug 26 - 3:48 PM

David Wright is in the Mets' lineup again Tuesday against the Phillies, batting cleanup.

Wright went 2-for-5 with a homer and a walk Monday in his first game since April 14. He'll likely need regular rest as he manages his spinal stenosis condition, but it's a good sign that he feels well enough to play consecutive days.
Aug 25 - 3:51 PM

David Wright, playing in his first game since April 14, homered as the Mets trampled the Phillies on Monday.

Wright made a grand entrance, slamming an Adam Morgan pitch into the second deck at Citizens Bank Park in his first at-bat of the game, putting the Mets on the board at 4-1 in the second inning. He would finish 2-for-5 with a walk. Wright carries a .342/.390/.500 batting line with two home runs and five RBI in 41 plate appearances this season. The Mets plan to ease the third baseman back by giving him regular rest.

Mets activated 3B David Wright from the 60-day disabled list.

Wright is starting at third base and batting cleanup in his first major league game since April 14. The veteran third baseman went 9-for-28 (.321) with five walks on his eight-game minor league rehab assignment and will be worth starting in standard fantasy leagues on days he plays. Mets manager Terry Collins has said that Wright will get regular days off out of the gate.

David Wright (back) played six innings at third base Saturday afternoon at High-A St. Lucie.

That should be the final rehab game for Wright, who is expected to rejoin the Mets on Monday. The veteran third baseman went 9-for-28 (.321) with five walks and six strikeouts during his rehab assignment. He's not going to play every day out of the gate, but Wright could regain some value in deeper mixed fantasy leagues if his health cooperates down the stretch.
Aug 22 - 8:10 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins has conceded that David Wright (back) won't play every day upon his activation from the disabled list.

It's no surprise given that Wright hasn't played since mid-April due to spinal stenosis. "I talked to Dave today.... I don’t know how many days a week, but he certainly won’t be that everyday guy until we know his back is 100%; that may not be until next spring," Collins said. The Mets will mix in Juan Uribe at third base on days Wright sits. Wright is expected back on Monday.
Aug 21 - 9:52 AM

David Wright (shoulder) will not be activated from the disabled list this week.

Wright had been hoping to return as soon as this weekend in Colorado, but the Mets have ruled that out. Instead, he's in line to rejoin the big club early next week in Philadelphia. Wright hasn't played since mid-April due to spinal stenosis.
Aug 17 - 5:42 PM

David Wright (back) is hoping to be activated from the disabled list next weekend when the Mets are in Colorado.

Wright has already participated in a couple rehab games and will try to play in three games in three days to test out his ailing back. His potential return next weekend is tentative, as the Mets will have to see how his back responds to the activity after such a long absence. Wright hasn't played since mid-April due to spinal stenosis.
Aug 14 - 10:56 AM

Continuing his rehab, David Wright (back) went 1-for-3 with a single and a walk for High-A St. Lucie on Monday.

Wright's on a rehab assignment with St. Lucie as he works his way back from spinal stenosis. He served as the DH in Monday's game and expects to play five innings at third base on Tuesday. The Mets are shooting for around 30 rehab at-bats before they activate Wright for big league action. He hasn't played since mid-April.
Aug 10 - 10:57 PM

David Wright (back) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie on Monday.

Wright will serve as the designated hitter on Monday and will then play third base Tuesday. The Mets are expected to give him around 30 rehab at-bats, which would point to a return in a little over a week from Monday if all goes well. Wright hasn't played since mid-April due to spinal stenosis.
Aug 9 - 12:49 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that he expects David Wright (back) to begin a rehab assignment on Monday.

It's unclear at this point how many rehab contests he'll need before being activated. Wright has been put through strenuous workouts in recent days and apparently hasn't had any setbacks with his spinal stenosis. He's likely still a couple weeks away from being activated.
Aug 7 - 4:21 PM

David Wright (back) is hoping to begin a rehab assignment early next week.

Wright took a full round of batting practice on Tuesday and also did other activities, as he'll be put through strenuous workouts for five straight days. If he gets through that with no setbacks, he'll be cleared to play in games. "At this point, I just want to get in the lineup," Wright said. "I want to be part of the fun." Wright has been limited to just eight games this season due to spinal stenosis.

David Wright (back) is close to beginning a minor league rehab assignment.

Wright will move his rehab to the team's minor league facility in St. Lucie when the Mets begin their six-game road trip next week. The seven-time All-Star has been sidelined by spinal stenosis since April 14. Daniel Murphy has been plugging away at third base in Wright's absence.
