David Wright Expected To Return Tomorrow

By Danny Abriano

UPDATE – 9/20, 1:31 PM:

Per the Mets, David Wright has been activated from the 15 day disabled list.  He’ll be active for tonight’s game in Philadelphia.


While talking with reporters this morning, Mets manager Terry Collins said that he expects third baseman David Wright to be activated from the disabled list and in the lineup tomorrow night in Philadelphia.

Wright, who hasn’t played since straining his hamstring on August 2nd, had been gradually ramping up his activity over the last few weeks.

Before suffering the injury, Wright was hitting .309 with a .391 OBP and .512 slugging percentage.  He had hit 16 home runs and driven in 54 runs.

If he is indeed activated tomorrow, Wright will have made it back for the last 10 games of the season.

There have been those who wondered why Wright wouldn’t just shut it down and return next season.  Those people clearly don’t understand what Wright is all about.  His desire, no matter what place the team is in, is to be on the field with his teammates.
