Mets 3B David Wright To Start Rehab Assignment On Monday

According to the New York Daily News, New York Mets third baseman David Wright will begin his rehab assignment with Mets minor league affiliate High-A St. Lucie.

Mike Puma of the New York Post says he could be back with the Mets in ten days if there are no setbacks.

Here is video of Wright taking batting practice in St. Lucie.

Wright last appeared for the Mets on April 14th against the Phillies straining his hamstring sliding into second. He was then placed on the disabled list on April 15, but suffered a setback during rehab when he was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. The diagnosis was seen as potentially career-ending, but Wright has continued to push towards a return to Major League Baseball.

The Mets currently have a 1.5 game lead over the Washington Nationals in the NL East. Wright’s return could bring a much-needed offensive boost to a Mets’ lineup that has lagged behind a stellar pitching staff for much of the season.
