Mets Release David Wright, Move Him into Special Adviser Role to COO and GM

The New York Mets announced Monday former third baseman David Wright has agreed to join the team’s front office as a special adviser to COO Jeff Wilpon and general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.

Wright was also released from the active roster with the move despite having two more years under contract with the team.

Can David Wright offer any worse advice than everyone else has given the Mets in the last few decades?

David Wright walks off to long ovation in farewell game with Mets

FLUSHING, Queens (WABC)—David Wright has left to a long standing ovation before a packed crowd at Citi Field in his farewell game for the New York Mets.

...

The team captain went 0 for 1 with a walk Saturday night against the Miami Marlins and was removed after two plate appearances as planned. On defense, he handled a one-hopper to third base with no problem.

Wright, who fouled out to first base his final time up, took his position before the top of the fifth inning. Mets manager Mickey Callaway then came out of the dugout to make a lineup change, and Wright began his slow walk off the field.

After the last few years of struggle for Wright, it’s nice to see the salute he received from those in attendance.

David Wright to suit up for Mets one last time

Fighting back tears at an emotional news conference Thursday, Wright announced he will return from a 2 1/2-year absence to start at third base on Sept. 29. He does not expect to play again after this month.

I bet he’ll get a pretty good ovation, and he deserves it.

Wright rejoins Mets, hopes to get back on field in September

Given how the year has gone for the Mets so far, I can’t rule out Wright coming back….

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — David Wright rejoined the New York Mets on Friday, though he remains on the disabled list, and said he met with team officials to discuss what he needs to prove physically in order to get back in a major league game for the first time since 2016.

The seven-time All-Star third baseman took grounders before the Mets faced the San Francisco Giants and said he’s “cautiously optimistic” he’ll get into a game in September. The Mets have not announced a timetable for his return.

Wright is trying to come back from back, neck and shoulder injuries that have required three surgeries and kept the 35-year-old off the field since May 27, 2016. He said team management discussed what he needs to show to rejoin the lineup.
