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.
