New York Mets All-Star third baseman David Wright will begin his rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie over the weekend.
St. Lucie’s season does end on Sunday, but the third baseman may not be ready at that time. He will more than likely play in some simulated games after that until the Mets are comfortable enough to activate him.
“You don’t want to go into the offseason with the uncertainty of an injury. And most importantly, I don’t want this to affect me next year or the years to come. So I have to rehab this properly, be diligent with it, stay on top of it. And to be honest with the rehab guys and medical guys down in Florida, as I continue to make progress. But all signs are good. I haven’t had a single setback yet.” David Wright told the Newark Star-Ledger
I have a feeling the Mets will decide to keep him out for the remainder of the season and let him continue to rehab his injury.
