The New York Mets activated third baseman David Wright from the disabled list after he recovered from a back injury, and he is in the lineup Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies. Wright had been out since April 14 due to spinal stenosis, and he will reportedly be a part-time player for the rest of the season. “I never tried to get caught up in the big picture of things and say, ‘This is the date, this is what I want to do.’ It was more just daily goals,” Wright told the New York Post. “If I accomplished the goals for today, I’d just move on to tomorrow. When you have something [this] significant, as far as time goes, the time I’ve been gone, it will drive you crazy if you say, ‘OK, I want to be back by this day, I want to do this.’ Kind of look at the big-picture things.” Wright is expected to split time with Juan Uribe, who had been starting while Wright was on the disabled list.

New York Mets third baseman David Wright could return from his back injury for next week's series against the Philadelphia Phillies, according to ESPN New York. Wright, who has been out since April 14, has played four rehab games with Class-A St. Lucie and will need a few more before returning to the major leagues. "It felt good to dive, seeing some pitches, having some good at-bats, having some terrible at-bats," Wright said. "But that's the way it goes. I can't beat myself up too much because it's been four months since I've had an at-bat. I was thinking about it [diving]. I want to get to where it's just a reaction. I want to think about baseball instead of thinking [about pain]. In your mind, you're thinking you should be in mid-season, you should be reacting well. At this point, I don't know what's realistic. Let's see how my body responds and then make a plan for the week. The last thing I want to do is rush this and not be ready."

New York Mets third baseman David Wright will begin a rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie on Monday as he continues to recover from a back injury, according to the New York Daily News. Wright will be the designated hitter in his first game, and if he does not suffer any setbacks, he is expected to start at third base Tuesday. He has been sidelined since mid-April due to the issue, which was initially described as a hamstring injury before he was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. “I’m planning on coming back and being an everyday player," Wright told ESPN New York earlier this week. “It’s nice to be back in the grind again, rather than being secluded to the therapy room. It’s been a long process and I like the fact we’re finally talking about baseball and no rehab and doctors. You put in all this work to finally get to the point where you are now."

New York Mets third baseman David Wright could start a rehab assignment as early as Monday as he continues to recover from a back injury, according to ESPN New York. Wright, who began what will be a five-day stretch of rigorous baseball workouts Tuesday, will rest Sunday before embarking on a rehab assignment if he does not suffer any setbacks. The 32-year-old has not played since April 14 because of spinal stenosis, but he is nearing a return after receiving clearance to increase his activity level. “I’m planning on coming back and being an everyday player," Wright said. “It’s nice to be back in the grind again, rather than being secluded to the therapy room. It’s been a long process and I like the fact we’re finally talking about baseball and no rehab and doctors. You put in all this work to finally get to the point where you are now." Wright will need a handful of rehab starts before he returns, but he is on track to return sometime this month.

New York Mets third baseman David Wright will work out five consecutive days as he continues to recover from a back injury, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. Wright, who has been on the disabled list for all but eight games this season as a result of spinal stenosis, will begin his workouts Tuesday. It was reported by ESPN New York that Wright could begin a rehab assignment sometime this week, but Wright has not commented, saying he is simply working to get back on the field as soon as possible. "It's in incremental steps every day where not only are you doing the baseball things a number of days in a row, but you're also upping the reps each day, so there is a little more on my plate every day," Wright told New York Newsday. "It's just a matter of making sure my body can respond to those baseball things on a daily basis."
