Mets third baseman David Wright was put on the disabled list Saturday with a right hamstring strain.

Now there’s somewhat of a timetable for his return.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, Wright has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 hamstring strain — which is likely to take 3-5 weeks to recover from. He’ll be aiming to make it back by the end of August but early-September might be more realistic. Justin Turner started at third base on Saturday and Josh Satin is playing third base on Sunday. Daniel Murphy will also see some action at the hot corner.

Wright, 30, is batting .309/.391/.512 with 16 homers and 54 RBI in 105 games this season.

    Whatever happened to Ruben tejada? He tore it up in buffalo and I haven’t heard about him since we switch to the blue jays

      I have a feeling that his attitude and that of Valdespin are keeping them in exile.

        If either of those two were able to produce on the big league level, they’d be there.

        More than attitude with Valdespin. Just announced his 50 game suspension due to being involved with that PED clinc.

        Yeah, I think management knew.

        And I think ‘Spin has played his last game as a Met.

      David Wright is a little bitch. Play like a man you wimp!

        You really should look into hamstring injuries dude they are something you can play through so easy.

      • martiangal - Aug 5, 2013 at 1:49 PM

        Hamstrings are one of the worst injuries to have – they require a really thorough recovery, even when a player feels better, otherwise they become chronically reinjured. Case in point: Jose Reyes

    Going to be plenty of available seats at Citi Field. Other than Matt Harvet once every 5 days, not many reasons left to see the Mets.

    • sdelmonte - Aug 4, 2013 at 10:50 AM

      Zack Wheeler.

      And really the rest of the rotation has been good. But Parnell is also hurting, so it might be worthwhile to leave after the 7th.

      • dondada10 - Aug 4, 2013 at 11:26 AM

        If they called up Wilmer Flores I would be on the Grand Central tonight driving to Citi.

    God hates my beloved Mets.

    Well crapola — there go the Mets playoff chances.

    • martiangal - Aug 5, 2013 at 1:50 PM

      Which were non-existent to start with, let’s face it. Being a Met fan is like constantly having a paper cut finger soaking in lemon juice.

    Sell Fred, sell.
