Mets manager Terry Collins said earlier this month that he wasn’t counting on David Wright to make it back from his right hamstring strain this season, but his star third baseman is beginning to make some tangible progress.

Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork spotted Wright testing his hamstring by running in the outfield prior this afternoon at Citi Field. The plan calls for him to travel to the team’s complex in Port St. Lucie on Tuesday or Wednesday to ramp up baseball activities. If all goes well, he should be able to return during the final month of the season.

Wright was having one of his better seasons prior to the injury, batting .309/.391/.512 with 16 home runs, 54 RBI, and 17 stolen bases over 105 games while playing excellent defense. Despite missing the past three weeks, the 30-year-old ranks seventh among position players with a 5.7 fWAR.

    I can’t wait to see what Terry Collins does with Wilmer Flores. He’s gonna play when Wright returns: either first or second.
