The Mets are just playing out the string at this point, but it appears that David Wright will get some peace of mind going into the offseason.
According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, Mets manager Terry Collins said this afternoon that Wright could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday against the Giants. The 30-year-old has been sidelined since August 2 with a Grade 2 strain of his right hamstring, but he has been able to ramp up baseball activities in recent days.
Wright was quietly having one of his best seasons prior to the injury, batting .309/.391/.512 with 16 home runs, 54 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 105 games. The Mets have gone 16-23 with him on the shelf.
