David Wright gave the Mets quite a scare Thursday when he was hit in the helmet by a pitch, but Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News passes along word that he’s back in the starting lineup this afternoon against the Brewers.
The good news is that Wright passed all of his concussion tests, but he injured his right thumb while attempting to get out of the way of the pitch. He told Ackert that he still feels it in his thumb, but it’s not serious enough to keep him out of the lineup for the second straight day.
Wright just returned from the disabled list this week after missing seven weeks with a hamstring injury. The 30-year-old is batting .312/.397/.522 with 18 home runs, 57 RBI, and 17 stolen bases over 111 games this season.
