New York Mets third baseman David Wright plans to return in 2013 in spite of a Grade 2 right hamstring strain he sustained on August 3.

New York Mets third baseman David Wright plans to return in 2013 despite a hamstring strain he suffered almost a month ago. 

This is what Wright declares even if a return to action next season would be the better option, per Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. Wright's right hamstring strain was declared as Grade 2. Grade 3 is the highest level. 

He sustained the injury on August 2 as he was reaching first base on an infield single. 

Wright remains undaunted. He wants to return to help his team finish strong. 

"This is what I do. I want to play. It's against a lot of -- pretty much everything -- that I believe in just to shut the season down and get ready for next year. You've got 25 guys in that room battling right now, and obviously we're in an uphill battle with some of the injuries and some of the trades and things that have happened. So I want to get back and join my teammates and try to help them finish strong.

"And then the second part of that is, personally, I don't want the next time I take the field to be spring training, with the uncertainty of not being able to finish the season strong and healthy."

However, Wright was cautioned by fellow third baseman Michael Young of the Philadelphia Phillies -- the Mets' division rivals-- to not be too anxious about a return this year. Young recalled an at-bat when he didn't even swing and his hamstring gave out. 

"It was a cautionary tale that he wanted to come find me and tell me, and I appreciated that." 

Rubin points out Wright is limiting himself to jogging as part of his training regimen. The Mets' star also said his doctors labeled the strain as a "six-week injury" but announces he's "ahead of schedule." 

Mets manager Terry Collins was unsure about Wright's return three weeks ago, saying,"There's nothing etched in stone." 

For the 2013 MLB season, Wright has hit .309 to go along with 16 home runs and 54 RBIs in 105 games.

FA predictions point to Mets on Cuddyer, Cabrera

Nov 3 2014 9:45am CST | Source: mets blog

Daily News reporter Andy Martino’s educated guess is that Michael Cuddyer will eventually sign a two-year deal with the Mets (Daily News, Nov. 2). “He’s 35 and missed most of last season with injuries, but can still rake,” writes Martino. “Known as a great clubhouse guy, and longtime friend to David Wright. The Mets like him on a two-year deal, and he seems inclined to accept that length. MLB Trade Rumors also predicts the Mets will be in on Cuddyer, as well as Melky Cabrera, Colby Rasmus, Nick ...

New York Mets Offseason Tracker: Hottest Free Agency News, Trade Rumors

Oct 31 2014 10:51am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Mets have some talent on their roster, and with a couple of moves this winter, the team could turn into contenders next season. Last year, the Mets made a couple of big splashes by signing Curtis Granderson and Bartolo Colon. Those moves showed that the front office was committed to winning, and this winter the club could benefit from being aggressive. The Mets could use some help on offense. Outside of Daniel Murphy, David Wright and Juan Lagares, the team doesn ...

Wilmer Flores is Sandy Alderson’s best option at SS

Oct 30 2014 1:35pm CDT | Source: mets blog

Brian Mangan: FanGraphs projects that Wilmer Flores will hit 14 HR and 68 RBI in only 475 at bats next season, making him the fourth best player on his team next season. It might be a stretch to say he’ll be better than Lucas Duda, but I do think he will provide plenty of positive value to the team.

Chelsea Transfer News: Latest on January Deals Targeted by Jose Mourinho

Oct 26 2014 11:17am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

An outstanding start to the 2014-15 season has been crafted largely by a highly successful summer of spending at Stamford Bridge, and Chelsea will look to maintain that progress with more business this winter. Latest speculation dictates that the Blues will look to strengthen across the board rather than focus on one specific area, with targets in Spain, Italy and France being lined up ahead of the January win ...

NL East Links: Kaneko, Cuddyer, Ricciardi, Braves

Oct 23 2014 11:49am CDT | Source: MLB Trade Rumors

Japanese right-hander Chihiro Kaneko is visiting the United States to get a first-hand look at the atmosphere of Major League Baseball by visiting the World Series, according to Yahoo Sports Japan (Japanese link). The 31-year-old Kaneko is the ace of Nippon Professional Baseball’s Orix Buffaloes and is eligible to be posted this offseason, if his team agrees to post him (and, if he expresses a desire to jump to MLB).

The veteran, versatile, interchangeable mercenary

Oct 23 2014 10:45am CDT | Source: mets blog

Matthew Cerrone: In today’s Daily News, Andy Martino says, while Sandy Alderson will continue to try and trade for another team’s elite outfielder, the Mets are more likely to surround their core of pitchers with a lineup filled of “veteran, versatile or otherwise interchangeable pieces,” similar to the Rays (Daily News, Oct. 23). This should sound familiar, since I have essentially written the same thing each of the last two winters. “I think San ...

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Third Base Rankings

Oct 22 2014 5:07am CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

If you own one of the top 15 guys on this list as your dynasty league third baseman, then you have to be feeling pretty good about the position, or at least that it isn’t a huge hole on your team. Third base is very deep at the top and the prospects at the position are among the most dynamic power threats in the game. We saw a lot of breakouts in 2014 including Anthony Rendon, Josh Harrison, Todd Frazier, and Lonnie Chisenhall. We also so some players take a step back due to age ...

Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly ready to battle it out for Everton's Seamus Coleman, but the Ireland international won't be moving to Stamford Bridge during the summer transfer window. According to the Daily Express' David Wright, both clubs are preparing £20 million offers for the full-back, who might be tempted to move to a bigger club if the Toffees' run of disappointing results continues: The right-back has emerged as one of the Premier Lea ...
