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.

How much is Jenrry Mejia’s sports hernia affecting his pitching?

Sep 18 2014 1:35pm CDT | Source: mets blog

In early August, Mets closer Jenrry Mejia said he had been pitching through pain – due to a sports hernia – for three weeks (ESPN, Aug. 10). There is less than two weeks left to the 2014 season and – considering how the Mets handled David Wright‘s nagging shoulder injury – should they also consider shutting their young closer down for the remainder of the season? Ben Berkon, MetsBlog Contributor: “Dear Mr Mejia, I pitched ...

Six back with 17 to play

Sep 10 2014 2:01pm CDT | Source: mets blog

Matthew Cerrone: There are 17 games left to play in 2014. Naturally, at this point in the season, I get shivers thinking about 2007, when the Mets started coughing up their now-legendary seven game lead to the Phillies. These days, they are six losses back of the second Wild Card spot in the National League. The way I see it, the Mets would need to go roughly 15-2 down the stretch – assuming every one keeps ...

Farewell Murphy, You’ve Been A Good Soldier and A Class Act

Sep 10 2014 9:59am CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

After listening to Sandy Alderson warn military veterans that spending and flexibility would be limited this offseason, during a visit to the Manhattan VA Hospital, and after hearing him say spending doesn’t equate to winning and not to expect any significant free agent signing, I’ve become convinced of one thing… Daniel Murphy is playing his final games as a Met. Even if the Mets were to do nothing and bring back the same team, they will have to dole out $22 million in r ...
