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.

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 on ...

The international break means all is quiet on the club level, and as expected, the rumour mill is once again working overtime.

The case for keeping Ruben Tejada

Oct 9 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: mets blog

Brian P. Mangan, MetsBlog Contributor: I prefer Wilmer Flores be this team’s starting shortstop, which you can read more about, here and here, in posts from earlier this year. That said, I still see value in Ruben Tejada as part of Sandy Alderson’s bench or, at the very least, starting for another team. Tejada is not yet a free agent, and any team that hopes to compete cannot do so without a young, cost-controlled core of players contributing value at under-market prices. For instance, look ...

It’s not a very exciting list of free agents this winter

Oct 1 2014 11:01am CDT | Source: mets blog

Matthew Cerrone: It’s early, and there is still so much we don’t know about the free-agent market and landscape for trades, so it makes it difficult to say what the Mets should or shouldn’t do this winter… However, in the event you’re hoping they fill their off-season holes with meaningful free-agent signings, hope again. It’s not the most exciting list. For instance, in terms of shortstops, you’re looking at Asdrubal Cabrera, Stephen Drew, J.J. Hardy, Jed Lowrie and Hanley ...

I expect a playoff team in 2015

Sep 29 2014 2:15pm CDT | Source: mets blog

Matthew Cerrone: I expect the Mets to get to the playoffs in 2015. I don’t know that it will happen. I don’t know if they’ll be good enough. However, given what I’ve seen, given what this franchise has done the last few years, it’s officially time to take a shot at the end zone. This organization has spent the last year or so talking about turning corners and being “close.” This is nice. But, as Terry Collins said Sunday, “Talking is great, doing i ...
