Not all of today's Mets injury news has been discouraging, as manager Terry Collins told Maria Guardado of NJ.com that he expects David Wright to resume physical activities on Sunday. Wright has been on the 15-day disabled since April 15th due to a strained hamstring.
"He's coming along great," Collins said regarding his team's Captain. "He's hopefully going to get in the weight room and do some stuff."
The star third basemen received a cortisone shot on Wednesday, but has been playing an active supporting role in the team's dugout during their eight-game winning streak. His leadership in the clubhouse will surely continue to be valued, as the team will now have to play without starting catcher Travis d'Arnaud and left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins.
Filling in for Wright has been Eric Campbell, who is 4-for-16 at the plate with three RBI since being called up, and his fielding ability at third base has been a pleasant surprise. While Wright thinks he could return in two weeks, GM Sandy Alderson speculated he'll likely miss closer to three weeks with the injury.
