Mets injury update: David Wright continues rehabbing hamstring

The third baseman is progressing in his rehab of a hamstring injury.

NJ Advance Media for TODAY Sports

David Wright left a game on April 15 with an injured hamstring after stealing second base. He has been rehabbing the injury since, and has recently started to include baseball activities in his workouts. Marc Carig of Newsday wrote that Wright has begun light running and fielding grounders. Although he will soon be eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list, Terry Collins said that he is "not close" to returning.

Wright was off to a good start as he looked to rebound from a disappointing—and, it turns out, injury-hampered—2014 season. Through eight games, he was hitting .333/.371/.424 with one home run. When Wright hurt his hamstring, Eric Campbell was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to take his place. While filling in at the hot corner, the 28-year-old has hit .237/.354/.395.

To further hold the fort while Wright is out, Wilfredo Tovar could be called up from Triple-A when Rafael Montero is sent down after his spot start tonight. He would then be returned to Triple-A when Wright is ready to rejoin the Mets.
