David Wright on verge of return to the Mets

Since losing their captain and franchise player 3B David Wright (Chesapeake) to the DL in early April, the New York Mets have still churned on, and, thanks to their incredible pitching staff, have now overtaken the Washington Nationals, opening up a 4.5 game lead on the division title favorites with roughly 7 weeks to go in the season.

Now, the Mets are on the verge of becoming whole again.

Wright, who played in 8 games for the Mets this season before going on the DL with what turned out to be spinal stenosis, has been working his way back, rehabbing with the Mets’ Single-A affiliate at St. Lucie. Wright tells MLB.com that he hopes to get 30 at-bats in the minors before coming off the DL, in time to rejoin the Mets, which would put him in line to rejoin the big club next weekend in Colorado, just in time for a Mets stretch run that could lead to the team’s first division title since 2006.
