The New York Mets placed third baseman David Wright on the 15-day disabled list earlier Saturday with a hamstring strain, but manager Terry Collins expects the All-Star to miss significantly more time.

Collins classified Wright's right hamstring strain as "Grade 3" and said Saturday he will be out anywhere from three to five weeks.
