David Wright fields grounders in return to baseball activity

Tuesday July 28th, 2015

New York Mets third baseman David Wright returned to baseball activity fielding grounders at Citi Field on Tuesday afternoon, according to Joe Kraus of SNY.

“Felt good,” Wright said. “And the uniform still fits so that’s good.”

Wright, 32, has not played since April 14 when he went on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring before later being diagnosed with spinal stenosis. Wright has spent most of his time rehabbing in Southern California before rejoining the team in New York for baseball activities. 

Wright is in his 12th year with the New York Mets after signing an eight-year $138 million deal after the 2012 season. In eight games before he was sidelined in April, he batted .333 (11-for-33) with one home run, four RBIs and three runs scored.
