Mets' Wright to return for final game September 29

Mets' Wright to return for final game September 29

Those words seemed unlikely, as Wright hadn't played in a big league game since 2016.

During a press conference on Thursday, Wright announced that it will likely be the last series of his career.

The New York Mets said that third baseman David Wright will return for the team's final homestand on September 29.

Although not officially retiring, Wright is not expected to play again after this season.

"I think I'm hopefully out of tears for this one, but I spoke to the guys a couple of minutes ago", Wright said as his teammates and media looked on.

Two of the sets of Korean War remains that were returned from North Korea belonged to US servicemen during the Korean War. The forensic teams have reportedly analyzed 23 of the 55 sets of remains, though some are more complete than others.

While Wright, now 35 years old, won't be coming back to the same Mets team that was defending an NL pennant the last time - far from it - he'll be returning to the roster as one of the most celebrated players in Mets history. "I can not express my gratitude and appreciation for everything this organization has done and continues to do for me".

According to WFAN's Mike Francesa, the Mets will activate the veteran third baseman for their last homestand of the season. Mets COO Jeff Wilpon says that there will indeed be a discussion about the retirement of Wright's No. 5 (Twitter link via the New York Post's Mike Puma), though there's no specific timetable just yet as to when that honor would be bestowed upon venerable team captain.

And, while he will be back on the field, Wright said he didn't see the possibility of his baseball career extending beyond 2018 as a possibility due to his health issues.

Wright is a career.296 hitter in the majors, with 242 home runs and 970 RBIs. When the Mets reinstate him from the 60-day disabled list, they could diminish the amount of insurance money they could collect on his contract.
