When asked if Wright might miss the rest of the season due to his injury, Mets manager Terry Collins answered, "No question."
Collins was quoted in the MLB.com article as saying, "There's nothing etched in stone. We're hoping certainly that it's four weeks. If it's five, it's five. If it's six, it's six. If he gets back, tremendous. That means the healing process and all the rehab stuff will work. But there is absolutely no timetable at all."
Wright, currently on a daily physical therapy regimen in New York, has been out since Aug. 2. He had been playing through a sore hamstring at the time and aggravated the injury during that game. The Mets placed him on the disabled list the next day.
The Mets originally expected Wright to miss around three-to-five weeks. With the possibility of Wright missing the remainder of the season existing, it seems that his recovery may not be going as well as the Mets had hoped. New York should have a better idea on when he may return after he begins running, fielding and hitting drills. That will occur when he moves to Port St. Lucie, Fla. to continue his rehab.
Wright was in the middle of his best hitting season since 2008 before suffering the injury. He has hit .309 this season with a .904 OPS and was on the way to a third career 20-20 season with 16 home runs and 17 stolen bases over 105 games.
