The Mets have activated David Wright from the 60-day disabled list.
Wright, who will start at third base on Saturday, Sept. 29 at Citi Field in what will be his first major league action in over two years, could appear in games before then.
Mets manager Mickey Callaway said last Friday that he could look to give Wright pinch-hitting appearances at Citi Field between Sept. 25 and Sept. 28.
Callaway added he would give Wright ample notice before any potential pinch-hitting assignment. It takes Wright rougly two hours to get his body ready for a game, meaning he would likely know before any game whether Callaway planned to use him as a pinch-hitter.
Whether he plays between now and then, On Sept. 29, Wright -- who made it clear last Thursday that his body is still betraying him -- will start at third base, with Jose Reyes next to him at shortstop.
In 13 seasons with the Mets, Wright -- a seven-time All-Star -- has hit .296/.376/.491 with 242 homers, 390 doubles, 970 RBI, and 949 runs scored.
Among the all-time Mets records Wright holds are hits (1,777), doubles, total bases (2,665), RBI, and runs scored. He is second all-time in homers, behind Darryl Strawberry (252).
Wright is under contract through the 2020 season -- set to earn $15 million in 2019 and $12 million in 2020, during what is the final year of the eight-year, $138 million deal he signed prior to the 2013 season.
