According to Anthony DiComo of, New York Mets’ star third baseman David Wright could make a return on Tuesday.Wright, who has been on the DL since August 3, would come back against the San Francisco Giants, looking to make progression going into next season.

Wright said all along that he would return before the end of the 2013 season, and the hard work has paid off. He ran the bases at a great pace on Saturday and will continue to do so until the Mets training staff gives him the OK. A hamstring injury is always scary for a mobile player that is covering ground and running the bases like Wright will. It will be key to watch his mobility the last couple of weeks of the 2013 season. 

Wright will return to the Mets lineup a .309 hitter with 16 Home Runs 54 RBI. He has also accumulated 23 Doubles on the season. He is the leader of this Mets team and will have to keep the team positive as the season winds down. It is a good sign that Wright is making a comeback, even with the season practically over for the Mets. It shows that he wants to be on the field with his teammates, even when the season is practically over.
