NEW YORK — The New York Mets said that third baseman David Wright will return for the team’s final homestand on Sept. 29.
The Mets said that they plan to activate Wright when they return to Citi Field on Sept. 25 against Atlanta.
The 35-year-old is scheduled to play on the second to last day of the regular season against Miami.
It would be his first major league game since May 2016. Wright has worked to return from a litany of neck, back and shoulder injuries that have required surgery.
