Mets' Wright could return Tuesday

The SportsXchange

New York Mets star third baseman David Wright could return to the lineup Tuesday after missing more than a month with a grade-3 hamstring strain, according to MLB.com.

Wright last played on Aug. 2 against the Kansas City Royals when he was injured.

The 30-year-old has been running around bases as part of his rehab. He was not able to play in minor league rehab games because the season ended at the beginning of the month.

Wright is batting .309 with 16 home runs and 54 RBI with a .391 on-base percentage this year.

The Mets, hosting the Miami Marlins this weekend, start a series against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday.
