Mets third baseman David Wright hasn't played since Aug. 2 because of a right hamstring strain, but now he may be close to a return. In fact, Mets manager Terry Collins says he thinks Wright will be in the lineup for Friday night's road game against the Phillies (source: Newark Star-Ledger).

Collins went on to say that he'd hoped Wright would be amply healed in time to play in the current series against the Giants, but that didn't happen. Now, though, Wright appears to be ready.

This season, Wright, age 30, is batting .309/.391/.512 with 16 homers and 17 stolen bases in 105 games played. Obviously, the Mets aren't contending, but getting the face of franchise back for the final games of the season could provide a bit of an uplift and set the tone for 2014. "With how things have gone this year, there's not too many positives you can take," Wright said of his pending return. "You want to win some of the smaller battles."
