Wright (shoulder) is taking swings in the batting cage and continues to throw, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Wright began baseball activities at the start of June and is slowing increasing his participation with the bat and on the field, but still has a long way to go in his rehab. The veteran third baseman should continue to ramp things up until he reaches game speed, which will provide a much better idea about his potential 2018 return.
Wright (shoulder) hit off a tee Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Wright is slowly beginning to ramp up his baseball activities, as he was able to take swings for the first times off a tee Sunday: He took 20 swings, per Healey. Wright has also participated in taking grounders and making low-intensity throws across the infield over the past few days. Although there's still no exact timetable for a return, it's positive news that Wright feels healthy enough to add more drills to his repertoire.
Wright (shoulder) was able to field grounders Sunday, but didn't do any throwing, Howie Kussoy of the New York Post reports. Wright resumed baseball activities by playing light catch Thursday and will gradually build up the intensity of his rehab program in the weeks to follow. The Mets are still viewing Wright as out indefinitely, but if the veteran third baseman endures no setbacks with his back or shoulder while ramping up again, a target date for his return from the 60-day disabled list should come into focus once he's ready to begin a rehab assignment. With Wright more than two years removed from his last MLB action, the Mets likely won't be counting on the 35-year-old to offer any noteworthy on-field contribution in 2018.
Wright (shoulder) is expected to be able to participate in baseball activities within the next one to three weeks, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Wright was spotted throwing Thursday from around 30 feet in what was described as a low-intensity session. He's expected to begin ramping up his activity within the next few weeks, and if he can manage to avoid any major setbacks, he'll likely go through a full spring-training style process before an activation off the disabled list can even be considered.
Wright (shoulder) hopes to be cleared for baseball activities in late May, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Wright is seeing a doctor for a follow-up examination at the end of May and could be cleared for baseball activities at that time. Even if he is indeed cleared, he would likely need to go through a full spring training style process in order to get ready to play. He hasn't appeared in the big leagues since 2016 and has played in only 75 games since 2014, so the odds of him being effective if he ever makes it back to the field are quite low.
