David Wright set to begin minor league rehab assignment

David Wright

Remember David Wright? He still wants to return to the big leagues, and he’s actually making some progress in that department.

The New York Mets announced Saturday that Wright is set to begin a stint with the team’s High-A affiliate in St. Lucie, where he will play five innings at third base on Sunday.

Wright’s last big-league appearance came on May 27, 2016. Since then, he’s battled various injuries, including neck and rotator cuff surgeries.

Wright has been steadfast in his desire to play again. It looked like a longshot, but he’s poised to play in a competitive game again, which itself is a victory for him in his comeback.
