NEW YORK (AP) - Four weeks after straining his right hamstring, David Wright is ready for the next step in his rehab.
The All-Star third baseman is headed to the New York Mets' complex in Florida on Thursday, a day before the team begins a nine-game road trip. He says he feels fine swinging and fielding, but he's not running full speed yet and isn't ready for minor league rehab games.
Wright was injured Aug. 2 while legging out an infield single against Kansas City. He says the medical staff has told him it's a six-week injury, which puts him on track to return in mid-September.
The Mets' captain is determined to come back before the season ends, but he wants to make sure he rehabs properly and heals completely so his hamstring doesn't become a chronic problem.
