David Wright will play for the Mets again

September 25 marks the beginning of their final homestand.

The team said Wright will be activated for the homestand, which begins September 25, and will make his final start at third base September 29 against the Miami Marlins.

Mets COO Jeff Wilpon opened Thursday's press conference at Citi Field by saying that although Wright's body has not responded the way it needed to, "out of respect for him personally, professionally, and for our fans, we want to give him this opportunity".

Although not officially retiring, Wright is not expected to play again after this season.

"The way I feel right now and from everything that the doctors have told me, there's not gonna be any improvement", he said.

Wright, as you know, hasn't appeared in a major league game since May 27, 2016 due to neck, back, and shoulder injuries.

Wright began a minor league rehab assignment with high Class-A St. Lucie on August 12 and was promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas on August 28.

Wright, 35, has played his entire career with the Mets, amassing 1777 hits, 242 home runs, and 970 RBI in 13 seasons with a batting average of.296, according to Baseball Reference.

"It's debilitating to play baseball", Wright admitted.

Wright is set to earn $15 million in 2019 and $12 million in 2020.

Some have suggested that the Mets' inclination was financially-motivated in that, as long as Wright is on the disabled list, insurance will cover much of his salary.
