Description: Mets third baseman David Wright (hamstring) will start his rehab assignment this weekend, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Insight: He'll play with Port St. Lucie, whose season ends Sunday. After that, Wright will have to settle for simulated games until his hamstring feels good enough to play. The third baseman left open the chance that he won't return at all this season. "You don't want to go into the offseason with the uncertainty of an injury," he said. "And most importantly, I don't want this to affect me next year or the years to come. So I have to rehab this properly, be diligent with it, stay on top of it. And be honest with the rehab guys and the medical guys down in Florida, as I continue to make progress. But all signs are good. I haven't had a single setback yet."
