Wright to be Activated Tonight, Johan Next?

While the Mets prepare (apparently) to bid adieu to one slugger, they are expected to welcome another one back tonight, as David Wright is all set to come off the disabled list. Out since mid-May with a lower vertebrae stress fracture, Wright went 10 for 21 during a rehab stint in the Florida State League. Prior to being disabled, Wright hit .226 with 6 homers and 26 RBI. Nick Evans is expected to be returned to Buffalo in make room for Wright.

WFAN’s Ed Coleman reported that injured ace Johan Santana is set for an August 21 return. That report however was quickly refuted by at least two other sources. There has been no official word from the team on this–but why let that stand in the way of a good story?

A Mets fan since 1971, Dan spent many summer nights of his childhood watching the Mets on WOR Channel Nine, which his Allentown, PA cable company carried. Dan was present at Game 7 of the 1986 World Series and the Todd Pratt Walkoff Game in 1999. He is also the proud owner of two Shea Stadium seats. Professionally, Dan is a Marketing Manager in the Bulk Materials Handling industry. He lives in Bethlehem PA with his wife and son, neither of whom fully get his obsession with the Mets.

    Nice job, Gary Cohen!

    “Wright smacks an RBI double for his first AB “RIGHT out of the BOX!”

    If Santana returns along with Wright, and some how Beltran blocks several trades, we may have something here, I’m not saying playoffs but at least a worthwhile team.
