New York Mets captain David Wright stepped up his efforts today in an attempt to come back from multiple major surgeries.
The team announced that Wright, 35, took some swings in an indoor batting cage today, in addition to continuing the throwing program he’s been on since May 31.
Wright has played in 1,583 career games for the Mets with a career slash line of .296/.376/.491, 242 home runs, 970 runs batted in, and a 133 OPS+.
He’s been sidelined for over two years due to multiple issues originally stemming from his spinal stenosis diagnosis in 2015.
