According to Anthony Dicomo of MLB.com, Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters this evening that the Mets are currently evaluating David Wright on a day-to-day basis.

Mickey Callaway indicated that the team will “get creative” with him once they return home. He noted that the current plan is for Wright to begin playing in simulated games this weekend, which all but shuts down the chances of a return from a disabled list for the series against the Phillies.

Wright rejoined the team this weekend in San Francisco, he was off yesterday, but is expected to partake in baseball activities today and tomorrow.

Wright has been sidelined since May 2016 due to multiple back, neck and shoulder injuries. Upon returning to the team, he told reporters he is confident he will make it back to the big leagues soon.

“The goal has always been to make it back to the big leagues. I’m confident that will happen after I show the coaching staff and the front office that I can go through these workouts, and that I can do some of the things they’re asking of me. When that happens, for me it will be a very fulfilling feeling,” Wright said.
