For the first time since April 14th, New York Mets third-baseman David Wright will play in a Major League Baseball game.

1authorrob3 - New York Mets To Activate David Wright On MondayIt’s all become a reality for fans of the New York Mets. Their beloved captain David Wright is finally coming back.

Since playing in an early season game on April 14, Wright has been sidelined with the nagging condition known as spinal stenosis. As the Mets open up a four-game set against the bottom-feeding Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night, Wright will be in the lineup and man the hot-corner.

Via Adam Rubin of ESPN New York:

“The reports are great,” Collins said. “He looks good. He’s feeling good. He’s swung the bat good. It’s the Florida State League, so I’m not putting any expectations on him.”

Wright, 32, hit .321 (9-for-28) with one RBI, five walks and six strikeouts in eight games with Class-A Port St. Luice during his rehab stint. He fielded his position well and ran the bases flawlessly.

Wright passed every test.

Despite the solid rehab performance, most speculate Wright won’t play everyday initially.

“Is he going to play three in a row? Maybe. He probably won’t play four in a row. He’ll decide that. He and I will talk every day to try to determine what day he needs off.”

At this point nobody cares. Just the sight of No. 5 back with the big club will be a much needed cherry on top of the already fantastic feeling this club has after sweeping the Colorado Rockies this weekend.
