New York Mets infielder David Wright will be activated by the team for its final homestand

The captain will be activated from the disabled list September 25 for the team's final homestand and will start at third base September 29 against the Marlins, chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon announced Thursday.

While Wright, a seven-time All-Star, two-time Gold Glover and two-time Silver Slugger Award victor, won't be playing that night, he will start at third base on Saturday, September 29.

He opened Thursday's press conference with a joke, laughing as he said, "This kind of caught me off guard - I thought we were going to announce an extension today".

But on the final Saturday of this season, the Mets and David Wright will try to rebel, for just one afternoon.




"To my teammates coaches and staff, it's truly the honor of a lifetime to take the field with you and serve as your captain", he said, his voice cracking as he broke into tears.

Wright, 35, has played his entire career with the Mets, amassing 1777 hits, 242 home runs, and 970 RBI in 13 seasons with a batting average of.296, according to Baseball Reference. "To the fans: words can't express my gratitude and appreciation for always having my back". "I don't see that as a possibility". During his career, Wright was a seven-time All-Star, two-time Gold Glove Award victor and two-time Silver Slugger Award victor. The vast majority of the Wright deal is covered by insurance, but that doesn't mean the Mets chose to do any handiwork with their savings. If Wright does, in fact, retire, the Mets will be off the hook for the $27 million he is still owed for the final two seasons of the eight-year, $138 million contract he signed with the team December of 2012.

Mets players were watching as Wright addressed the media.
