David Wright is “right on schedule” for early May return

David Wright was given a three-week recovery timetable when the Mets placed him on the disabled list last week with a strained right hamstring and manager Terry Collins said Tuesday that the third baseman is “right on schedule.”

Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News reports that Wright has not resumed baseball activities yet, but “is exercising with his legs.”

Collins has turned to call-up Eric Campbell as the starting third baseman in Wright’s absence and the early results have been good with five walks and a .400 on-base percentage in six games.

It’s looking like early May for Wright’s return to the lineup, although he’ll have to avoid a setback and complete some rehab games before then.
