Wright runs bases, still wants to play this season

NEW YORK -- David Wright ran the bases at Citi Field again on Friday as he continues to work his way back into the Mets' lineup.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Wright also worked on going side-to-side on the infield, as well as having to come in from third base on slow ground balls. Wright, who's been on the disabled list since Aug. 3 with a strained right hamstring, also ran the bases on Wednesday.

"He looks great," Collins said. "We're going to advance the effort tomorrow on the bases."

After about a week and a half of rehabbing in Port St. Lucie, Fla., Wright returned to New York on Monday to continue the process.

While there's only about two weeks left to the season, Wright has been adamant that he will play again in 2013 and will get back into the lineup as soon as he's cleared.

The Mets could certainly use Wright's bat in the lineup at a time when their young players have been struggling offensively. Before going on the DL, Wright was hitting .309 with 16 home runs and 54 RBIs with a .391 on-base percentage.
