Major hamstring injury or not, they all need to be handled with kid gloves and taken very seriously. The last thing you want to do is rush a guy back from a hamstring pull only to have him get hurt again and probably worse, leading to a tear. The Mets have been bitten quite a bit by hamstring issues in recent memory when Jose Reyes was in town, and if it takes 2, 3, 4 or even 6 weeks, let Wright heal and come back healthy, strong and ready to lead this team to their first playoff berth since 2006.
The Mets announced super utility player Eric Campbell will re-join the team today and they will be sticking with their 8 man bullpen for the foreseeable future. While Campbell has proven he can swing the bat, he has no real place in the field and hopefully can hold his own until Wright’s return.
Personally, I would prefer the Mets move Murphy to his natural position of third base, slide Flores over to second and insert Tejada at short. yes, it is a step down offensively, but in my opinion, Tejada is the best defensive shortstop on this team and Flores appears much more relaxed and comfortable at second. Will it happen? No. Should it? Probably.
