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

Captains leaving their teams is always a tough sight, but the way that David Wright is apparently leaving the New York Mets is nothing short of devastating.

Wright added that it will be up to manager Mickey Callaway if he plays in any other games on the homestand.

In an emotional address at a press conference at Citi Field on Thursday, Wright thanked the team ownership, front office, teammates, coaches, and staff. "I can not express my gratitude and appreciation for everything this organization has done and continues to do for me".

Although not officially retiring, Wright is not expected to play again after this season. Injuries to his shoulder, back, and neck have prevented him from playing since May 2016.

"The way I feel right now and from everything that the doctors have told me, there's not gonna be any improvement", he said. In 12 games between the affiliates, two coming at Las Vegas, Wright hit.171 (7-for-41) with two RBIs.

Wright, a seven-time All-Star, spent the entirety of his 13-year career with the Mets, posting a cumulative slash line of.296/.376/.491 (112 OPS+) with 242 home runs, 390 doubles, and 196 stolen bases.

"I love the game; I love the relationships; I love the preparation; I love talking baseball, anything about the game", Wright said.

Wright has two more years and $27 million remaining after this season on the eight-year, $138 million contract he signed in November 2012.
